Some fact about the global tobacco consumption
Scientific data showed that smoking has the influence on health of the society. Approximately, one third of grown-ups all over the world, or 1,1 billion of people among whom 200 million are women, are smokers. According to data, 47% of men and 12% of women smoke in global scale. In developing countries 48% of men and 7% of women are smokers, whereas in developed countries 42% of men and 24% of women smoke.
Usually there are great differences in spreading of smoking between sexes. For example, the number of men-smokers (elder than 15 y.o.) in Vietnam is rather high – 50%, the number of women-smokers is 3%.
According to the forecasts, in China among 300 million men, the age of whom varies from 0 to 29, 200 million will begin to smoke.
