Tastes of Toxins

Did you know that today is The Great American Spit Out? This week is Chew Week (February 15-21) calling for recognition on the dangers of smokeless tobacco. Today, the cessation of these products are encouraged, even just for a day.

Additionally, Chicago has recently launched a new campaign called the “Tastes of Toxins“. The “Taste of Toxins” is aimed at youth who are attracted to flashy colorful packaging of the flavored tobacco products, including smokeless dip and chew. However, the products are just as addictive and harmful as conventional tobacco but may have candy or fruit flavor to mask the harshness of tobacco.

TAP Students Tap Out Smoking #TAPoutsmoking2014

For the first four weekends of November, ten Teen Advisory Panel (TAP) youth advocates learned about tobacco and marketing and created anti-tobacco photographs. Using childhood toys and games, students designed photographs with counter-marketing messaging to dissuade their peers from ever using and abusing the deadly products. Every year, Big Tobacco spends billions of dollars on advertising and promotion — oftentimes hooking youth early to become lifelong smokers. See below for the full gallery of the students’ work.

To learn more about TAP and past projects, view the TAP tab on this site.
