Smoker trend among woman


Smoking is hateful to the nose, harmful to the brain, and dangerous to the lungs.
--King James I 
Approximately 250 million females today are at least take smoke everyday. In
developed countries about 22 percent of females  and in developing countries 9 percent of females smoke tobacco. As traditionally, plenty of females in south Asia chew
tobacco. Cigarette smoking among females is down in plenty of
developed countries, namely Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the
America.

But this trend is not found in all developed countries. In
several southern, central & eastern European countries
cigarette smoking is either still increasing among females or has
not shown any decline. The tobacco industry promotes
cigarettes to females using seductive but false images of
vitality, slimness, modernity, emancipation, sophistication and sexual beauty. In point of fact, it causes
disease & death. Tobacco companies have now produced a
range of brands aimed at females. Most notable are the “women-
only” brands: these “feminised” cigarettes are long, extra-slim, low-tar, light-coloured or menthol.
