Effects of Tobacco on Women's Reproductive Health

Tobacco claims the lives of about 9,81,100 people every year in India, yet more than 1,20,00,0000 adults and 25,42,000 children continue to use tobacco in various forms every day (The Tobacco Atlas/India). Even with all the awareness campaigns sweeping the country, the people have been turning deaf ears to the messages. Recently, in a cutting-edge article, Dr. Duru Shah exposed the harmful effects of tobacco on women's reproductive health. She had also explained the dangers of exposures to tobacco during pregnancy.
