Public Service Announcement Video
Watch the video with a public service announcement (PSA) designed to educate adults about the long-term impact of tobacco use on this nation’s future – its youth.

History of the Surgeon General's Report on Smoking and Health
Quote by the Office of the Surgeon General about the half century of research on tobacco and its effects:
January 2014 marked the 50th anniversary of the first Surgeon General’s Report on Smoking and Health. The 1964 landmark report, released by Surgeon General Dr. Luther Terry, was the first federal government report linking smoking and ill health, including lung cancer and heart disease. In the last 50 years, 31 Surgeon General’s Reports have been released, increasing our understanding of the devastating health and financial burdens caused by tobacco use. We now know that smoking causes a host of cancers and other illnesses and is still the leading preventable cause of death in the United States, killing 443,000 people each year.
In 2014, we highlight half a century of progress in tobacco control and prevention, present new data on the health consequences of tobacco use, and introduce initiatives that can potentially end the tobacco use epidemic in the United States in the 32nd Surgeon General’s Report on Smoking and Health.
