May 31 is World No Tobacco Day

Tobacco threatens our health, development and economy.  In conjunction with World No Tobacco Day, we call for better protection against this threat.

• At least 20,000 Malaysians die from smoking related deaths each year. These are senseless deaths that should be prevented.
• It’s not just lung cancer: smoking also increases the risk of at least 13 other types of cancer, heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes.
• Teenage smokers know smoking is unhealthy, and want to quit but they need help*.

All of these can be reduced through strict enforcement and tighter legislation. On our part, we intent to lobby the Government to impose total ban on smoking in public places, increase the price of cigarettes and implement plain cigarette packaging (removal of all branding – colours, graphics, corporate logos and trademark on cigarette packages).

We need your voice: if you support our campaign,  simply reply this email by Sunday, 28 May with your name, address, or even a logo of your organisation. For more information, call 03-2698 7300 and ask for the PR and Communications Department.

*based on results from our quit smoking programme in selected schools in Kuala Lumpur.

If  you smoke, giving up completely is the best thing you can do for your health.
