Join us for World No Tobacco Day 2020

On May 31st, the American Heart Association joins NCD Child to debunk myths and expose big tobacco’s devious tactics to addict our young children.  Join us on this global day of awareness to call for protecting our young people from the marketing of big tobacco companies and empowering them to use their voices to expose Big Tobacco.  The World Health Organization (WHO) sponsors this awareness day to highlight the health risks of using tobacco and to encourage governments to adopt tobacco control policies that help to reduce smoking and access to all forms of tobacco or nicotine products (including e-cigarettes and vaping devices). The AHA’s very own You’re the Cure youth advocates are playing a role by lending their voice to this year’s global campaign, and you can too. 

World No Tobacco Day is Sunday, May 31st 


  • Tobacco use is responsible for 25% of all cancer deaths globally. Use of nicotine and tobacco products increases the risk of cancer, heart disease and lung disease. #TobaccoExposed

  • Nicotine in e-cigarettes is highly addictive and can damage young people’s developing brains. #TobaccoExposed

  • Smokeless doesn’t mean harmless. Tobacco products including e-cigarettes, chewing tobacco and flavored products still hurt your body. #TobaccoExposed

  • Tobacco products kill more than 8 million people per year so Big Tobacco uses influencers, flavors, and ads to target young people and replace their customers. Don’t fall for it. #TobaccoExposed
