Tobacco

Tobacco consumption is a major contributor to the poor health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, with estimates that it accounts for 17% of the life expectancy gap between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and other Australians. With 47% of adult Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people smoking, it is way above the 17% rate for the wider Australian adult population.
