Although Facebook bars all paid tobacco ads, Stanford University researchers have found more than 100 unpaid brand and online vendor pages which promote leading brands of tobacco products. More than half of the identified pages included “shop now” instructions, and less than half of these included an “age gate” discouraging minors from visiting. Nearly all the sites identified included images of the products being promoted.

LifeTip: Encourage Facebook to remove these tobacco-promoting pages—it will be a win for your children, and for Facebook, too. Attend “Overcome Addictions Naturally” with Dr. David DeRose for more recommendations.
