The media companies that dominate Hollywood know what they need to do | The major studios have proved they can keep smoking out of the movies that kids see most. By 2013, every studio had successfully kept its youth-rated movies practically smokefree for at least one year. If they simply kept it up, the film industry can prevent a million tobacco deaths in this generation. 

Only one thing stands in the way. These companies refuse to instruct their trade group, the Motion Picture Association of America, to R-rate future movies with smoking.

Put on the pressure | To protect millions of kids worldwide, join the people working from the local to the international level to stop smoking in movies from killing in real life...
