United Kingdom (UK)-based sociologist and an avid advocate of tobacco harm reduction, Gerry Stimson, has advised African countries whose economies heavily depend on tobacco production to quickly diversify away from the indurstry. Stimson gave the caution on Wednesday in response to a question from journalists who sought his opinion on African countries whose economies have, for decades, heavily relied on tobacco production. [...] Stimson warned tobacco-dependent countries that any delays in moving away from the 'green gold' would have disastrous effects on their economies in no distant future from now.
