“For years, we’ve known the dangers of smoking cigarettes and the health hazards associated with tobacco. A warning of these effects is even printed on every pack. But some people still choose to inhale.

The animals these cigarettes are tested on don’t have a choice.

In an attempt to dispute the thoroughly proven notion that cigarettes are harmful to one’s health, the tobacco industry forces beagle puppies and other animals to breathe in this noxious poison. The pups are hooked up to a gas mask-like device then pumped full of smoke for upwards of ten hours a day. When the labs are done with these “test subjects”, they are killed and their organs studied for the impacts of the smoke.

The tobacco industry uses puppies as pawns in the struggle to redeem cigarettes. Fight this atrocious injustice: Tell Big Tobacco to stop testing on animals.

Please spend the two minutes it takes to fill it out and send it in to the people who allow these things to happen.

The more they hear about this, the better.  Please spread the word. 

Additionally, please consider who and what you are supporting every time you buy a pack of cigarettes. 
 

I’m honestly not sure what the most direct way to send this to correct people at the FDA would be, but I think the closest I can find for now is this: TobaccoIndustryQuestions@fda.hhs.gov
