Tobacco News

Tobacco products remain the #1 preventable cause of death both in the U.S. and worldwide. And when our global society has been battling the deadly coronavirus for more than a year, anything more deadly than COVID-19 is a huge deal. We’ve collectively made massive personal, professional, social, and financial sacrifices to join forces and combat COVID-19. It’s time we also unite and re-commit ourselves to ending the man-made tobacco epidemic.

With your help, ASH can do just that. We fight back against the tobacco industry on every front. It’s grueling work, but that’s the only way to work ourselves out of a job when we end the tobacco epidemic. Please consider making a donation today to continue our work.
