Life is much more than smoking. Tobacco is one of the leading causes of death or chronic diseases including cancer, lung diseases, and cardiovascular diseases. According to the survey, India is the 2nd largest producer and consumer of tobacco. Cigarettes, Cigars, bidis are made from dried tobacco. In the present era of social media, we might have heard about e-cigarettes. They are often called e-cigs, e-hookahs, vapes, etc. We may have seen on the internet that e-cigs are not harmful or it’s a good way to quit smoking but it’s a BIG MYTH. E-cigs may be less harmful than regular cigarettes, but it doesn’t mean that they are harmless.
To bring awareness about cigarettes and e-cigarettes, a Seminar on “Awareness on E-Cigarette” was conducted by Poddar International College on 24th September 2019. All the students, N.S.S. volunteers, and faculty members attended this important seminar. The speaker of the seminar was Ms. Renu Beniwal and Varsha Khanchandani, who are associated with N.G.O.(Vaghdhara). Honorable Speakers addressed the students about the bad effect of E-Cigarettes and the seminar ended up with the oath against tobacco and smoking.
