U.S. ad campaign points to dangers of dual cigarette/e-cig use

U.S. ad campaign points to dangers of dual cigarette/e-cig use | Archaeology, Culture, Religion and Spirituality | Scoop.it
(Reuters) - The U.S. Centers for Disease Control is launching an ad campaign warning consumers against the dual use of e-cigarettes and regular cigarettes. Nationally, about three in four adult e-cigarette users also smoke cigarettes, the CDC said. "If you only cut down the number of cigarettes you smoke by adding another tobacco product, like e-cigarettes, you still face serious health risks," the CDC said in a statement. "Smokers must quit smoking completely to fully protect their health - even a few cigarettes a day are dangerous." The ads, which will begin running in print publications and radio on Monday, feature a 35-year-old named Kristy who tried using e-cigarettes to quit smoking, but wound up using both products.

Indiana governor signs religious freedom bill that could affect gays

Indiana governor signs religious freedom bill that could affect gays | Archaeology, Culture, Religion and Spirituality | Scoop.it
Indiana Governor Mike Pence on Thursday signed into law a controversial religious freedom bill that could allow businesses and individuals to deny services to gays, in a move that prompted protests from some business leaders. Supporters of the bill, which was passed overwhelmingly by both chambers of the Republican-controlled state legislature, say it will keep the government from forcing business owners to act against strongly held religious beliefs. Opponents say it is discriminatory and broader than other state religious freedom laws. “The Constitution of the United States and the Indiana Constitution both provide strong recognition of the freedom of religion but today, many people of faith feel their religious liberty is under attack by government action," Pence said in a statement after signing the bill.
