Smoking. A Risky Business explores this contradiction. It describes the addictive nature of nicotine, the adverse physical effects of tobacco, and the scientific studies that prove tobacco smoke harms nonsmokers as well as smokers. It examines how the tobacco industry uses advertising, as well as political and economic strategies, to discredit medical claims -- and lure new young customers. And it takes a close look at the U.S. government's conflicting stand on tobacco: introducing laws to regulate tobacco as a drug, yet helping to open up new markets for cigarettes abroad.
Smoking is one of today's most controversial issues, and this hard-hitting book separates medical fact from ad agency hype. With teenagers the major source of new smokers, this is must reading for young smokers and nonsmokers alike.
