http://networkedblogs.com/ixa3F>World Health Organization produced this
video for World No Tobacco Day 2011, the theme of which is a public health
treaty, the "WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control". The tobacco
epidemic kills nearly 6 million people each year, of whom more than 5
million are users and ex-users of tobacco and more than 600 000 are
nonsmokers exposed to second-hand smoke. The WHO Framework Convention on
Tobacco Control is the world's answer to the tobacco epidemic. Adopted by
the World Health Assembly in May 2003 and entered into force less than two
years later, it now has more than 170 Parties, making it one of the most
rapidly embraced treaties in the history of the United Nations. World No
Tobacco Day 2011 highlights the critical importance of ensuring full
implementation of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control.
What a perfect day since it is Dale Jones' Birthday!!! CONGRATULATIONS ALL EXERS!
