Study: Cigarette makers targeted women

Article: http://www.cnn.com/2005/HEALTH/05/31/tobacco.women.reut/index.html

"They said internal documents released by tobacco companies under a 1998 court settlement show the companies created cigarettes, including "slim" and so-called "light" brands, in part to attract women."

"Writing in the June issue of the journal Addiction, Carpenter and colleagues said their study of tobacco company documents show a clear effort to find out what might make women want to smoke."

I'm not surrpised really. I tend to forget about these types of products when thinking about how money-grubbers make women suffer for their gain... Thoughts on this?

I also diet. What is up with the big anti-diet picture on the community info page?
