What's Menthol Got to Do with It? Everything

Central East ATTC

09/18/2018

Brief Technical Assistance: This webinar will discuss that historically, and continuing today, menthol products have been predatorily marketed to marginalized groups and most conspicuously to African Americans. * The results of predatory marketing has led to 85% of adults and 94% of teen African American smokers to smoke menthol cigarettes * Black folks die disproportionately from tobacco-related diseases compared to other race and ethnic groups * Menthol isn't deadly itself, but it allows the poison to go down easier! * The fight to restrict the sale of these products is picking up steam with San Francisco adopting a city-wide ban on selling menthol and all flavored tobacco products. * It is important for all tobacco control and health advocates to take up this issue and lend a voice against the social injustice being done.
