Our kids tend to do what we do. Don’t let smoking be one of them.

According to the American Indian Community Tobacco Project [www.aictp.umn.edu] 3 out of every 5 American Indian adults smoke, and nearly 2 out of every 5 American Indian deaths are due to cigarette smoking and breathing secondhand smoke. Teens whose family members smoke are 3 times more likely to smoke themselves. Question: So what do we do about this? Answer: Prevention!

In the Spirit of Medicine features the essays of Dr. Arne Vainio, an enrolled member of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe and a family practice doctor on the Fond Du Lac reservation in Cloquet.
