STATEMENT OF MAYOR MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG ON GRAPHIC FDA CIGARETTE LABEL CAMPAIGN
"It is great news that the Federal Food and Drug Administration is following New York City's lead and introducing hard-hitting educational campaigns in its effort to help people quit smoking. The pictures of what smoking does to your body are very graphic - and accurate. Our education campaigns in New York City are an important reason why the number of New Yorkers who smoke is at an all-time low, and I want to congratulate FDA administrator and former New York City health commissioner Margaret Hamburg for her bold policy that will save Americans' lives."
