Indore: Nine out of 10 deaths caused by cancer are due to consumption of tobacco. In India, 7300 people die every year because of passive smoking, said Dr Arvind Pancholia, a member of Indian Medical Association (IMA) Indore chapter on Sunday.
He was addressing a symposium in the city ahead of World No Tobacco Day. Pancholia said smoking is not only harmful for smokers, but also deadly for fetus.
The doctors associated with IMA Indore chapter stressed on sensitizing people. “Cigarette manufacturing cannot be stopped since it generates a lot of revenue, there can be a control on the consumption by spreading awareness,” Govt Dental College principal Dr Deshraj Jain said.
