From the Industrys Documents

Actually, one of their main terminal values is
to look attractive. In other words, a woman
cannot be attractive if she is fat. Aerobics
(gym) is therefore one of their major activities,
when they do not try to meet the opposite sex in
parties, bars or discotheques. This is their
conception of having an exciting life for the
time being. - Philip Morris, 1993
14
Specifically, these young adult females agree
that smoking is attractive to the opposite sex,
sophisticated/stylish, less intelligent, more
aggressive, more mature, less feminine, smoke
because friends do, feel more comfortable around
others, feel that I'm rebelling… - RJ
Reynolds, 1982

Lung Cancer Death Rates and Smoking Trends Among
Women, 1974-2003
30
  • Former smokers have a higher risk of developing
    lung cancer than non-smokers. Quitting arrests
    your risk at the level at which you quit, but
    will never reduce it to the level of a
    non-smoker.
  • In a recent study in New York, a woman with the
    same smoking history as a man was 2X as likely to
    be diagnosed with lung cancer.

Source NCI, 2003
31
This is Equality?
  • In 2000, the number of Chronic Obstructive
    Pulmonary Disease (COPD) deaths in women
    exceeded those in men for the first time.
  • About 90 of COPD deaths among U.S. women are
    attributed to smoking.

32
  • Cardiovascular disease is the
  • 1 killer
  • of women.
