One major conclusion is that transnational organized crime markets are global in scale; strategies to address them should also be global. [5] The principles of combating transnational organized crime also apply to the illicit tobacco trade: the global scope and multifaceted nature of the illicit tobacco trade require a coordinated international response. (...) If most of the source, transit and destination countries ratify the Protocol, the illicit cigarette market is expected to be reduced significantly. [8] 6.2 Combating illicit trade requires a better understanding of its scope Parties should not rely on tobacco industry estimates for measuring the illicit market in their country. (...) A methodological guide for understanding and measuring cigarette-tax avoidance and evasion was developed in 2015 by Tobacconomics and may help Parties to undertake such reports. [10] 6.3 The tobacco industry is not a partner in implementing the Protocol In the Preamble to the Protocol, Parties are reminded “to be alert to any efforts by the tobacco industry to undermine or subvert strategies to combat illicit trade in tobacco products and the need to be informed of activities of the tobacco industry that have a negative impact on strategies to combat illicit trade in tobacco products”.

Launched in Rome by the Food and Agriculture Organization ( FAO ) and the World Health Organization (WHO), the report examines the best available scientific evidence on the relationship of diet, nutrition and physical activity to chronic illness such as cardiovascular diseases, several forms of cancer, diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis and dental disease. (...) It concludes that a diet low in saturated fats, sugars and salt, and high in vegetables and fruits, together with regular physical activity, will have a major impact on combating this high toll of death and disease. “Cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancers, obesity – these are no longer rich country problems,” WHO Director-General Gro Harlem Brundtland said.
