"Up to half of all tobacco users will die from a tobacco-related disease." The World Health Organization came up with MPOWER. M stands for "Monitor tobacco use and prevention policies." P stands for "Protect people from tobacco smoke." O stands for "Offer help to quit tobacco use." W stands for "Warn about the dangers of tobacco." E stands for "Enforce bans on tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship." R stands for "Raise taxes on tobacco." "Tobacco continues to kill nearly 6 million people each year, including more than 600,000 non-smokers." Showing pictures, not only words on cigarette boxes and by publicizing the ill effects of tobacco use, people are less likely to smoke. There is a plethora of information in this report. I will definitely use this as a source in my paper and I'll probably use it in the statistics sheet and public service announcement.
