A recent study suggests advertising could be one reason smoking deaths among black Americans are so high. The study's author, Dr. Brian Primack, explains the disparities between pro-tobacco advertising in white and black markets.

Primack is a professor of medicine and pediatrics at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.
