About this book

This book contains the full proceedings of the Tenth World Conference on Tobacco or Health, held 24-28 August 1997 in Beijing, China, and hosted by the Chinese Association on Smoking and Health and the Chinese Medical Association.
Tobacco is now causing a worldwide epidemic of premature death and disability, affecting first men and then women in developed countries, and now increasingly affecting developing countries. The theme "Tobacco: The Growing Epidemic" was chosen to reflect the increasingly global nature of the problem.
