Smokers' Teeth

The smoker's toothpaste ad on TV insults the sensitivities of even the most die-hard cigarette chain smoker. To think that he should worry about tobacco stains on his teeth and not its effect on his lungs!

Whitewashed tombstones, anyone?

If cigarette ads are banned from television, so also should the use of cigarette smoke to promote the sale of smoker's toothpastes--let alone commercialize the absurdity of appreciating whitened teeth of smokers who care nothing about their nicotine- and tar-stained lungs.
