Interesting Fact # 1060 - Smoking

According to studies conducted by Oxford University, the Chinese Academies of Preventive Medicine and of Medical Sciences in Beijing and Cornell University in the US, 350 million people smoke in China.

(Nearly three-quarters of all Chinese men are smokers. Around a million people die of smoking-related diseases every year, the largest number of smoking-related deaths in the world. Unfortunately more than half of all male doctors in China smoke, so they can't really tell people to give it up for their health.)
