Students of WGC sensitized on harmful effects of tobacco

A sensitisation on “Tobacco use and its harmful effects on human” was organised by the District Tobacco Control Cell (DTCC) Mon on October 25 at Wangkhao Government College Mon.
A press release by DTCC Mon informed that during the programme, resource person, district nodal officer, NTCP Mon, Dr. I. Simon Sumi highlighted on types of tobacco consumption such as smoke and smokeless form. He also stressed on the importance of sensitizing the people on harmful effects of second hand and third hand smoking.
Dr. Sumi said exposure to second hand and third hand smoke has immediate harmful effects on the heart and blood vessels and could cause coronary heart disease and stroke. He added that women and children are the most vulnerable to second hand and third hand smoking.
Dr. Sumi then urged the students not to fall into tobacco addiction but rather to spread the message on ill effects of tobacco. A short video clip on “tobacco” was also displayed at the end of the programme.
