Crusade Against Tobacco:A Project by Neil Charitable Trust

Tobacco Facts of India:

19 crore tobacco users in India; 6 crore of them Gutkha users.

90% of cancers of oral cavity and larynx can be eliminated in a tobacco-free society.

Oral cancer due to Gutkha consumption is spreading like an epidemic among children.

Children as young as 11 - 12 develop pre-cancerous lesions, merely two years after using Gutkha regularly.

Costs of just 3 effects of Gutkha = Heart Disease + Chest Diseases + Cancer

Estimated at Rs. 18,000 crores/ year 25% of heart disease in India is tobacco-related.

No. of deaths from Tobacco in 1 year in the US = 418000., compared to that from HIV/ AIDS - 30000

One death every 8 seconds in the world is from tobacco

By 2003, the death toll attributable to tobacco will touch 10 million.

India is the third largest tobacco producer in the world (after China and USA) The business is valued at over £ 1/2 billion.


Lets Weed Tobacco out of our Lives


There are 19 CRORE tobacco users in India…and 6 CRORE of them are Gutkha users. Are you one of them? If you are, did you know that:

Every 8 seconds, one person in the world dies due to tobacco?? (So if you consume tobacco, buy a watch…it'll help YOU count YOUR last few seconds!)

Every year, 418 000 people in the U.S. die from tobacco…as opposed to 30 000 from the AIDS virus. THAT'S 13 TIMES MORE DEATHS!! And yet we continue to use tobacco, somehow thinking that it's "cool"!!!

By 2003, tobacco will have caused a grand total of 10 million deaths!! (Sounds like the Indian Birth Rate!). The evil power of tobacco seems to be stronger than love…but we can't let tobacco win!!

25% of heart disease in India is tobacco-related. The other part is mind-related... SO clear your head!... dump tobacco... date life... she's beautiful!!!


And what about Gutkha??


Well, Oral Cancer due to Gutkha consumption is spreading amongst children like a forest fire in the Amazon... IT IS BECOMING AN EPIDEMIC!! Do you want to be a victim?!

Children as young as 11 - 12 develop pre-cancerous lesions, just after two years of using it!! Let's not base our lives on ignorance. IT COULD BE YOUR MOUTH NEXT!! Disgusting!!

Costs of just 3 effects of Gutkha: Heart Disease + Chest Diseases + Cancer = approximately Rs. 18,000 crores/year!!

India is the third largest tobacco producer in the world (after China and the USA). The business is valued at over £ 1/2 billion... you are paying them to kill YOU!

But we can SAY GOODBYE to 90% of oral cavity and larynx cancers if we have a tobacco-free society


In a nutshell, tobacco consumption leads to dental caries, tongue and oral cancer, heart disease, gangrene, laryngeal cancer, lung disease - emphysema, asthma in children, lung cancer, impotence, bladder cancer, stomach and esophageal cancer, miscarriages in women, low birthweight babies, and recurrent ear and nose infections in children.


If you don't understand that... get this. If there is one thing worse than not having Love, it's not having Life... and if that doesn't motivate you enough... You can kiss your sweet girl goodbye, 'coz you are either going to turn impotent... or die before she says yes!!


SO GET WITH IT AND BE TRULY COOL... SMOKEOUT TOBACCO FROM YOUR LIFE!!!!
