Tens of thousands of the poor beautiful children of Ethiopia will future victims of tobacco, if the tobacco industry gets its way. Believe me, there is NOT ONE tobacco company that truly cares about the health of society. Addicting kids is their forte!

Read the following article also that I wrote previously, showing how illegal British American Tobacco advertisements in the form of posters appeared all over Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, clearly aimed at addicting Ethiopia’s youth to cigarettes. The tobacco industry will stop at nothing to maintain and boost its profits!
