Effective media outreach campaigns spread the tobacco-free messages to audiences from young people to smokers to those concerned about secondhand smoke.

Reducing tobacco use is a major public health issue, if for no other reason than that there's so much solid research on how harmful secondhand smoke is. It contains more than 7,000 chemicals, and 69 of them are known to cause cancer.
