Tobacco use doesn’t just kill, it ruins lives.
Consider Sunita’s story and join your voice in the campaign to ban deadly smokeless tobacco products like Gutka and Pan Masaala in India.
Sunita is a 27-year old wife and mother, and a victim of smokeless tobacco use. After just four years of chewing she received a diagnosis of oral cancer – a diagnosis that forever changed her life. Her story is a powerful reminder of how deadly tobacco can be in any form and how it ruins lives. Watch it here: bit.ly/4sunita
Tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of mortality in the world today, and is responsible for more than five million deaths each year – one in ten adults worldwide. In India alone, it kills almost one million people each year. Join with Sunita and other advocates who want to end the scourge of tobacco use and limit the tobacco industry which is targeting our youth.
