CDC Grand Rounds: Current Opportunities in Tobacco Control

April 30, 2010 / Vol. 59 / No. 16


MMWR Introduction

A new CDC report suggests that the regulation of tobacco products is a critical component of a comprehensive tobacco prevention and control strategy that will not replace, but further strengthen, tobacco control efforts. There is strong scientific evidence that outlines tobacco control policies and regulatory interventions that can help reduce tobacco use. The most effective policies include tobacco price increases, strong smoke-free policies, aggressive media campaigns, access to cessation services, comprehensive advertising bans, and graphic warning labels on tobacco products.
