GENEVA — The World Health Organization has lashed out at the tobacco industry for using cigarette brand logos in apparel, accessories and footwear to indirectly promote its products, especially among young people.
"It converts youth to walking billboards because where they can't advertise, they put their logos onto boots, their caps, shirts or their pants, and then convert the youth into a moving billboard," said Douglas Bettcher, director of WHO's tobacco-free initiative.
