secrets of the tobacco industry
In 1994, United States Congressman Harry Waxman held a famous series of Congressional hearings. The presidents and CEOs of the seven largest American tobacco companies were subpoenaed to testify before Waxman's committee. On April 14, 1994, after more than six hours of sharp questioning by members of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health and the Environment, the seven CEOs steadfastly refused to budge under stringent questioning that they knew cigarettes were addictive. Each stated under oath that they did not believe nicotine was addictive. Within months, a perjury investigation was initiated by the Department of Justice. Ultimately, the Department of Justice claimed it did not have enough evidence to prosecute for perjury because the CEOs testified under oath that they b...

Gaza smokers say the costs of cigarettes and tobacco have increased by more than 200 percent - since Egypt launched a campaign against militants in northern Sinai. Egyptian troops have begun demolishing homes along the country's border with the Gaza Strip, as they seek to close hundreds of smuggling tunnels. A dramatic explosion carried out by the Egyptian army destroys this two storey house in the area of the Rafah border. The demolition campaign began after an October assault on a checkpoint near Rafah killed 31 soldiers, the deadliest attack on Egypt's army in modern history. There has been no claim of responsibility yet for the attack. Palestinians had been using tunnels to smuggle many kinds of goods especially cigarettes and tobacco. But now - amid the army operation - pric...

"An international rights group is pushing the federal government and the tobacco industry to take further steps to protect children working on U.S. tobacco farms. A report released Wednesday by Human Rights Watch claims that children as young as 7 are sometimes working long hours in fields harvesting nicotine- and pesticide-laced tobacco leaves under sometimes hazardous conditions. Most of what the group documented is legal, but it wants cigarette makers to push for safety on farms from which they buy tobacco. Human Rights Watch details findings from interviews with more than 140 children working on farms in North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia, where a majority of the country's tobacco is grown."* The Young Turks hosts Ana Kasparian and John Iadarola (TYT University) break i...

Tuesday night, a sea of blue shirts packed the Robbinsdale City Council chambers. Their goal was to state their case as to why Robbinsdale should make changes regarding tobacco sales, such as limiting flavored tobacco products to adult only shops, setting a minimum price for cigars, and raising the sales age from 18 to 21. "Every time I walked into the stores, I would be shocked by the huge displays of cheap, candy-flavored tobacco products right at eye level," said Kate Richardson, a Robbinsdale resident. "I want my children to grow up free from the harms of tobacco," said Shawna Daun, a Robbinsdale resident. However, business owners had a different take on the proposed changes. "Over 65 percent of my sales daily, is tobacco," said the man who runs the BP gas station at 5900 42nd Ave N in...
