31 May is World No Tobacco Day. It is organized by the World Health Organization to highlight the health and other risks associated with tobacco use, and advocate for effective policies to reduce tobacco consumption. This year, the theme is on 'Tobacco and heart disease.'
In support of World No Tobacco Day, the Cochrane Library presents a Special Collection which highlights a selection of new or recently updated clinically relevant Cochrane Reviews that address tobacco addiction in the general population. There is free access to all reviews included.
