The answer to this question has implications for any future dispute on plain packaging of tobacco products because it affects whether Guidelines to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control WHO FCTC could be relevant international standards. On appeal, however, the United States argued that the instrument was not developed by an “international standardizing organization” because the parties to the AIDCP are parties to an international agreement and not to a body or organization. The United States also argued that the AIDCP does not have recognized activities in standardization. The decision stresses that an international standardizing body must i have recognized activities in standardization and ii be open in terms of membership to the relevant bodies of at least all WTO Members paras 357 – 358. So, do WHO FCTC Guidelines constitute international standards under the TBT Agreement.

THE NSW Court of Appeal has been asked by British American Tobacco to remove a Dust Diseases Tribunal judge from hearing a landmark claim that smoking and asbestos jointly caused lung cancer. The company argued yesterday that Judge Jim Curtis should be disqualified because of a pre-trial ruling he made in a similar case in 2006 about its destruction of documents. In the Mowbray case, ”Mr Gulson was the man who fingered British American Tobacco on document destruction,” Mr Sackar said. British American Tobacco is appealing against Judge Curtis’s refusal in May to disqualify himself, when he said his pre-trial ruling on privilege in the Mowbray case was ”far from” expressed in terms of finality.

The group was formed in reaction to the June 1997 tobacco agreement which, they say, excludes private, union, and health care funds from receiving any settlement proceeds. The coalition said the deal would also eliminate their pursuit of 31 class-action lawsuits in 31 states, keeping such health care plans from getting any kind of reimbursement for tobacco-related medical expenses. The coalition represents 2500 labor-management health and welfare funds in the U.S., about 33 million union workers.

Instead of reducing youth smoking, they insidiously encourage kids to use tobacco and become addicted Philip Morris customers. We call on the tobacco industry, and Philip Morris in particular, to stop their phony youth prevention programs which do more harm than good.

Punitive damages for the plaintiff have often been awarded as a result of a successful litigation. 6 People have died as a result of lung cancer from tobacco smoking 7 and were often unable to prove that it was the cigarettes of the tobacco manufacturer that caused the person's death. the US Supreme Court held that the Surgeon General's warning did not preclude suit by smokers against tobacco companies on several claims, and that the federal laws on tobacco regulation aren't worded to override state laws. Philip Morris' October 2002: A Los Angeles jury issued $28 billion in punitive damages against Philip Morris.

Annual government funding for tobacco control is just several hundred thousand yuan for each province on the Chinese mainland, far below what’s needed and much less than the amounts provided in other countries, anti-smoking experts said. Samet said that the prevalence of smoking peaked around 1961 in the US, when half of the men and 35 percent of the women smoked. The change has improved the US public health situation. Lung cancer rates among men began to drop some 20 years ago, while in women they are just beginning to decrease, he added. Usually, smoking goes way up and about 20 to 30 years later, there is an evident rise in lung cancer, Samet said. In China, smoking rates began to increase after the late 1970s and then dropped slightly in the 1990s, said Yang Gonghuan, head of the China Tobacco Control Office under the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

"We have conclusive evidence from around the country that tobacco prevention programs work to protect kids, save lives and save money for taxpayers by reducing tobacco-related health care costs," pointed out Corr. The CDC recommends that states spend approximately 20 percent to 25 percent of the money on effective, comprehensive prevention programs. Additional results indicate: Only 19 states have committed even 50 percent of the minimum funding level recommended by the CDC.

None of these tobacco CEOs were indicted for perjury. The early 90s was pretty much the height of the lung cancer epidemic. Ever since then, lung cancer rates overall have been slowly dropping, especially among men. It was also the height of “Joe Camel,” a wildly successful marketing campaign by RJ Reynolds that appealed to beginning smokers i.e., teenagers. What was really alarming people at the time was that the teenage smoking rate had been steadily decreasing until the mid- to late-80s. Then, shockingly, the teen smoking rate started going up, and going up markedly. Why. Joe Camel. Tobacco paying millions every year to insert...

It was the first in a campaign to dispute reports that smoking cigarettes could cause lung cancer and had other dangerous health effects.

The tobacco industry followed it with other advertisements expressing doubt about scientific research linking disease and smoking. 1 Historical context Claims Promises See also References External links.

A man named Philip Morris was an English-based cigarette manufacturer who first thought of branching out cigarette production to the United States to widen their marketing and selling market to more people, in more areas and to make his business a more profitable venture. Mr.Phillip Morris opened his first American subsidiary to sell many cigarette brands, including Marlboro, in 1902. Although the brand was taken off the market after the end of World War II, its popularity returned in the 1950's, when Marlboro started making cigarettes with filters. This was around the time that the Surgeon General started issuing warnings about smoking un-filtered cigarettes. Filtered cigarettes were then considered a safer alternative to the un-filtered ones. Since the filter will catch some of the harmful chemicals that are given off fr...

A Florida jury awarded a widow $23.6 billion in punitive damages in her lawsuit against tobacco giant R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, her lawyer said. Reynolds was negligent in not informing him that nicotine is addictive and smoking can cause lung cancer. J Reynolds, said, The damages awarded in this case are grossly excessive and impermissible under state and constitutional law. We plan to file post-trial motions with the trial court promptly and are confident that the court will follow the law and not allow this runaway verdict to stand. Robinson s case was once part of a class-action lawsuit in which a jury had awarded $145 billion in damages, but in 2006 the Florida Supreme Court overturned that verdict.

(1/764) Decline in cigarette consumption following implementation of a comprehensive tobacco prevention and education program--Oregon, 1996-1998.

In November 1996, residents of Oregon approved a ballot measure increasing the cigarette tax by 30 cents (to 68 cents per pack). The measure stipulated that 10% of the additional tax revenue be allocated to the Oregon Health Division (OHD) to develop and implement a tobacco-use prevention program. In 1997, OHD created Oregon's Tobacco Prevention and Education Program (TPEP), a comprehensive, community-based program modeled on the successful tobacco-use prevention programs in California and Massachusetts. To assess the effects of the tax increase and TPEP in Oregon, OHD evaluated data on the number of packs of cigarettes taxed before (1993-1996) and after (1997-1998) the ballot initiative and implementation of the program. Oregon's results also were compared with national data. This report summarizes the results of the analysis, which indicate that consumption of cigarettes in Oregon declined substantially after implementation of the excise tax and TPEP and exceeded the national rate of decline.  (+info)

(2/764) Settling for less? Tobacco industry.

In November 1998, a coalition of state negotiators and five tobacco companies reached an agreement in which the cigarette makers would pay out the biggest financial settlement in history, $206 billion over the next 25 years to 46 states, to compensate for the medical treatment of patients suffering from tobacco-related health problems. Critics of the settlement say the tobacco companies are getting off the hook too easily, and that the deal's public health provisions are unacceptably riddled with loopholes. But the attorneys general who negotiated the settlement defended it as a good deal-but clearly not as a panacea. Ultimately, they feel, Congress should pass legislation to provide essential reforms, including full Food and Drug Administration authority over tobacco.  (+info)

(3/764) Turning over a new leaf. Tobacco.

Anticipating a diminishing market for cigarettes and other tobacco products in the future, researchers around the country are studying alternative uses for tobacco plants. The most promising field of research for tobacco involves the genetic engineering of tobacco plants to produce various substances such as industrial chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and consumer product ingredients. Tobacco has been called the "fruit fly of the plant kingdom" because of the ease with which it can be genetically engineered. There are countless possibilities for the use of tobacco, but current efforts are concentrating on engineering tobacco to produce vaccines, human enzymes, and plastics. Tobacco researchers have been successful in expressing bovine lysozyme, an enzyme with antibacterial properties, and insulin.  (+info)

(4/764) Tobacco control advocates must demand high-quality media campaigns: the California experience.

OBJECTIVE: To document efforts on the part of public officials in California to soften the media campaign's attack on the tobacco industry and to analyse strategies to counter those efforts on the part of tobacco control advocates. METHODS: Data were gathered from interviews with programme participants, direct observation, written materials, and media stories. In addition, internal documents were released by the state's Department of Health Services in response to requests made under the California Public Records Act by Americans for Nonsmokers' Rights. Finally, a draft of the paper was circulated to 11 key players for their comments. RESULTS: In 1988 california voters enacted Proposition 99, an initiative that raised the tobacco tax by $0.25 and allocated 20% of the revenues to anti-tobacco education. A media campaign, which was part of the education programme, directly attacked the tobacco industry, exposing the media campaign to politically based efforts to shut it down or soften it. Through use of outsider strategies such as advertising, press conferences, and public meetings, programme advocates were able to counter the efforts to soften the campaign. CONCLUSION: Anti-tobacco media campaigns that expose industry manipulation are a key component of an effective tobacco control programme. The effectiveness of these campaigns, however, makes them a target for elimination by the tobacco industry. The experience from California demonstrates the need for continuing, aggressive intervention by nongovernmental organisations in order to maintain the quality of anti-tobacco media campaigns.  (+info)

(5/764) Features of sales promotion in cigarette magazine advertisements, 1980-1993: an analysis of youth exposure in the United States.

OBJECTIVE: To examine the presence of features of sales promotion in cigarette advertising in United States magazines, and to describe trends in youth (ages 12-17) exposure to such advertising (termed "promotional advertising"). DESIGN: Analysis of 1980-1993 annual data on: (a) total pages and expenditures for "promotional advertising" (advertising that contains features of sales promotion) in 36 popular magazines (all magazines for which data were available), by cigarette brand; and (b) readership characteristics for each magazine. We defined promotional advertising as advertisements that go beyond the simple advertising of the product and its features to include one or more features of sales promotion, such as coupons, "retail value added" promotions, contests, sweepstakes, catalogues, specialty item distribution, and sponsorship of public entertainment or sporting events. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Total pages of, and expenditures for promotional advertising in magazines; and gross impressions (number of readers multiplied by the number of pages of promotional advertising) among youth and total readership. RESULTS: During the period 1980-1993, tobacco companies spent $90.2 million on promotional advertising in the 36 magazines. The proportion of promotional advertising appearing in "youth" magazines (defined as magazines with a greater than average proportion of youth readers) increased from 7% in 1980 to nearly 100% in 1987. Although youth readers represented only 19% of magazine readers, the proportion of youth gross impressions to total gross impressions of tobacco promotional advertising exceeded this value throughout the entire period 1985-1993, peaking at 33% in 1987. The five "youth" cigarette brands (defined as brands smoked by at least 2.5% of smokers aged 10-15 years in 1993) accounted for 59% of promotional advertising in all magazines, but for 83% of promotional advertising in youth magazines during the study period. CONCLUSIONS: In their magazine advertising, cigarette companies are preferentially exposing young people to advertisements that contain sales promotional features.  (+info)

(6/764) Sharing the blame: smoking experimentation and future smoking-attributable mortality due to Joe Camel and Marlboro advertising and promotions.

BACKGROUND: Despite public denials, internal tobacco company documents indicate that adolescents have long been the target of cigarette advertising and promotional activities. Recent longitudinal evidence suggests that 34% of new experimentation occurs because of advertising and promotions. OBJECTIVE: To apportion responsibility for smoking experimentation and future smoking-attributable mortality among major cigarette brands attractive to young people (Camel and Marlboro). DATA SOURCES, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: Data were from confirmed never-smoking adolescents (12-17 years old) responding to the 1993 (n = 2659) and 1996 (n = 2779) population-based California Tobacco Surveys. MAIN OUTCOMES: Adolescents named the brand of their favourite cigarette advertisements and tobacco promotional items. Using these "market shares" and the relative importance of advertising and promotions in encouraging smoking, we estimated how many new experimenters from 1988 to 1998 in the United States can be attributed to Camel and Marlboro. From other data on the natural history of smoking, we projected how many future deaths in the United States can be attributed to each brand. RESULTS: Although Camel advertisements were favoured more than Marlboro and other brands in 1993 and 1996, the "market share" for promotional items shifted markedly during this period from Camel and other brands towards Marlboro. We estimated that between 1988 and 1998, there will be 7.9 million new experimenters because of tobacco advertising and promotions. This will result in 4.7 million new established smokers: 2.1, 1.2, and 1.4 million due to Camel, Marlboro, and other brands' advertising and promotions, respectively. Of these, 1.2 million will eventually die from smoking-attributable diseases: 520,000 from Camel, 300,000 from Marlboro, and the remainder from other brands. CONCLUSIONS: Our analysis provides a reasonable first estimate at sharing the blame for the long-term health consequences of smoking among the major brands that encourage adolescents to start smoking.  (+info)

(7/764) Consensus for tobacco policy among former state legislators using the policy Delphi method.

OBJECTIVE: To test a novel approach for building consensus about tobacco control policies among legislators. DESIGN: A pilot study was conducted using a two-round, face-to-face policy Delphi method. PARTICIPANTS: Randomly selected sample of 30 former Kentucky legislators (60% participation rate). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Consensus on tobacco control and tobacco farming policies. RESULTS: Former state legislators were more supportive of tobacco control policies than expected, and highly supportive of lessening the state's dependence on tobacco. Former state legislators were in agreement with 43% of the second-round items for which there was no agreement at the first round, demonstrating a striking increase in consensus. With new information from their colleagues, former lawmakers became more supportive of workplace smoking restrictions, limitations on tobacco promotional items, and modest excise tax increases. CONCLUSIONS: The policy Delphi method has the potential for building consensus for tobacco control and tobacco farming policies among state legislators. Tobacco control advocates in other states might consider using the policy Delphi method with policymakers in public and private sectors.  (+info)

(8/764) Arizona's tobacco control initiative illustrates the need for continuing oversight by tobacco control advocates.

BACKGROUND: In 1994, Arizona voters approved Proposition 200 which increased the tobacco tax and earmarked 23% of the new revenues for tobacco education programmes. OBJECTIVE: To describe the campaign to pass Proposition 200, the legislative debate that followed the passage of the initiative, and the development and implementation of the tobacco control programme. DESIGN: This is a case study. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews with key players in the initiative campaign and in the tobacco education programme, and written records (campaign material, newspapers, memoranda, public records). RESULTS: Despite opposition from the tobacco industry, Arizonans approved an increase in the tobacco tax. At the legislature, health advocates in Arizona successfully fought the tobacco industry attempts to divert the health education funds and pass preemptive legislation. The executive branch limited the scope of the programme to adolescents and pregnant women. It also prevented the programme from attacking the tobacco industry or focusing on secondhand smoke. Health advocates did not put enough pressure at the executive branch to force it to develop a comprehensive tobacco education programme. CONCLUSIONS: It is not enough for health advocates to campaign for an increase in tobacco tax and to protect the funds at the legislature. Tobacco control advocates must closely monitor the development and implementation of tax-funded tobacco education programmes at the administrative level and be willing to press the executive to implement effective programmes.  (+info)


What Do The Tobacco Industry Think Of Non-Smokers?


I was wondering, because people who don't smoke obviously don't give the tobacco industry money for their product, so what do you think the tobacco industry think about non-smokers? Thanks.
----------

Non-customers. For every product in the world there are people who use it and people who don't


Should government regulate the fast food industry to protect the health of Americans?


Why is it acceptable to regulate the tobacco industry, yet there is little to no oversight for McDonalds?Would it be fair and reasonable to tax the Big Mac or Chil Fil'A Chicken Sandwhich?
----------

No they shouldn't. 


I don't want the government telling me what I can or cannot eat. It should be each persons decision what they want to eat. Eating a Big Mac once a month in my opinion is not bad for your health.


What is the vegan take on tobacco products?


Are there any actions in the fine tobacco product industry that we should be aware of?
It seems harmless enough, but with those vegans, you'd be surprised...Some of the flavorings for the small percentage of tobacco products that are flavored might be of some concern, maybe?
----------

Vegans are generally health freaks and so would not smoke. There's probably all kind of chemicals in tobacco that aren't vegan so I guess the best bet for a vegan if they want to smoke would be to buy the tobacco and roll the cigarettes themselves. Or they could grow their own tobacco. But you would think a vegan would have enough common sense not to smoke. I'm VEGETARIAN and I don't smoke, and never have. It's a bad habit that damages your lungs and eats up your cash and causes cancer and other diseases.


Is it time for a Law Class Action Law Suit on the Food Industry?


There was a major lawsuit against the tobacco industry for adding addictive junk, making it attractive to youngsters and literally destroying the lives of millions.

So what is so different about our food industry?

It adds addictive substances it entices youth to eat unhealthy foods.  It places known carcinogens in the foods such as sugar and MSG.  It’s advertising persuades thousands to overeat and become disabled.  It manufactures the food in unhealthy ways such as frying rather than baking. It contributes to the high rate of heart attacks and cholesterol. Its advertising and marketing makes it almost imposable to parent children and direct their eating to more healthy foods. ETC., ETC.

Since it is so market driven, It causes difficulties in finding healthy food. When you finally do you have to pay outrageous prices at health food stores.

If there is some attorneys out there that wants to pursue this I am a willing client.
----------

It makes total sense to me...

Count me in on the suit. I feel the food industry has gone way overboard and needs to be straightened out..

AND we need compensation for the damage they have done.


If Marijuana was Legalized, Would you Drink Less Alcohol?


The beer industry gives large amounts of money to anti-marijuana initiatives to keep marijuana illegal just as the tobacco industry does the same. They are in fear that, with legal cannabis (weed) you might not smoke cigarettes or use as much alcohol. 

What say you?
----------

I would probably do it the same amount. Weed is awesome but so is booze. Both equal a good time.


Why do cigarettes have a lot of deadly chemicals in them when people are only addicted to the nicotine?


whats the point of all of them? do the Tobacco Industries
WANT to kill people??
----------

the chemicals "condition" the tobacco so that it packages easily, stays fresh longer and burns at just the right pace.  the tobacco companies want to make money...  they are aware of the health risks of tobacco, but they feel the decision to smoke should be left up to the individual and not the government.  they will continue to make cigarettes as long as they are legal.


What is the effect of tobacco?


What are the effects of the tobacco industry in the third world countries?
----------

Well, tobacco industry has made millions of cigars every day. People blamed tobacco industry for deaths of people who used to smoke the cigar brand (eg: Marlboro,etc.). Not only that, but people also complaint about the price of the cigars(expensive).


Are ITV getting funds from the tobacco industry for blatant product placement on Coronation St?


Every episode it happens. Every other scene is someone sparking up a cigarette. It in no way reflects real life considering the length of each show and the proportion of which is dedicated to this life threatening habit. Even some of the actors clearly do not smoke in real life. So I can only assume that ITV are getting some kind of funds from the tobacco companies, what do you think?
----------

Interesting. Not spotted that but I don't watch it very often! Do they actually show a brand?
