Today's Highlights: Hypocrisy, Inconsistency, and Junk Science

Today I feature 3 posts that highlight hypocrisy, inconsistency, and junk science within the tobacco control movement:

1. Hypocrisy: The American Heart Association bans Miss New Hampshire from walking in the AHA Heart Walk, while at the same time teaming up with Philip Morris to support its chief legislative priority.

2. Inconsistency: The American Medical Association criticizes the tobacco industry not for advertising its deadly products, but for advertising too much.

3. Junk Science: The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids commissions a survey on the public's attitudes toward the FDA tobacco legislation.
