There has been a recent increase in the smoking of cigarettes by people in the developing countries of the world. This increase has been largely due to the marketing efforts of a few large international tobacco companies. The effects on the health of the people of the third world have begun to be documentable. This paper discusses this problem and suggests implications for Muslim physicians.
