Tobacco Use Grows Globally

Half of all men in developing nations smoke. Women starting to smoke at younger age.


A new study, published in The Lancet, highlights the alarming patterns of tobacco use even after years of global tobacco control efforts.

According to the report, almost 50% of adult men in developing countries still use tobacco products, while women seem to start smoking at younger ages.

The researchers reveal that there are still major disparities in the use of tobacco and access to effective policies and treatments to limit its use.
