Ahead of World No Tobacco Day on Sunday, 31 May, Stella Kyriakides, Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, said: “Every year, around 6 million people worldwide are killed by tobacco. These are 6 million deaths that could have been prevented, 6 million persons who could still be with us today - and a lot of suffering that could have been avoided. And while we know that tobacco use is the single greatest preventable cause of death, it continues to cause diseases and loss of life. This is why, in Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan, we will have a strong focus on tobacco control and take strong action to reduce the exposure to this key risk factor. And part of our priorities is to protect our young people from its dangerous effects – this is at the core of EU tobacco policies. This week, we have presented our proposal for the most ambitious and far-reaching funding programme ever for health – EU4Health. With an unprecedented €9.4 billion in EU funding, we will be able to significantly increase our support for cancer prevention and care. Tobacco use is never safe. Therefore, on this World No Tobacco Day, the best decision would be to leave smoking in the past.” The full statement is available online
