Health Groups Slam Tobacco Marketing to Women
Date:2/18/2009

co products
  • Require larger, more effective health warnings on tobacco packages and advertising
  • Require tobacco companies to disclose the contents of their products
  • Grant the FDA authority to require changes in new and existing tobacco products to protect public health, such as the removal or reduction of harmful ingredients
  • "This report is a sober reminder that the tobacco industry has become more aggressive in marketing deadly products to women," Nancy Brown, chief executive of the American Heart Association, said in the news release. "Hip and trendy packages cannot disguise the health hazards of smoking and the risk for heart disease and stroke. We must give the Food and Drug Administration the authority to rein in the industry's relentless campaign to manipulate young women with products that send the wrong message."
