1,000 Strong

by Amy M. on Monday, November 11, 2013

More than 750 advocates just like you have already sent their letters requesting the Food and Drug administration eliminate menthol flavoring in cigarettes. Now we need you to help us stand 1,000 strong before the Nov. 22nd deadline.

Smoking remains the leading cause of preventable death in our country and is a significant risk factor for heart disease and stroke. And now, there is compelling scientific evidence that menthol in cigarettes leads more young people to take up smoking, increases nicotine addiction and makes it more difficult for smokers to quit.

Will you help us stand 1,000 strong as we tell the Food and Drug Adminstration to act now to prohibit the use of menthol in cigarettes?
