Almost 6 million people in the world die from tobacco each year. 5 million people die of active smoking and more than 600,000 non-smokers die from exposure to passive smoke. The aim of this website is to provide a one-stop web platform assessing the relationship between active and passive smoking and a range of health outcomes, focusing on lung health.
