The presentation by Dr.M.S.Chandragupta, Chief Dental Surgeon, Dr. Gupta's Dental Specialities Centre, deals with Tobacco Cessation Methodologies.
Tobacco is the number one killer in the world and kills around 9 lakh people annually in India alone. The victims succumb to tobacco in the most productive years of their life. To curb this issue the World Health Organization has brought out a public health legal treaty called ‘Frame Work Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC)’ which more than 176 countries have signed and ratified the same. India has signed in the year 2005 and initiated measures to bring down the demand and supply of tobacco in India as mandated by the FCTC. India has the second highest number of tobacco users in the world, at an alarming number of 274 million users (GATS Report, 2010) and it is high time we act together to make India Tobacco Free for a healthier and wealthier tomorrow

By acting on non-dopaminergic sites, it produces positiverewarding actions and some of the withdrawal symptoms.
The resultant release of acetylcholine,noradrenaline, serotonin, vasopressin, etc., itcauses:1.An immediate rise in blood pressure,2. Increase in heart, respiratory and pulse rates &3.
