On this episode of This Day In History, Tony and Armand are here to tell us smoking is not a good thing. In 1964, Surgeon General of the United States, Dr. Luther Terry, published the landmark report Smoking and Health: Report of the Advisory Committee to the Surgeon General of the United States. The report was the first to note smoking may be hazardous to your health, energizing a nationwide anti-smoking campaign. Also, we learn about the death of Yankees slugger, Wally Pipp, and the guys tell us more about the famous story involving Lou Gehrig. Join us for This Day In History!
