What is the FDA doing to protect children from tobacco?
Each day in the United States 3,800 kids less than 18 years of age smoke their first cigarette, and an estimated 1,000 kids become daily cigarette smokers. Many of these kids will become addicted before they are old enough to understand the risks and will ultimately die too young of tobacco-related diseases. FDA is working to protect the health of America’s children and ultimately reduce the burden of illness and death caused by tobacco use.
