Today, about 1.2 billion people are tobacco addicts. This number is estimated to reach 1.65 billion by 2025. 80% of these people belong to middle and low income classes. While 1,800 cigarettes are smoked per capita each year in Japan, this number is 1,000 in the USA. Each year, six million people die from tobacco– related diseases. If the nations of the world do not take any collective action, approximately one billion people will die from the effects of tobacco consumption over the course of the 21st Century.
