Encouraging people to improve their health by refusing to use tobacco products is in line with the core values of our company—Brent Agin, MD, Founder and CEO, TeaZa® Energy
Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) October 30, 2015
Operation Tobacco Free (OTF)—a prosocial initiative sponsored by TeaZa® Energy—is launching a campaign called Take the Pledge to inspire people to refuse to use tobacco products and commemorate the American Cancer Society’s Great American Smokeout.
OTF is a prosocial initiative launched earlier this month that serves to discourage tobacco use and inspire healthy lifestyles through education, community outreach and support of youth sports and health programs.
Anyone can Take the Pledge to refuse to use tobacco products on OTF’s website. When taking the pledge, individuals are asked to:
- Own the fact that using tobacco products is harmful to their health.
- Trust in their ability to refuse to use tobacco products.
- Find support in the OTF community when they need it and share their success with others!
Individuals who Take the Pledge acknowledge that tobacco in any form is harmful, including cigarettes, cigars, spit tobacco and any other product containing nicotine. All tobacco products, including smokeless tobacco, contain nicotine which is highly addictive. Chew contains at least 28 chemicals known to cause cancer and up to twice the amount of nicotine as a cigarette. Smokeless tobacco use can cause oral lesions, oral cancer, esophageal cancer, pancreatic cancer, heart disease, gum disease and death.¹
Individuals who Take the Pledge through November 19—the date of the 2015 Great American Smokeout—will instantly receive a coupon for 25% Off TeaZa® Energy and are automatically entered to win a $450 smoking cessation package from TeaZa® Energy and its sister companies Trim® Nutrition and TeleWellnessMD. The smoking cessation package includes a month’s supply of Trim® Night Cutter, Trim® Adrenal Repair, Trim® Calm and TeaZa® Energy.
The Take the Pledge campaign is focused on reaching the estimated 42 million smokers and 9 million smokeless tobacco users in the US.²
Educating the public about the harms of tobacco use is an integral part of OTF’s mission to end smokeless tobacco use in the US.
“We are passionate about OTF’s mission. Encouraging people to improve their health by refusing to use tobacco products is in line with the core values of our company,” said Brent Agin, MD, Founder and CEO of Wellness Health Management. Dr. Agin’s inspiration to support the anti-tobacco movement grew from consumer response to his innovative TeaZa® Energy pouches. The herb and vitamin mini-tea bags weren’t intended to be an alternative to tobacco, but many customers say TeaZa® has helped them supplement or stop their tobacco habit.
