Hi bloggers!

Meanwhile we are going to give out your third task!

Smoking Kills

As all of you know, smoking is one of the biggest killers in the world causing lung cancer, heart attacks and other pulmonary diseases.

These are some sad and shocking statistics available regarding smoking :

– About a third of the male adult global population smokes.

– Worldwide, between 80,000 and 100,000 kids start smoking every day.

– Every eight seconds, someone dies from tobacco use. Around five million people around the world die of smoking every year

– About 15 billion cigarettes are sold daily – or 10 million every minute.

– Among young teens (aged 13 to 15), about one in five smokes worldwide.
