Monthly Updates

World No Tobacco Day


 Every year, on May 31,  WHO and partners mark World No Tobacco Day, highlighting the health and other risks associated with tobacco use.

Did you know ?

The link between tobacco and heart and other cardiovascular diseases  including stroke, which combined are the world's leading causes of death!

Tobacco use is an important risk factor for the development of coronary heart disease, stroke, and peripheral vascular disease.

Facts about tobacco, heart and other cardiovascular diseases.

Cardiovascular diseases kill more people than any other cause of death worldwide, and tobacco use and second hand smoke exposure contribute to approximately 12% of all heart disease deaths.  Tobacco use is the second leading cause of CVD after high blood pressure.

The global tobacco epidemic kills more than 7 million people each year, of which close to 900,000 are non smokers dying from breathing second hand smoke.

Smoking is risk factor for periodontal disease, the failure of implants and is implicated in oral cancers.

So please talk to your loved ones about the dangers of smoking and encourage them to even quit for one day, on World No Tobacco Day.

Feel free to speak to Dr. Essey or one of our hygienists about tobacco cessation!
