FDA Commissioner -50th Anniversary of S G Report on Smoking

If smoking persists at the current rate among young adults in this country, 5.6 million of today’s Americans under 18 are projected to die prematurely from a smoking-related illness. Some of the highest smoking prevalence rates are now among persons of lower socioeconomic status, including racial and ethnic minority groups and gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals.
