Smoking and Public Policy
Iglehart, John K.
New England Journal of Medicine. 1984 Feb 23; 310(8): 539-544.
Iglehart reviews federal smoking and tobacco policy and the status of legislation in Congress to strengthen the language of warning labels on cigarette packages and advertisements and to extend an excise tax on tobacco. He discusses the roles of the Department of Health and Human Services, the Surgeon General, both houses of Congress, the tobacco lobby, private health interests, and the American Medical Association in shaping public policy. He also comments on the controversy surrounding the AMA's stand on tobacco and smoking related legislation and health education, and on the federal government's dilemma in balancing health risks and economic concerns.
