Are you a "computer generalted number?"

Each year more than 400,000 people in the US, and over three million around the world, die from tobacco-related illnesses. This project presents just a few of the many people who have shared their photos and stories with hopes of preventing the tobacco industry from spreading the pain to the next generation.

Infact began the Human Toll of Tobacco Photo Project in response to Congressional testimony by a former RJR Nabisco executive that the people who die each year from tobacco are just "computer-generated numbers."

The Project is a collection of photos and stories of people who are suffering or have died from tobacco-related illnesses. Photos have come in from all over the world, and are now part of a powerful banner entitled "The Human Toll of Tobacco." These photos graphically demonstrate the human suffering and loss of life caused by the tobacco industry. The Banner made its memorable debut at the Philip Morris Annual Meeting in the Spring of 1995. The Banner is available for public events around the country to call on tobacco industry leaders and their political allies to stop this preventable epidemic.

INFACT invites you to send photographs of loved ones who are suffering from or have died from tobacco-related illnesses to be part of this project. Contact INFACT to arrange a display of the Banner in your community.
