It kills more than 5 million people a year-an average of one person every six seconds-and account for one in 10 adult deaths. Up to half the current users will eventually die of a tobacco-related disease. More than 80% of the one billion smokers worldwide live in low- and middle-income countries, where the burden of tobacco-related illness and death is heaviest."
