(DNAINFO) Carolina Pichardo | November 16, 2015 — She wants Glamour to stub out the cigs.
A local health activist has launched a petition asking the popular women’s magazine to stop advertising cigarettes while the glossy touts articles about quitting smoking.
Glamour subscriber Catarina Rivera 29, started the petition last month after noticing ads for cigarettes alongside articles about topics such as breast cancer.
“I was just so angry,” said Rivera, former health coordinator for the Harlem Children’s Zone and founder of the nonprofit obesity-fighting organization Healthy Kids in the Heights. “I couldn’t believe there was a cigarette ad in the magazine.”
