What's NOT In A Cigarette? Tellin' The Truth On Tobacco Products

from Cleveland Museum of Natural History

Program image

Welcome to our great new game show, "What's NOT In A Cigarette?" Your
class will try and answer questions about the history of tobacco in the
US, including the weird additives, strange rules on advertising, and
ever-creative ways humans manage their nicotine addictions.  Drugs that are sold in pharmacies have lengthy labeling that details not only the active ingredients of the product, but also possible interactions between those ingredients and other drugs the purchaser might be using. Why are the labels on tobacco products so vague?
