INTRODUCTION
 
The original use of tobacco was a part of the ritual of religious incantations of members of the indigenous population of the Americas in their invocations for the bestowing of blessings on their peoples and land. Sadly, with the growing and widespread use of tobacco, fuelled by its addictive properties and the marketing policies and strategies enacted by persons, groups and companies with vested financial interest in its use, the substance has become a curse on humanity because of the enormous impact of tobacco-related diseases which have been ravaging the health of its users as well as others exposed to its smoke.
