One person dies every 6 seconds due to tobacco worldwide. And the victims are not only smokers. In Italy, every year, 70,000 deaths are caused by cigarettes & Co. Equal to 15% of total deaths (560,000). These are some of the figures from a new study, led by the association “i-think”, which has highlighted how the life of a smoker is about 10 years shorter than that of someone who does not have this bad habit. A danger even more evident among those who lit the first cigarette in young age. Just think that a fifteen-year-old person has a three times greater chance of dying from cancer than those who starts smoking ten years later.
