According to the statistics, it is leading to almost 8 million deaths worldwide every year. The shocking thing is that among these, almost 1.2 million people are non-smokers. People are smoking in public and therefore, non-smokers are getting in touch with this. As a result, they are exposed to second-hand smoke. One of the key objectives of World No-Tobacco Day is to protect the world from smokers and tobacco industries.
