What is OTF?
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.
What does it mean to Take the Pledge?
Anyone can Take the Pledge to refuse to use tobacco products on OTF’s website. When taking the pledge, you:
- Own the fact that using tobacco products is harmful to your health.
- Trust in your ability to refuse to use tobacco products.
- Find support in the OTF community when you need it and share your success with others!
When you 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
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.
