P4-Greed, smoke and lung health
*Please scroll down for more information*
The adverse impact of natural disasters, practices such as deforestation and agricultural burning and man-made products such as tobacco and nicotine on environmental determinants of health, such as clean air, cannot be ignored.  And yet, industries profiting from these practices and products continue business as usual with minimal consideration of these problems.  “Reduced Risk Products” are presented as safer alternatives to cigarettes. Ineffective and insufficient methods to mitigate climate crisis are proposed – delaying meaningful action.  The fight for lung health must include addressing these major contributors to lung health issues in an effective manner, to protect the health of all people, in particular the most vulnerable.
