THAILAND – HELPING PEOPLE QUIT SMOKING
July 19, 2012

Smoking related diseases kill one in 10 adults globally and one in five in the US. That is one person every 8 seconds. Smoking is on the rise in developing markets and if this trend continues by 2030 it will kill one in six people globally. This is why Thailand has started a very powerful anti-smoking campaign.
