Youth have been cautioned at the 17th World Conference on Tobacco that is currently taking place in Cape Town to become a tobacco free generation.

The conference seeks to inform people about the dangers of tobacco use.

World Health Organization (WHO) Ambassador for non-communicable diseases Michael Bloomberg says 7 million people die every year as a result of tobacco use.

Bloomberg has also called on counties to amend certain policies in an effort to stop the use of tobacco.
