The Nightingales Nurses
We are a group of nurse activists who work to focus public
attention on the behavior of the tobacco industry and its contribution to the
preventable epidemic of tobacco-caused disease and death. The tobacco industry
spends more than $1 million an HOUR to suggest that cigarette smoking is cool,
glamorous, and fun. In contrast, we bear witness each day to the suffering and
devastation wreaked by tobacco on our patients and their loved ones. It is not
socially responsible for the tobacco industry to continue active marketing and
promotion of these deadly products.
If you agree
join us to take action against Big Tobacco.
Boycott magazines that advertise tobacco
products! Many popular magazines and publications advertize tobacco
and help to perpetuate the worldwide industrially produced epidemic.
Women's magazines, such as Glamour, advertise
tobacco products. Tobacco kills more than 1.5 million women each
year. Nurses ask women's magazines to stop advertising tobacco's
Take Action, BOYCOTT GLAMOUR,
until they agree to stop advertising tobacco. See
our letter to Glamour
magazine, asking them to refuse tobacco advertising.
The tobacco industry regards nurses as formidable opponents.
Since 2004, nurses have protested at tobacco company shareholder meetings to
speak out for our patients, and to ask the industry to stop marketing products
that cause millions worldwide to suffer and die.
