According to The Global Burden of Diseases report, smoking might be the cause of roughly 10% of all the deaths worldwide. And half of the smoking deaths take place in just four countries - India, China, Russia, and the US.

The report revealed that even today, when there are major anti-smoking campaigns going on all the time, laws prohibiting smoking inside and much more, in 2015 still nearly 1 billion people smoked daily. When it comes to gender, 20% of men are regular smokers and 5% of women. In 1990 the same numbers were roughly 33% of men and 8% of women.

The report was based on study incorporating information about smoking habits from 195 countries worldwide between 1990 and 2015.

"Despite more than half a century of unequivocal evidence of the harmful effects of tobacco on health, today, one in every four men in the world is a daily smoker. Smoking remains the second largest risk factor for early death and disability, and so to further reduce its impact we must intensify tobacco control to further reduce smoking prevalence and attributable burden." -- Dr. Emmanuela Gakidou.
