ANNOUNCEMENT MADE ON THIS DAY IN 1964

U.S. Surgeon General Luther Terry released the first report of the Advisory Committee on Smoking and Health.


U.S. Surgeon General Luther Terry knew his report was a bombshell. He intentionally chose to release it on January 11, 1964, a Saturday, so as to
limit its immediate effects on the stock market. It was on this date that, on
behalf of the U.S. Government, Terry announced a definitive link between
smoking and cancer.
