Saving 795 Thousand Lives

Below please find a research article entitled "Impact of Reduced Tobacco Smoking on Lung Cancer Mortality in the United States During 1975–2000” recently published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. An excellent editorial written by Tom Glynn from the American Cancer Society accompanies the study. The research codifies for the first time the number of lung cancer deaths which have been averted due to aggressive tobacco control actions in the U.S. While 795,851 lung cancer deaths were prevented in this time period, another 2.5 million could have been averted had leaders supported more aggressive, well-funded tobacco control efforts.

Also, here is a link to the Tobacco Products Scientific Advisory Committee's final report and recommendations to the FDA on the nature and impact of the use of dissolvable tobacco products on the public health.

Finally, do we really need a tobacco sneaker? Come on Adidas!!
