Al Jazeera English, January 8th, 2014 -- A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association attributes a drop of over 50% in the US smoking rate to tobacco control policies. Patrick Reynolds: "These policies include higher tobacco taxes, smoking bans and State spending on tobacco prevention and cessation campaigns." The study notes that 8 million people in the US lived an average 19.6 years longer.

When Al Jazeera's host asks Reynolds why smoking has increased around the world, he replies, "When Big Tobacco first anticipated the decline of smoking in the US, they began aggressive campaigns to market their deadly products in the Third World to poor, less educated peoples."
