To protect Americans from tobacco-related disease and death, the FDA provides information about tobacco products and the dangers they pose to the public.
Educating people, especially young people, about the risks of using tobacco products, is a critical part of the FDA’s public health mission. FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products offers many educational resources such as:
- Information on the health effects of tobacco use: Key facts on how smoking affects heart health, the consequences of smoking on your lungs and why nicotine makes all tobacco products so hard to quit.
- Award-winning public health education campaigns: Facts, data and key information on FDA’s efforts to reach intended audiences.
- How tobacco impacts our nation’s youth: Information about the FDA’s multiyear plan to reduce youth tobacco use in the US
- Free digital and print tobacco education materials: Posters, flyers, web content and other resources for parents, teachers and organizations.
