Mission Heal: spreading lives, eliminating tobacco use: World No Tobacco Day

World No Tobacco Day

World No Tobacco Day is a crucial turning point for people addicted to tobacco, not only in India but across the world. Some people use tobacco as a stress buster, neglecting the harm it causes to their health. However, this habit is not acceptable, as some people use it as a basic need. This day is an alarm to change the habit of consuming tobacco, even though it is a threatening addiction. Despite this, people still use it. We must understand the importance of World No Tobacco Day, and our organization, Mission Heal, works towards uplifting people from tobacco addiction.

What is World No Tobacco Day, and what purpose does it serve?

World No Tobacco Day is observed every year on May 31st. This global health initiative was established by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1987. The aim of this initiative is to educate people about the dangers of tobacco use and encourage them to adopt a tobacco-free lifestyle.

By doing so, we can reduce the burden of tobacco-related illnesses and fatalities worldwide. Every year, the global community emphasizes the importance of tobacco control and the need for stronger policies to reduce its prevalence. This ultimately saves lives and improves public health.

Why is it crucial to celebrate World No-Tobacco Day?

World No Tobacco Day is a crucial occasion that aims to shed light on the significant health, social, and environmental issues associated with tobacco use. By raising awareness and fostering discussions about tobacco control, the day encourages individuals to quit or refrain from using tobacco products.

Furthermore, it emphasizes the need for stronger systems to reduce tobacco consumption, ultimately contributing to better public health and well-being. Celebrating World No Tobacco Day also unites people globally in the fight against this preventable yet deadly epidemic.

Why is tobacco use common in society?

  • Tobacco use remains widespread in modern society due to various factors, such as social norms, easy accessibility, marketing strategies, and addiction.
  • Over time, many cultures have linked tobacco with rituals or social gatherings, which has contributed to its widespread acceptance. Moreover, tobacco products are typically easily accessible and affordable, which makes them appealing to a broad range of individuals.
  • Tobacco companies have also used effective marketing tactics to promote their products, often targeting vulnerable populations like young people or those with lower incomes. Lastly, nicotine, the primary addictive substance in tobacco, creates a strong dependency that makes it challenging for users to quit.

Why are young people in the 21st century more prone to becoming addicted to tobacco use?

There are several reasons why young people in the 21st century are more likely to become addicted to tobacco. Some of these factors include the easy availability of tobacco products, aggressive marketing campaigns aimed at young people, the influence of peers, and the normalization of tobacco use in popular culture.

In addition, the increasing popularity of e-cigarettes and vaping, which are often marketed as safer alternatives, has attracted many young users who may not be aware of the potential health risks and addictive properties of nicotine.

What diseases can tobacco use cause in the human body?

Tobacco use can cause a variety of diseases that affect multiple body systems. These include lung cancer, heart disease, respiratory diseases, oral health issues, digestive problems, reproductive issues, and complications in diabetes management.

Furthermore, smoking weakens the immune system, making individuals more vulnerable to infections and other illnesses.

How many people die due to tobacco consumption?

  • The tobacco epidemic is a significant public health threat that the world has ever faced and kills over 8 million people each year worldwide.
  • Out of these deaths. More than 7 million are the result of direct tobacco use, and approximately 1.3 million are due to non-smokers being exposed to second-hand smoke.

How does tobacco use weaken the community as well as the country’s growth?

Tobacco use has harmful effects not only on individuals but also on the community and the country’s growth. At the community level, it leads to increased healthcare costs, higher rates of illnesses such as cancer and heart disease, and reduced productivity, which puts a strain on community resources and well-being.

At the national level, tobacco use reduces the overall workforce’s health and productivity, hindering a country’s development and progress.

Furthermore, tobacco consumption leads to increased healthcare expenditures, reduced productivity, and higher insurance costs, all of which can hinder a country’s growth.

Mission Heal is making a positive change in society by promoting tobacco-free society.

Our organization believes that we only have one life to live. And it is important to use it for good work and live it to the fullest. However, the use of tobacco has become increasingly common, even among youth. This is a concerning trend, as it is not good for the health of both young and old.

As an NGO, our aim is to raise awareness about the harmful effects of tobacco use. Create a society where people do not use tobacco, and discourage others from using it. 

Our initiatives
  • Our organization offers counseling services to educate individuals, particularly young people, on the harmful effects of tobacco on their health. Our goal is to encourage a tobacco-free lifestyle, enabling individuals to lead a healthy life.
  • Apart from providing counseling services. We also organize awareness camps in slums and rural areas to educate people about the harmful effects of tobacco on individuals and society. Our aim is to encourage those who use tobacco to quit and embrace a healthier lifestyle.

Conclusion

World No-Tobacco Day aims to save people’s lives by spreading awareness. However, as responsible citizens, it is also our duty to help those who are addicted to tobacco. It could be our own family members who are struggling with this addiction. Our organization, Mission Heal, believes in society as our own family. Which is why we are dedicated to saving lives through our never-ending efforts to make this world a better place.
