Tobacco consumption is the leading cause of health loss and premature and preventable death. It is one of the most important risk factors for the main chronic cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, as well a large number of cancers. In addition, passive exposure to tobacco smoke increases the risk of lung cancer and other diseases in non-smokers. The harm caused directly by smoking mainly affects smokers, a quarter of whom will die during their working life and have lost between twenty or twenty-five years of their life. But tobacco consumption also affects society as a whole.
