About Us

UnholySmoke.org is the internet collaboration of Physicians and Nurses Against Tobacco, Inc. (PANAT). This group assembled in 2007 in Rhode Island out of grave concern for the future of a tobacco-ridden society. After witnessing the effects of smoking on the health and relationships of our patients, we healthcare workers realized that the message to quit was not effective enough.

Unholysmoke.org displays our effort to change public attitudes and policies toward the production, distribution, sale and use of tobacco. Leaders are entrusted with the care and protection of their citizens. They can no longer overlook the scientific research demonstrating the danger of tobacco. It is the intention of Unholysmoke.org to unify and amplify our voices, persuading those who can and must regulate human activities to condemn the tobacco industry.
