1.1 billion people smoked in 2019 — a record high, study says. But smoking decreased in the US.
Although smoking has decreased in the United States since the 1990s, new research shows there was a global record high of 1.1 billion people who smoked in 2019.
The study estimated the prevalence of smoking in 204 countries, with 113 of them seeing an increase of smokers since 1990.
The study also said smoking was likely to increase over the next decades, and effective implementation and enforcement of tobacco control policies were needed to increase life expectancy and decrease health care costs.
New tobacco control policies have been introduced over the last few years, with the Biden administration announcing its plan to ban menthol cigarettes and flavored cigars in April.
