The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is launching hard-hitting ads for its 2014 "Tips From Former Smokers" campaign. Beginning July 7, these ads will run nationwide for nine weeks on television, radio, billboards and online, as well as in theaters, magazines and newspapers. The launch of these ads comes as CDC is also releasing new data on how many U.S. adults use some form of tobacco.
The Tips national tobacco education campaign has helped hundreds of thousands of smokers quit since it began in 2012. This year, Tips returns with new ad participants living with the devastating effects of smoking-related diseases.
For more about the campaign and other tobacco-related information, please visit the CDC's website.
By a wide 65 percent to 35 percent margin, online voters registered their support for community water fluoridation in a poll that appeared in June's "Costco Connection." Accompanying the monthly magazine's poll was an article featuring arguments both for and against fluoridation. Dr. Howard Pollick, a member of the ADA National Fluoridation Advisory Committee, authored the "pro" portion of the debate, explaining how fluoridated water helps decrease tooth decay and reduce dental costs. Thank you to everyone who took the time to participate and support fluoridation, which is one of the eight initiatives comprising the Action for Dental Health.
