Saving lives from the affliction of Tobacco
#QuitTobacco #ChimbalaQuitTobacco #QuitTobaccoMarathon
Tobacco kills over 7,000 lives every year in Zambia. The need for helpful legislation has been awaiting the Zambian government to fulfill its promise to the UN and WHO enacting the Framework Convention for Tobacco Control (WHO-FCTC) which Zambia signed in 2008, 15 years ago now.
Tobacco Farmers Winning?
Most Tobacco farmers struggle to produce the Tobacco crop. Many of them struggle at the same poverty level. The real winners are the Tobacco companies and commercial farmers.
Shisha & Vaping Safe?
An hour of consuming Shisha is equivalent to about 100 sticks of cigerrates. Vaping, Shisha and e-Cigerretes are all deadly.
Tobacco Economic Plus?
Tobacco is the poison crop that gives no benefit; and no nutritional value. Children are engaged into child labor while keeping away from school. Every year Zambia loses about K3 Billion due to Tobacco.
