New FDA tobacco regulations regarding “light/low/mild” cigarettes take effect on July 22, 2010.
CDC Web page provides a helpful summary of new FDA tobacco regulations and the potential public health impact, particularly for smokers of “light,” “low,” or “mild” cigarettes. The Web page also provides links to a full feature article and other helpful resources.
A CDC button—“No Such Thing”—is also available to help share the public health message about “light,” “low,” and “mild” cigarette labels. The button is a graphic element that can be placed on Web sites, and, when clicked, will take users to CDC Web pages containing tobacco-related information.
