SMOKING

INFOGRAPHIC: Lives up in smoke

A study published in science journal The Lancet shows if current rates of consumption continue in China, two million people will die annually from smoking-related illnesses by 2030 – double that of 2010 – and three million by 2050. This means one in three young Chinese men will die from smoking. While the number of women smoking in China continues to decrease (less than 1% born after 1960 have died from tobacco-related causes) figures show the percentage of men smoking has grown from 10% to 20% in the last 15 years.
