Abstract

Tobacco smoking is recognized as a major cause of preventable diseases and premature deaths worldwide. It is estimated that more than five million smokers die annually due to smoking related diseases globally (WHO, 2008), The death toll is expected to escalate to more than eight million deaths annually by 2030 if the current smoking patterns continue (Peto et aI., 1994). Almost half of the long-term smokers die of a smoking-related disease (Doll et aI., 1994). In Malaysia, about 10,000 Malaysians die every year from smoking attributable diseases, mainly cardiovascular, cancer and stroke (Ministry ofHealth, 2003).
