Here is a scary fact:  Smoking causes more deaths in the US each year than AIDS, alcohol, cocaine, heroin, homicide, suicide, motor vehicle crashes and fires - combined!  Yet 23% of African American males smoke, and 15% of African American females smoke.  We all know that smoking is addictive and leads to all kinds of health issues, yet cigarettes are still sold, people still buy them, and tobacco companies continue to bombard the community, particularly the African American community, with cigarette ads.  Why does this happen?  On the next Another View we'll talk about smoking, the harmful effects, and examine just how well cessation programs work.  Join host Barbara Hamm Lee, along with guest host, Dr. Keith Newby for critical information that could literally save your life!  Plus Lisa Godley brings us the inspiring music of Dr. Adolphus Hailstork.  It's all on Another View, Friday, April 25 at NOON on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us live on this blog!
