Tobacco companies must run ads telling the truth

Brianne Probasco

Starting on November 26, 2017, the major U.S. tobacco companies must begin running court-ordered television and newspaper ads that tell the American public the truth about the dangers of smoking and secondhand smoke. The ads -- called corrective statements -- will run in print and online in about 50 newspapers. They will also run for one year on the major television networks during prime time.

If you're someone who smokes, quitting is the single best thing you can do to improve your health. Just one year after quitting, the risk for heart attack drops sharply. Two to five years after quitting, the risk for stroke falls to about the same level as a non-smoker.
