It is always a blessing when I land a project where I am able to contribute to our world and humanity; it brings more meaning to my own world.
Consequently, for the last two years I have been providing Russian Voice-Over for recordings of the Anti-Tobacco conference held at the John Hopkins Institute. The data is shocking: more than 1/3 of the world population are smokers or affected by second-hand smoke. The tobacco industry makes enormous amounts of money: approximately $6000 per human death. We are consciously reducing the average number of years people live on this planet by 14, simply by using or being exposed to tobacco. Tobacco production also negativity affects the environment due to deforestation and infectious diseases brought (such as malaria and cholera) to the families working in tobacco fields.
