Tobacco firms used the fight against HIV/AIDS as a smokescreen to hinder tobacco control efforts in developing countries, researchers have revealed.. Big tobacco companies lobbied for funding and initiatives to combat AIDS to distract from the health problems caused by smoking and prevent regulations restricting tobacco use, a paper says.. "In both Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa, Philip Morris and British American Tobacco championed the AIDS response in order to delegitimize efforts to develop the World Health Organizations Framework Convention on Tobacco Control," says the paper published in the Journal of Social Aspects of HIV/AIDS on 29 March. The convention was eventually adopted in 2003.. "Transnational tobacco companies aimed to generate competition between the two health issues for resources and policy attention to protect their interests from stronger regulation," the authors ...

The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is an influential, under-the-radar organization that facilitates collaboration between many of the most powerful corporations in America and state-level legislative representatives. Elected officials then introduce legislation approved by corporations in state houses across the U.S., without disclosing that the bills were pre-approved by corporations on ALEC task forces. ALEC has had a long relationship with the tobacco industry. To explore this relationship, we studied publicly-available tobacco industry documents found in the Legacy Tobacco Documents Library (LTDL), an electronic archive created by the University of California San Francisco that contains 70+ million pages of previously-secret, internal tobacco industry documents obtained in the discovery phases of the 46 state attorneys general lawsuits against the tobacco ...

Corporate Social Responsibility can bring real business benefits by reducing risk, by enhancing brand value, by opening doors and creating good will, and by improving staff efficiency and morale. Nevertheless, there remains a protracted debate about the legitimacy and value of corporate responses to CSR concerns. Knowledge about the effect of Corporate Social Responsibility on corporate financial performance contributes to the debate about whether managers systematically miss profit opportunities if they decide against it. There are different views about a firms role in society and disagreements as to whether wealth maximization should be the sole goal of a corporation. Using extensive data over a time period, this study will explore and test the sign of the relationship between corporate social responsibility and financial performance. More specifically, the purpose of this study is to examine whether Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) announcements or events, have any effect on a firms ...

Background: Tobacco industry documents provide a unique opportunity to explore the role transnational corporations (TNCs) played in shaping the poor outcomes of privatisation in the former Soviet Union (FSU). This paper examines British American Tobaccos (BATs) business conduct in Uzbekistan where large-scale smuggling of BATs cigarettes, BATs reversal of tobacco control legislation and its human rights abuses of tobacco farmers have been documented previously. This paper focuses, instead, on BATs attitude to competition, compares BATs conduct with international standards and assesses its influence on the privatisation process.. Methods: Analysis of BAT documents released through litigation.. Results: BAT secured sole negotiator status precluding the Uzbekistan government from initiating discussions with other parties. Recognising that a competitive tender would greatly increase the cost of investment, BAT ...
Downloadable! The 1998 Master Settlement Agreement resolved the unprecedented litigation in which the states sought to recoup the cigarette-related Medicaid costs. The litigation was settled through a combination of negotiated regulatory requirements and financial payments of about $250 billion over 25 years. Settlement payments received by states are strongly related to smoking-related medical costs but are also related to political factors. The payments largely took the form of an excise tax equivalent, raising potential antitrust concerns. The regulatory restrictions imposed by the agreement also raised antitrust concerns. However, there has been no evident shift in industry concentration. The increase in advertising and marketing expenses has largely taken the form of price discounts. The settlement sidestepped the usual procedures pertaining to the imposition of taxes and the promulgation of new regulations.

The article considers the problems of corporate social responsibility in the Republic of Kazakhstan. There are certain preconditions created for formation of corporate responsibility of businesses in the country: regulatory and legislative institutions, public-private partnership are being developed. However, involvement of the business into the social-targeted projects is not significant yet. Corporate social responsibility is only on its way to become a systemic phenomenon of the Kazakhstans society and culture. Zharkynbayeva, Roza
The mission of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) is to lead the nation in bringing the power of science to bear on drug abuse and addiction.

Still, that didnt stop me from smoking, although I wish it would have. Our good friend Dr. Siegel posted a blog explaining five reasons why the tobacco industry could offer some serious aid to electronic cigarettes.. 1.) More Resources- These resources will lead to greater exposure for electronic cigarettes. Electronic Cigarette companies dont really have the resources at this point to orchestrate a national informational campaign. A remarkable number of people still dont understand e-cigs, nor do they know the differences between them. Tobacco companies have the resources and know how to get people talking, its already happening with the recent announcements of Vuse and MarkTen.. 2.) More Studies- Considering the incredible amount of studies sponsored by the industry for regular cigarettes, we can only expect the same for the electronic version. Imagine how awesome it would ...
The majority of the worlds 1.3 billion tobacco users are men, but female use is increasing (1,2). To examine differences in tobacco use and awareness of tobacco marketing by sex, CDC and health officials in Bangladesh, Thailand, and Uruguay (among the first countries to report results) analyzed 2009 data from a newly instituted survey, the Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS). This report summarizes the results of that analysis, which indicated wide variation among the three countries in tobacco use, product types used, and marketing awareness among males and females. In Bangladesh and Thailand, use of smoked tobacco products was far greater among males (44.7% and 45.6%, respectively) than females (1.5% and 3.1%, respectively). In Uruguay, the difference was smaller (30.7% versus 19.8%). Use of smokeless tobacco products in Bangladesh was approximately the same among males (26.4%) and females ...
17 April 2012 TORONTO - The Heart and Stroke Foundation and the Canadian Cancer Society, Ontario Division applaud the introduction of legislation to eliminate the sale of flavoured tobacco products.. Ontario health agencies welcome the introduction of legislation to eliminate the sale of flavoured tobacco products designed to attract young smokers. The Private Members Bill, introduced today by Nickel Belt MPP France Gélinas, will strengthen existing regulations in the Smoke-Free Ontario Act that will further serve to eliminate the marketing of flavoured tobacco products, and prevent new tobacco products from entering the market. "The tobacco industry has found a new way to target our youth and we are grateful to Ms. Gélinas for proposing legislation that strengthens Ontarios tobacco laws and protects our young people from dangerous flavoured and new tobacco products," said ...
Involuntary (or passive) smoking is the exposure to second-hand tobacco smoke (SHS) which is a mixture of exhaled mainstream smoke and side stream smoke released from a smouldering cigarette or other smoking device (cigar, pipe, bidi, etc.) and diluted with ambient air. Second-hand tobacco smoke is also referred to as "environmental" tobacco smoke (ETS). Involuntary smoking involves inhaling carcinogens and other toxic components that are present in second-hand tobacco smoke.. Article 8 of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, adopted by all WHO Member States in May 2003, reads:. ...

Tuesday, July 7, 2015. The World Health Organisation has urged governments around the world to increase taxes on cigarettes and other tobacco products to save lives. Tobacco kills approximately 60 lakh people annually, 20% of them live in the South-East Asia region, including India. The region also accounts for 25% of the worlds smokers and almost 90% of smokeless tobacco users. Dr Poonam Khetrapal Singh, regional director, WHO South-East Asia Region, on Tuesday said stronger initiatives and focused cessation efforts were required. "Improved tax measures, stronger law enforcement and enhanced cessation efforts are urgently needed in the region to protect people against the ill-effects of tobacco which continues to be a major public health issue," she said. WHO released a report on the Global Tobacco Epidemic, 2015, on Tuesday. Recent estimates show that there are about 24.6 crore smokers and 29 crore ...
Some studies (Torelli, 2012) show that communicating about the self-transcendent values of CSR, and simultaneously, communicating about the self-enhancing luxury brand values, creates a motivational conflict in consumers minds. This leads to a feeling of disfluency, and in many occasions, decreased brand evaluations. Since the importance of CSR is constantly increasing, also in the luxury industry, my research aims to find out if combining these two brand concepts is possible. I am also interested in finding factors that help self-enhancement luxury brands to engage in CSR in a credible way. I am examining this phenomenon with a case, a jewelry company Tiffany & Co. During the past 18 years, they have made significant CSR improvements, and aimed to lead the industry into a more sustainable future. In my research, I want to find out how this luxury brand endeavor to become a CSR brand is portrait in the media. I present 33 news articles on Tiffanys CSR activities from the New ...
At a news conference at a Staples store in Columbia, S.C., Mitt Romney got into an argument with an Associated Press reporter over his ties to lobbyists. I dont have lobbyists running my campaign, said Romney. AP reporter Glen Johnson challenged the statement and noted that one of Romneys top advisers is Ron Kaufman, a prominent Washington lobbyist. But Romney insisted that neither Kaufman nor any other lobbyists were running his campaign because they were not paid for their work. Ron is a wonderful friend and adviser. Hes not paid. Hes an adviser, like many others. But I do not ...

The Tobacco Free Project of the San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFTFP) is one of the local lead agencies (LLAs) designated by the California State legislature through the California Department of Health, Tobacco Control Section, to create tobacco education programs and receive Proposition 99 educational moneys. Proposition 99 was a California statewide referendum passed in 1988 that raised the excise tax on tobacco sales, adding an additional 25-cent tax on each package of cigarettes and a proportional tax increase on other tobacco products. This tax raised Californias tobacco tax to be among the highest in the United States, and designated that a portion of the tax moneys would go for anti-tobacco health education projects. As an LLA, SFTFP coordinates local tobacco education activities. It serves as an oversight and regranting agency, ...

Lobbyists already chafing under the Obama administrations lobbying restrictions and congressional ethics rules could soon have a brand new headache: a nascent grass-roots movement thats placed reining in lobbyists at its center.. Spearheaded by a coalition of campaign finance experts and activists called Represent.Us, the campaign is working to build grass-roots support for a measure that would drastically limit lobbyist fundraising, among other provisions. Dubbed the American Anti-Corruption Act, the plan would also curb unrestricted super PACs and make it harder for such groups to coordinate with candidates.. "Its the boldest package of reform that weve seen maybe in a century that would change how Washington would work," said Lawrence Lessig, a professor at Harvard Law School and founder of the anti-corruption group Rootstrikers. Lessig and other Represent.Us organizers say their goal is to build public pressure outside the Beltway before taking their plan to Capitol Hill.. "The view is ...
Research published today by Irelands Office for Tobacco Control [1] shows that children still have a high chance of purchasing cigarettes from shops or via vending machines and are subjected to tobacco marketing in most retail outlets. The study found that two in five shop retailers and two in three licensed premises were willing to sell cigarettes to children aged under 18 years of age.. In licensed premises, 63% of minors were not prevented from buying cigarettes from a vending machine. This was almost identical to the 2007 finding of 64%.. The influence of tobacco marketing on children is particularly strong in Ireland where 80% of child smokers smoke just two brands - those that are the most heavily marketed through in-store displays.. The Irish survey found that 89% of stores surveyed had some form of tobacco advertising on display and 40% of stores had confectionery displayed beside ...

Hartford - The Distilled Spirits Council today urged the members of the Connecticut Joint Committee on Revenue, Finance and Bonding to consider repealing Connecticuts Sunday alcohol sales ban as a revenue-raising alternative to the Governor M. Jodi Rells proposal to raise hospitality taxes. "A tax on alcohol is a tax on Connecticuts hospitality industry," said David Wojnar, Vice President of the Distilled Spirits Council, who will testify at todays hearing on the tax increase. "Restaurants, hotels, liquor stores and workers who depend on them will pay the price for this increase in hospitality taxes." The consumer and business-friendly solution is to allow Sunday alcohol sales. "This approach repeals Connecticuts Prohibition-era Blue Law while bringing the state as much or more revenue," Wojnar stated. "It gives consumers much greater convenience and stops the flood tide of revenue-draining cross-border sales." The passage of Sunday alcohol sales in Connecticut could generate $6.7 million ...
In May 2016, the Committee on Financial and Economic Cooperation of the GCC states amended the specific excise tax on tobacco products, making it equivalent to twice the current minimum applied on all tobacco products and its derivatives, starting 1 September 2016.37. Despite what appears as "high duty rates" (100% of the CIF), custom duties when measured as a percentage of the retail price (PRP), are in fact very low and account for just (22%) of the retail price. Even after the new excise tax was imposed in September 2016, the proportion of tax/pack was 44% of the PRP (if pack price did not increase) and lower than 44% if the tobacco industry decides to increase the pack price. The WHO recommends taxes to be no less than 70% of the retail price.38. There are several obstacles to raising custom duties on tobacco products in Oman. Multilateral and bilateral trade agreements constrain Oman as well as other GCC countries from ...

René A. Arrazola, MPH1, Linda J. Neff, PhD1, Sara M. Kennedy, MPH2, Enver Holder-Hayes, MPH3, Christopher D. Jones, PhD1 (Author affiliations at end of text). Tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of disease and death in the United States, and nearly all tobacco use begins during youth and young adulthood (1,2). Among U.S. youths, cigarette smoking has declined in recent years; however, the use of some other tobacco products has increased (3), and nearly half of tobacco users use two or more tobacco products (4). CDC analyzed data from the 2013 National Youth Tobacco Survey* to determine the prevalence of ever (at least once) and current (at least 1 day in the past 30 days) use of one or more of 10 tobacco products (cigarettes, cigars, hookahs, smokeless tobacco, electronic cigarettes ...

For years, the government has denied that depleted uranium (DU), a radioactive toxic waste left over from nuclear fission and added to munitions used in the Persian Gulf and Iraq wars, poisoned Iraqi civilians and veterans.. But a little-known 1993 Defense Department document written by then-Brigadier Gen. Eric Shinseki, now the secretary for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), shows that the Pentagon was concerned about DU contamination and the agency had ordered medical testing on all personnel that were exposed to the toxic substance.. Shinsekis memo, under the subject line, Review of Draft to Congress - Health and Environmental Consequences of Depleted Uranium in the U.S. Army -- Action Memorandum, makes some small revisions to the details of these three orders from the DoD:. 1. Provide adequate training for personnel who may come in contact with DU contaminated equipment.. 2. Complete medical testing of all personnel exposed to DU in the Persian Gulf War.. 3. Develop a plan for DU ...

Several studies have examined the effects of state cigarette tax increases on youth substance use over the 1990s, with most -- but not all -- finding that higher taxes reduce youth consumption of tobacco. We advance the literature by using data from the 1991-2005 waves of the national Youth Risk Behavior Surveys (YRBS), providing information on over 100,000 high school age youths. We also are the first to make use of hundreds of independently fielded state and local versions of the YRBS, reflecting data from over 750,000 youths. Importantly, these data are to our knowledge the only sources of relevant information on youth smoking that were explicitly designed to be representative of the sampled state or locality. We estimate two-way fixed effects models of the effect of state cigarette taxes on youth smoking, controlling for survey demographics and area and year fixed effects. Our most consistent finding is that -- contrary to some recent research -- the ...
Obama: Well, the fact is I dont take PAC money and I dont take lobbyists money. And the bundlers previously, Obamas policy is an ethical tightrope.. The senators official policy "specifically states that the Obama campaign does not accept donations or fundraising help from federal lobbyists or PACs," according to a campaign spokesperson. Obama, however, is sticking to a strict interpretation of his ban on lobbyist contributions. His campaign does take money from spouses of lobbyists, partners in lobbying firms who do not themselves lobby, ex-lobbyists and state lobbyists, according to numerous news reports.. Robert Wolf, COO of the Switzerland-based UBS Investment Bank and chairman of its Americas division, has raised money for Obama and encouraged his employees to make contributions, which they did, to the tune of $194,930 as of July 15. Those contributions dont violate the letter of Obamas pledge, even though UBS, like most large corporations, has lobbyists in Washington. Obama ...

Professor (Dr) Rama Kant, WHO Director-Generals Awardee said that pictorial warnings on all tobacco products are more effective than text-only warnings, especially in countries like India with several languages and widespread illiteracy. He appealed to Government of India to go a step further from pictorial warnings to plain packaging of tobacco products. Professor (Dr) Rama Kant said that plain packaging aims to reduce the attractiveness and appeal of tobacco products, increase the noticeability and effectiveness of mandated health warnings, and reduce the ability of retail packaging to mislead consumers about the harms of smoking. Australia and Ireland are two countries that have already moved to compulsory plain packaging of all tobacco products to reduce tobacco use and also the rates of major killer non-communicable diseases, disabilities and deaths attributed to tobacco use ...

Industrial growth in China and technological progress is driving the global chemicals industry, states a new report by industry research firm GBI Research.. The new report studies acetic acid, an important chemical with applications in several downstream industries like textiles, food processing and several other industrial chemical processes.

The Nursing Global Health Professions Student Survey (GHPSS) has been conducted in schools in 39 countries and the Gaza Strip/West Bank (identified as "sites" for the remainder of this paper). In half the sites, over 20% of the students currently smoked cigarettes, with males having higher rates than females in 22 sites. Over 60% of students reported having been exposed to secondhand smoke in public places in 23 of 39 sites. The majority of students recognized that they are role models in society, believed they should receive training on counseling patients to quit using tobacco, but few reported receiving any formal training. Tobacco control efforts must discourage tobacco use among health professionals, promote smoke free workplaces, and implement programs that train health professionals in effective cessation-counseling techniques ...
This article derives the optimal award to a winning plaintiff and the optimal penalty on a losing plaintiff when the probability of prevailing varies among plaintiffs. Optimality is defined in terms of achieving a specified degree of deterrence of potential injurers with the lowest litigation cost. Our main result is that the optimal penalty on a losing plaintiff is positive, in contrast to common practice in the United States. By penalizing losing plaintiffs and raising the award to winning plaintiffs (relative to what it would be if losing plaintiffs were not penalized), it is possible to discourage relatively low-probability-of-prevailing plaintiffs from suing without discouraging relatively high-probability plaintiffs, and thereby to achieve the desired degee of deterrence with lower litigation costs. This result is developed first in a model in which all suits are assumed to go to trial and then in a model in which settlements are possible. ...

Myers et al. also claim that "Tobacco use is the number one preventable cause of death in the United States." This is grossly misleading, as it combines smokings dramatic fatality figures with the far more benign use of smokeless tobacco (2). For example, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that over 400,000 Americans die every year from smoking-attributable diseases (3), but the comparable number attributed to smokeless tobacco use is so low that the CDC has never attempted to provide an estimate. American Cancer Society Vice President Emeritus Michael J. Thun participated in a 2004 study concluding that "…smokeless tobacco products pose a substantially lower risk to the user than do conventional cigarettes. This finding raises ethical questions concerning whether it is inappropriate and misleading for government officials or public health experts to characterize smokeless ...

Were encouraged by the continued decline in youth tobacco use in Minnesota," said Minnesota Commissioner of Health Dr. Sanne Magnan. "Many local public health departments, tobacco prevention organizations and other partners contributed to this decline. We have more work to do, however, because tobacco use remains the single most preventable cause of death in this country.". The new Freedom to Breathe Act is likely helping to discourage youth tobacco use, according to Dr. Jane Korn, a chronic disease epidemiologist with MDH. "Smoke-free laws create a positive example for young people and lead to decreased smoking," said Korn. She noted that nearly 90 percent of the middle school students surveyed believe that smoking should never be allowed inside their homes, their vehicles, at workplaces and in indoor public places. Support among high school students ranges from 71 percent for vehicles to 81 percent for indoor public ...

Business Action to Stop Counterfeiting and Piracy (BASCAP) is an initiative of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC).. "Counterfeiting and piracy continue to be a major problem both in the UK and the rest of the world, and plain packaging of any product will make it easier for fakes to enter the marketplace," said BASCAP Director Jeffrey Hardy. "Tobacco products are already a target for the organized crime syndicates making fake cigarettes, and any policies that strip away trademarks will make it more difficult and costly for UK law enforcement officers to fight against these criminals.". BASCAP provided its views in response to the UK Department of Healths open consultation on standardized packaging of tobacco products, and concentrated on the extenuating negative impacts of standardized packaging on intellectual property (IP) rights, counterfeiting and the risks to other industries from such a precedent-setting intervention by the government into IP ...
During basic military training, there is a total tobacco ban…and the prohibition is strictly enforced. At the beginning of basic military training, airmen are searched and all tobacco products are confiscated. Tobacco products are considered contraband along with alcohol, drugs, weapons, and chewing gum. The airmen recruits are required to maintain a money list (i.e., a list of all serial numbers for all their money), which is checked regularly by basic military training instructors. Airmen are under constant supervision, and there are no tobacco products accessible even during those rare occasions when airmen are not supervised. An honor code is established early in basic training so that if a recruit breaks the rules, fellow airmen are duty bound to report the infraction. Finally, the punishment for tobacco use during basic military training is severe. In virtually all cases, the airman is recycled (forced to repeat some ...
