New report details Tobacco deaths in Kenya 

Jump to full article: Nairobi Star (ke), 2012-04-01

Intro:

At least three per cent of all deaths of men in Kenya every year is triggered by tobacco use, a new global report shows. The 2012 Tobacco Atlas says this is the most preventable cause of death in the country, and anywhere else in the world. It shows that Kenyans smoke about 15 billion sticks of cigarette every year, which exposes them to heart diseases and certain forms of cancer.

The annual Atlas is the world's most comprehensive analysis of tobacco related activities and is produced by the American Cancer Society and the World Lung Foundation. "Worldwide, smoking causes almost 80 per cent of male and nearly 50 per cent of female lung cancer deaths," says the report endorsed by the World Health Organisation.

The statistics on Kenya are compiled from the Demographic and Health Surveys among other indicators. The Ministry of Public Health is now calling for increased controls on consumption of cigarettes to stop these deaths. "Tobacco tax should be increased to reach the recommended WHO level of 70 per cent of retail price," said head of the non-communicable diseases department Dr William Maina.
