The United States Food and Drug Administration finalized a rule this month that extends its authority to all tobacco products. This includes e-cigarettes, cigars, hookah tobacco and pipe tobacco.
American Lung Association focuses on what's best for our health. That's also what the FDA cares about in regards to tobacco. If another generation can be protected from unnecessary death from tobacco use, the laws have proven their worth.
Assistant Vice President of National Advocacy of the American Lung Association Erica Sward joins Melanie Cole, MS, to discuss the impact of this new rule.
