Publication of Reducing the Health Consequences of Smoking: 25 Years of Progress

The Surgeon General's report, Reducing the Health Consequences of Smoking: 25 Years of Progress, was released on January 11, 1989, exactly 25 years after release of the first Srgeon General's report on smoking and health. The 1989 report provides a comprehensive review of developments related to smoking and health during the past quarter century, focusing on the following topics: advances in knowledge of the health effects of smoking; changes in smoking-attributable mortality; trends in public beliefs, attitudes, and opinions about smoking; changes in smoking behavior and knowledge about the determinants of smoking; smoking prevention, cessation and advocacy activities; smoking-control policies; and behavioral and health consequences of changes in the smoking-and-health environment.

A final indexed version of the report will be available for purchase from the Government Printing Office in several months. An executive summary of the report will be published as a supplement to the MMWR within 2 months. A limited supply of executive summaries is now available from the Office on Smoking and Health, CDC, 5600 Fishers Lane, Park Building, Room 1-16, Rockville, MD 20857; telephone (301) 443-1690.
