Workplace Smoking Prevention Advocacy

In accordance with the provisions of the "Tobacco Hazards Prevention Act," the university is designated as a completely smoke-free area.

(1) Hazards of Smoking

Cigarette smoke contains over 7000 chemical substances, including several hundred toxic components and approximately 93 carcinogens and harmful substances. The longer one smokes, the greater the threat to health. Quitting smoking early allows the body to gradually recover from the damages caused by smoking.

(2) Smoking Cessation Services

Quitting smoking can reduce the risk of most health problems caused by smoking, including cancer, heart disease, and lung diseases. People of all ages can improve their health by quitting smoking, with greater health improvements seen in those who quit at a younger age. Compared to individuals who continue to smoke, those who quit smoking have a 30% to 50% lower risk of developing lung cancer 10 years later. Additionally, their risk of developing oral or esophageal cancer within 5 years of quitting smoking is also reduced by half. Quitting smoking, along with discontinuing other unhealthy behaviors, can improve long-term health and quality of life.
