The Truth Behind the Smoke Screen
Designed primarily to reach kids before they take that first puff or chew, this straightforward program hammers home a single message—tobacco kills. From a brief history of America’s love affair with cigarettes——omplete with ancient TV commercials and happily smoking movie stars (now dead)—the program calls on doctors and scientists who explain how tobacco harms the body (90 percent of lung cancer deaths are smoking related), why smoking and chewing are so addictive, and what steps users can take to break their habit. Illustrative side scenes and graphics reinforce key points. Grades 6–12. Color. 26 minutes. Jaguar Educational. ©2002.
