Every hour 10 people die from tobacco-related diseases in Brazil. In the year that number reaches 200,000 dead due to the cigarette, but in the world rises to 4 million victims, or one every 8 seconds.

To combat smoking and to disseminate information about the harms caused by cigarettes, the World Health Organization (WHO) instituted since 1987, the May 31 as World No Tobacco Day. Yes, my dear. It’s today.

It’s the cigarette that needs you and not vice versa. See the gallery. Put it out of your life at once.

Forget the image above. It’s totally fake! You can see that its content was manipulated by authorities of the Department of Defense and other government agencies … The image below is the REAL photo. No photoshop, no effects, no lies.

Children of Earth, a gallery made with pictures taken from

Woophy stands for WOrld Of PHotographY, a website founded by a Dutch collective of photo aficionados and internet designers who believe navigation on internet can be more visual, logical and associative. The goal of Woophy’s founders is to create an accessible, visual, current, democratic and collective work of art comprised of a database picturing our remarkable world. With the help of (amateur) photographers across the world we strive to ultimately cover every inch of our world map with images that represent the world’s beauty and peculiarity from all different cultural perspectives.
