|As I began skimming through my latest issue of Good Housekeeping, a one-column piece on page 83 of the March 2009 issue caught my eye. It was about three new products developed by R. J. Reynolds as alternatives to smoking.|
From Good Housekeeping
R. J. Reynolds promotes itself as principled, creative, dynamic and passionate. Frankly, I don't get it.
Camel Orbs aren't the only dissolvable tobacco product in this new line, each of which includes a warning that THIS PRODUCT MAY CAUSE MOUTH CANCER. There's also Camel Sticks and Strips. Even though all these products are hazardous to health, they should help Big Tobacco continue to earn $$$. Creative indeed!
My main concern does not have to do with adults who have been smokers for years. I am a former, now reformed, smoker myself. But can't you just picture how easy it will be for kids to use these products in secret instead of smoking or having to spit like chewing tobacco requires.
Various organizations are concerned, like I am, about kids never taking up the addictive tobacco habit in any form.
