The Use of Language to Normalize and Legitimize the tobacco epidemic

Posted by pamela mccoll on Friday, October 26, 2012,
“Neglecting to discuss the industry’s role as the disease
vector in the tobacco epidemic is like refusing to discuss
the role of mosquitoes in a malaria epidemic or rats
in an outbreak of bubonic plague. From a public health
perspective, it is imperative to go to the source
of the problem.”
Dr.Rob Cushman,MD, FRCPC
Medical Officer of Health,Ottawa


Anti - is a word that the tobacco industry relishes as it links their critics with prohibitionists. 
Pro a Smoke free generation.

IGNITE A CONVERSATION AROUND SMOKING PREVENTION

Posted by pamela mccoll on Wednesday, September 5, 2012,
I noticed in the news today that Kentucky is gearing up to further smoke- free legislation in 2013. It has been my
direction for some time to put energies into getting kids to not start. Einstein said it is easier to get started in anything than it is to get oneself out of anything.... I don't know the exact quote but you get the idea. Addiction can be a tricky concept to explain to an adult let alone a child but this is the conversation we need to develop in our social cure to tobacco use.

Spent Easter Saturday morning checking out this site out of Australia. Love their graphics and hope they take a look at Twas as it is going to be available worldwide as Atlas has reps everywhere. I would like to write a guest blog on their site and hopefully someone will review it and help get the word out there about the loss of the pipe.  I had a call from Merry Makers yesterday and the reindeer toy sample is flying here for Monday. Then it will take months to get the little character made ...
