PositiveTip for

FDA Acts to Curb Tobacco Industry Deception

Bravo to the FDA for taking the tobacco industry bull by horns!

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.
