MALAYSIA SMOKING STATISTICS


Here are more smoking statistics from Malaysia:
  • Every day about 50 teenagers below the age of 18 start smoking.
  • Smoking is estimated to have caused more than half a million coronary events.
  • Smoking rates are highest in rural Kelantan and lowest in urban Penang and Sarawak.
  • Malaysia has been dubbed the "indirect advertising capital" of the world. Some of the tobacco industry's most blatant efforts to target young people can be seen here.
  • At least two tobacco companies were among the top 10 advertisers in recent years.
