To the Editor: A study in Boston in 1988 showed that 11% of primary care physicians' offices visited were free of tobacco advertisements and that only 25% of the physicians interviewed were interested in cancelling subscriptions to magazines with cigarette advertisements.1 In 1989, the American Medical Association (AMA) House of Delegates resolved to " encourage physicians to substitute magazines without cigarette advertisements for those with cigarette advertisements in their office waiting rooms."1
