The World Health Organization and its partners mark May 31 as World No Tobacco Day. This years focus is “Tobacco and heart disease” which aims to increase awareness on the link between tobacco and heart and cardiovascular diseases, including stroke, which combined are the world’s leading causes of death. The St. Clair County Health Department is participating in World No Tobacco Day and is encouraging residents to quit smoking by providing free quit kits that can be picked up at their main office. Residents can also call the Michigan Tobacco Quitline at 1-800-784-8669 to help with the quitting process.
