The U.S. Surgeon General Discusses Children and Smoking

WASHINGTON (AP) - Unless the nation takes more aggressive action, the U.S. surgeon general says one in 13 children could see their lives shortened by smoking.

Surgeon General Borish Lushniak spoke at the White House as he unveiled a 980-page report urging a new commitment to making the next generation a smoke-free generation.

The report comes even as scientists add still more diseases to the long list of harms from cigarettes.
