Shepparton Lowest Smoking Deaths

Greater Shepparton has been named as one of two country victoria locations where smoking related deaths are the lowest in the satate. Still, New figures released from Victoria’s Cancer council reveal that Smoking kills 11 people in Victoria each day and causes more preventable deaths than road accidents, alcohol and drug use, amounting to up to nearly 4,000 people each year. With these latest figures, Australian Medical Association Victorian president Dr Doug Travis has called on the Victorian government to do more to protect children from taking up smoking.
