Today is World No Tobacco Day.
As an oncologist I have seen firsthand, what this substance is capable of doing.
As a non-smoker I feel I have the right to preach!
In the cancer section of the blog I have added an article which I wrote a few years ago. Since then I must admit things have improved and thanks to stricter legislation cigarette advertisments have apreciably decreased.
Having said that, the incidence of cigarette smoking continues unabated. And, in rural India especially, the usage of tobacco in its other forms is still frighteningly high, and rising alarmingly.
