WHO Report: More Filipino women are smoking

According to a new WHO report “Women and Health: Today’s Evidence, Tomorrow’s Agenda,” more Filipino women/girls are smoking now than ever. The Filipino data for both sexes is also higher than the global average and is up 6.8% from the previous WHO report.

This is terrible news indeed. I hope we could arrest this trend. Smoking tobacco is the 2nd most common cause of death after hypertension and it would serve us well to intensify information campaigns to educate or warn young people about the danger of getting hooked on tobacco.
