Uncover the Truth About These Organizations

The tobacco industry is the single greatest barrier to reducing deaths caused by tobacco use. To keep selling its products it needs to make sure tobacco control policies don’t come into effect or are rendered ineffective.  

Some tobacco industry allies are easy to spot, such as tobacco trade associations or public relations firms working for tobacco companies.  But the industry also disguises its operations using seemingly independent organizations.
