Delamothe develops the case against British American Tobacco (BAT) and Imperial Tobacco, our leading cancer exporters.1
Overseas readers, particularly in lower and middle income countries, should lobby their governments directly and via their professional organisations, with the aim of having ministers challenge UK ambassadors. Ministers should ask what the UK government intends to do about the activities of these cancer exporting tobacco companies that are creating a 21st century tobacco holocaust for the developing world that will dwarf that of the 20th century.
