Millions of victims every year in Europe from tobacco and alcohol, the WHO publishes the "terrifying" figures

Millions of victims every year in Europe from tobacco and alcohol, the WHO

It has recently been published by the World Health Organization that alcohol, tobacco, processed foods (UPF) and fossil fuels have caused about 2.7 million deaths per year in Europe.

The WHO has called on the government to establish strict rules for products that harm health.

According to the report, powerful industries are driving disease and premature death by abusing marketing and advertising, as well as interfering with governments' efforts to prevent killer diseases such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes.

The report also states that tobacco, fossil fuels, processed foods and alcohol are responsible for more than 7,400 deaths every day in the 53 countries of Europe.

The total number of victims in Europe has reached 2.7 million people. The figures follow a 2023 study which found that alcohol, tobacco, processed food and drink and fossil fuels caused 19 million deaths a year globally.

WHO estimates that smoking causes more than 1 million deaths a year, 10% of all deaths in Europe.
Nearly 600,000 people die each year from fossil fuels (5% of all deaths), while alcohol causes more than 400,000 deaths annually. And more than 350,000 people die every year from consuming too much processed meat, sugary drinks and fatty and salty foods.

Although the numbers are alarming, abuses through marketing and advertising in Albania continue and even television is being used as a form to promote electronic cigarettes. So, they continue to circulate and are sold "horribly" even in small entities.
