It’s funny, not “funny ha-ha” but “funny-odd,” that so many smokers still don’t fully understand what they’re inhaling into their body. Sure, everyone and their mother knows that smoking is dangerous and that it can (and likely will, eventually) kill you but according to a new study as many as half of smokers aren’t aware of what big tobacco do...

Chocolate, strawberry, vanilla, and blueberry – these words probably bring up a memory of the time when we would dress up in our scariest outfit and go door to door for Halloween in hopes of receiving a sweet treat. Even though sweet memories of stuffing your face with candy may come to mind, these flavors are also used in tobacco products. Tobacco companies are marketing and promoting...

Politics is a tricky business chock full of checks, balances, hidden agendas, favors and obligations. Nothing is ever quick or easy and everything, everything comes at a price. In what seems like an odd disagreement, lawmakers are standing up against the U.S. Navy because the military branch is attempting to make a healthy move.

E-cigs have been gaining popularity recently and it’s really no wonder. The products are marketed as a...
