Government has stressed the need to increase sensitization on the dangers of tobacco smoking.

Ministry of Health Permanent Secretary for technical services Kennedy Malama says government has noted with concern the increased abuse of tobacco smoking in the country, a situation he said is detrimental to people’s Health.

Speaking when he officiated at the Virtual Commemoration of the World No Tobacco Day in Lusaka today, Dr. Malama disclosed that there are over 7,000 chemicals in tobacco, of which 250 are known to be harmful while 69 chemicals lead to cancer.

Dr. Malama has therefore urged smokers to protect their health by quitting tobacco smoking.

But in fact the ministry Jesus has received is as superior to theirs as the covenant of which he is mediator is superior to the old one, since the new covenant is established on better promises.
