The US Department of Health and Human Services has launched a website aimed at offering the ‘best and most up-to-date tobacco-related information from across its agencies’.
BeTobaccoFree.gov is said to provide information on tobacco, federal and state laws and policies, health statistics, and evidence-based methods on how to quit.
‘The site’s social media dashboard, “Say it – Share it”, provides real-time updates from HHS’ tobacco-related social media accounts, including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Infographics, podcasts, and Tumblr,’ the website’s announcement said.
One section of the website (http://betobaccofree.hhs.gov/about-tobacco/Electronic-Cigarettes/index.html) seems aimed at discouraging people from using e-cigarettes and promoting the use of nicotine gum, nicotine skin patches, nicotine lozenges, nicotine oral inhaled products, nicotine nasal spray, Zyban and Chantix.
