Southern Arkansas Health Leaders Call for Legislation to Protect Kids From Tobacco
The legislation would give FDA the authority to crack down on tobaccomarketing and sales to kids, stop tobacco companies from misleading the publicabout the health risks of their products and require changes in theseproducts, such as the reduction or removal of harmful constituents.
Unbelievably, despite being the most deadly product sold in America,tobacco products are exempt from basic health regulations that apply to otherproducts we consume, such as food and drugs. The FDA regulates a box ofmacaroni and cheese and a tube of lipstick, but not a pack of cigarettes.Products that are regulated by the FDA will be on display at the event.
