Tobacco behind 7 percent deaths above 30 in India

Friday April 27, 2012 08:46:51 PM, IANS

New Delhi: Tobacco usage caused 7 percent of all deaths above the age of 30 in India, Health and Family Welfare Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad told the Lok Sabha Friday.

Azad in a written reply cited data from the World Health Organisation's 2012 Global Report on Mortality Attributable to Tobacco.

"Seven percent of all deaths for age 30 and over in India are attributable to tobacco. The proportion of deaths was almost 12 percent for men and 1 percent for women," he said.

"Tobacco was responsible for 9 percent of all non-communicable diseases and 2 percent of communicable disease-related deaths," he said.
