Making the next generation tobacco-free

Dept. of Health & Human Services
Over the last 50 years, more than 20 million Americans have died from smoking.
Today’s report, The Health Consequences of Smoking—50 Years of Progress: A Report of the Surgeon General, comes a half century after the historic 1964 Surgeon General’s report, which concluded that cigarette smoking causes lung cancer. Over the last 50 years tobacco control efforts have saved 8 million lives but the job is far from over.
This report provides the impetus to accelerate public health and clinical strategies to drop overall smoking rates to less than 10% in the next decade. Our nation is now at a crossroads, and we must choose to end the tobacco epidemic once and for all.
Facebook Embedded Post: Making the next generation tobacco-free
Today, we’re asking Americans to join a sustained effort to make the next generation a tobacco-free generation. This is not something the federal government can do alone. We need to partner with the business community, local elected officials, schools and universities, the medical community, the faith community, and committed citizens in communities across the country to make the next generation tobacco free.
Together, we can make the next generation tobacco-free.
