Joining the nationwide campaign against smoking, ANA-MPA launched a new webpage on Monday aimed at actively contributing to raising public awareness on the hazards of smoking and ways of kicking the habit.
Greece holds top place in the consumption of tobacco products in the EU, while a law prohibiting smoking in closed, public places is in effect since September 1.
The ANA-MPA's specialised web page contains information on the current legislation, facts on the harmful consequences of smoking, ways of kicking the nicotine habit and on specialised centers.
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), smoking is the major health problem in the world today.
One person dies every 10 seconds from smoking-related diseases throughout the world, while more than 600,000 people die as a result of passive smoking, according to WHO figures.
