The truth is, if tobacco were a deadly virus, we would invest millions in developing vaccines to prevent it or drugs to treat it. 

Instead, the world invests billions of dollars in rewarding an industry that destroys human health and causes untold suffering. Every dollar invested in a tobacco company is an investment in death and disease.”
