a.            tobacco companies must be held accountable for their deceptive marketing practices, especially those that target young people and disadvantaged groups

b.            cigarette smoking contributes to poverty and lack of ability to purchase healthy food, especially in low­to­medium income countries and therefore should be banned

c.             the health impacts of smoking tobacco are so significant and scientifically­proven that all public health efforts to reduce and eliminate smoking can be justified

d.            public health has a legitimate case for tobacco control policies because the disadvan­ taged are more likely to smoke than other groups, have more constraints on their choice to begin or continue to smoke, and thus are more likely to bear the burdens of smoking, particularly the health effects. However, public health must also be sensitive to the unin­ tended consequences of tobacco control policies (like stigmatization) because these will fall disproportionately on the disadvantaged

considered tobacco­control policies, even if these improvements take time to come into effect

c.             given the harms to health caused by tobacco smoking, smoking bans and public health campaigns that stigmatize smoking are entirely justified

d.            in wealthy, industrialized countries, there is no justification for public health to inter­ fere with smokers’ rights to choose whether or not to smoke because there is so much information available about the harms of smoking that people make free and informed smoking decisions

f.             all of the above except (d)
