dedicated to resolving the worldwide epidemic that threatens millions of lives each year.
This organization provides education and research services to
officials, health policy specialists, educators and the general public throughout the world.
Our organization believes it critical that cigarette users and nonsmokers establish
responsible practices for adult smoking behavior. Therefore:
The evidence is clear that the
tobacco industry has confounded this issue to maintain and increase the
sale of their products. For over forty years, the tobacco industry deceived
the public and manipulated scientific evidence. The tobacco industry continues to use their vast
financial resources unethically to coerce elected leaders, public officials and business
representatives to ignore the dangers of tobacco use, smoking and secondhand smoke. TobaccoFreedom.org
maintains one of the most comprehensive archives of tobacco industry documents. We urge you to
read these internal papers thoroughly. Truth allows us to create better social policies.
We are aware that most smokers and some nonsmokers generally understand the risks that
smoking and exposure to secondhand cigarette smoke present to humans. While overall smoking
continues its gradual decline in the U.S., our children become addicted at
alarming rates. Over 3,000 American teens become regular smokers each day. Nearly 80% are under
the legal age to smoke.
These innocent victims cannot
protect themselves from the sophisticated enticements by the tobacco industry. They are not
empowered to control the quality of their environment. Our young are unaware the addictive power
of nicotine and the consequences of the unhealthy environment that smoking and secondhand smoke
creates. They are unable to protect themselves from the dangerous and deadly toxins. TobaccoFreedom.org
fights to free them from these risks.
