New Infographics Promote Solution to End Tobacco Use Among Teens and Pregnant Women

Health impacts every aspect of a child’s life and is one of the most important components of overall child well-being. In Kentucky, tobacco takes a toll on the health of children, teens, and pregnant women, but viable solutions exist to end tobacco use. Increasing the tobacco tax by at least $1 is a proven method to prevent teens from starting to smoke and prompts pregnant women to quit smoking. Because it supports a healthy future for Kentucky kids, increasing the tobacco tax is a Blueprint for Kentucky’s Children policy priority and a priority of the Coalition for a Smoke-Free Tomorrow.

Recently Kentucky Youth Advocates, the Blueprint for Kentucky’s Children, and the Coalition for a Smoke-Free published two infographics relating to teen smoking and smoking among pregnant women. View the infographics below, and click here for a PDF of Prevent Teens from Starting to Smoke and here for a PDF of Protect Pregnant Mothers and Their Babies.

The Coalition for a Smoke-Free Tomorrow is asking Kentuckians to urge their legislators to increase Kentucky’s tobacco tax by at least $1. Check out our action alert here for more information about how to contact your legislators.
