Buddhist belief in tobacco control
Tobacco is one of the greatest killers in the world, and I am appalled at the death, ill-health, sorrow, lamentation, despair and suffering that tobacco brings to humanity. It is estimated that corrently tobacco kills 3 million people a year—that is one death every 10 seconds. The tobacco war is more powerful, harmful, destructive and violent than all of the wars of this century. Conventional wars are limited in time and space, and other conditions can control war. This is not true for the undeclared tobacco war, which is worldwide and difficult to control, furthermore, it is not just a tragedy of the past, but our future is threatened by smoking as it becomnes popular with the young.
