Altina doll named because of tar and nicotine

To mark the National Day Against Tobacco, on Thursday (29), the National Cancer Institute (Inca) promoted actions to raise awareness about the dangers of smoking in various parts of the state of Rio de Janeiro. The initiative aims to mobilize the public for social, economic and environmental problems caused by smoking.

In Bus Americo Fontenelle, the capital of Rio, where nearly 1 million people pass daily, the Inca are exposing a doll to show the problems that smoking can cause. The doll body is transparent and shows the impact of the cigarette in the body. In addition, informational materials are exposed and campaign volunteers take questions regarding smoking.

The pulmonologist Ricardo Meirelles, spokesman for the campaign, said the initiative comes primarily from doubts about the hookah. It is a campaign focused on the issue of the hookah, which is bad for health. The smoker ends up consuming, even if to a lesser extent, nicotine, which opens the door to the cigarette.

Beyond the Terminal Americo Fontenelle, the action in the state capital of the Inca occur until late afternoon in Terminal Menezes Cortes, also in the center, and Madureira Park in the north. Baixada Fluminense, the action takes place in the bus terminals in Nova Iguaçu and Nilópolis.

Research published in 2012 by the Ministry of Health shows that 12% of the population smoke regularly and 10% are passive smokers. The numbers represent a drop of 20% of people who smoke between 2006 and 2012.
