The Unbiased launched a map exhibiting the typical variety of cigarettes per individual, per yr in each nation the place Lebanon got here out third, after China (11-12 cigarettes a day) and Belarus (10-11 cigarettes a day). The map is predicated on information from the World Well being Group, which exhibits that the typical in Lebanon is three,023 cigarettes per yr, which implies round Eight-9 cigarettes per grownup per day which is A LOT!
I attempted in search of a WHO report on cigarette consumption per nation however I couldn’t discover any. I did discover different web sites sharing an identical map with comparable numbers and linking it to a 2014 World Most cancers Report 2014 by WHO in order that’s most likely it (but it surely’s not obtainable to obtain free of charge).
Whether or not it’s an outdated report or not, the numbers are alarming and my guess is that they didn’t embrace Arguile within the report.
