WiRED Marks World No Tobacco Day

Spotlight on Tobacco’s Impact on Lung Health


Smoking tobacco affects every organ in the human body and causes or contributes to many chronic and fatal illnesses such as cancer, stroke and heart disease.


Every year, on May 31, the World Health Organization and its global partners celebrate World No Tobacco Day. This year the focus is on tobacco and lung health. The campaign will increase awareness of the role that tobacco plays in people’s lung health from cancer to chronic respiratory disease.


WiRED International offers modules on quitting tobacco in its Health Learning Center. Many of the collection’s 400+ modules stress cutting out tobacco as crucial to warding off disease and to maintaining good health.


Tobacco kills one person every four seconds. Make every day No Tobacco Day and enjoy a tobacco-free healthy lifestyle.
