STOP launch of PM's Virginia Slim "Super Slim" cigarettes:..

November 5, 2008 - Antismoking organizations (American Cancer Society Action Network, the American Heart Association, the American Lung Association, the American Medical Association and the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids) register their protests over Philip Morris USA’s plans to introduce a new Virginia Slims cigarette product with heightened appeal for young women.

Philip Morris USA has said it will launch new Virginia Slim “Super Slim” cigarette in the first quarter of 2009. The cigarette, in both light and ultra light flavors, is smaller in diameter than a standard cigarette and will come in a narrow pink rectangular box with squared ends. While the box will hold the standard 20 cigarettes, it will be slimmer than a standard pack and will apparently be marketed as a “Purse Pack”.

A joint statement of these health-advocacy non-profit agencies stated that “Philip Morris shows contempt for women and their health by putting a pink gloss on a product that causes lung cancer and heart disease, two of the leading killers of women.”

Admin please help me post this!
Finally I have been put out of my over 4 years of Illness. I am 58 and I suffered from cancer. I have seeked a cure to this for years from several doctors and even those that people referred to as the best but nothing positive was recorded and I and my family lost thousands of dollars in the process. But all thanks to Dr. Osojo whom is one of the honest few out there who was able to restore my healthy happiness with his medicine and methods of treatment, my family is so pleased with my new good health and I feel REBORN! For advise on his cure just reach him personally on DR.OSOJOHERBALCUREOFALLDISEASE@GMAIL.COM he treats many other diseases too. Today I can boldly say there is no problem without a solution just that we have not met with the solution.
