FDA Acts to Curb Tobacco Industry Deception

For decades the tobacco industry has decieved the public about the risks of light and low-tar cigarettes as safer alternatives. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has now taken action to require that any future health claims for tobacco products be supported by a wide range of sound evidence, benefit the public, and must be marketed in a way that does not increase youth tobacco use or discourage quitting. These new regulations will put the burden of proof on the tobacco manufactures to tell the truth.

PositiveTip: Strongly encourage young people to stay away from this deadly habit.
