What would you think if you found out that a scientist was paid to mislead the public about the dangerous health effects of a product - especially if that product were linked to a major killer of infants?

It sounds outrageous, but the latest revelation about Philip Morris, the world's largest tobacco company, is that the company engaged in an active misinformation campaign to cast doubt on the proven link between tobacco smoke and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), a serious killer of infants.

You can help stop Big Tobacco today: [link]

A new study this week of once-secret industry documents showed that on at least two occasions, the company sought out and paid scientists to write articles challenging the documented link between secondhand smoke and SIDS. One of these articles was published in a respected journal and cited at least 19 times by other scientists!

Here's what you can do: our government is right now suing the tobacco industry to end their marketing to children. If the government wins, the trial judge can order the industry to stop its harmful practices and pay billions of dollars to fund programs to prevent kids from starting to smoke and help smokers quit.

Please urge newly confirmed Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to continue to aggressively pursue this federal lawsuit to end tobacco marketing to children.

Thank you for making a difference!
