Heart Foundation congratulates the Australian Government for passing of new tobacco control legislation

The Heart Foundation welcomes the passing of the Public Health (Tobacco and Other Products) Bill 2023 in Parliament today as a critical action to prevent and further reduce the heart health harm caused to people by tobacco products and nicotine addiction. Smoking and vaping both present major heart health risks to people living in Australia: smoking makes people four times more likely to die of a heart attack or stroke, and three times more likely to die from sudden cardiac death.
