Healton pointed out that obesity and smoking are the two factors which create the highest risk of death. “People who lost their lives due to smoking in the world rise to second place. Today using alcohol and smoking constitute 12.6 per cent of the infant mortality rate. In 21st century, so the number will reach 1 billion people who loose their lives.”
