PBS Newshour: Smoking cessation expert quoted on unchanging numbers of smokers

Release Date: September 7, 2010

Gary Giovino, professor of health behavior, is quoted in an article on PBS Newshour's The Rundown blog that reports one in five Americans is a smoker, according to a study released by the Centers for Disease Control, a percentage that has remained unchanged since 2005. He said many researchers believe a "hardening" of the smoker population might be contributing to the stalled decline.
