I've seen both sides of the arguement, and it boils down to this. Smokers should exercise moderation, and smoke only organic tobacco to delegate
their habit to a healthier level of risk. There is also research to suggest that the tar protects lungs from air toxins by providing a covering which
can be regularly renewed, an especially useful concern against radioctive particles.
Smoking became the poster child of the cancer industry since the sixties, when anti-smoking lobbyists succeeded in society-wide measures and awareness
against the habit. While scientists turned a blind eye to the actual causation for the movement formations through the testing of Trinity and
subsequent tests, they knew that cancer would be inevitably on the rise and needed a way to turn the blame back on the citizenry. While mirroring
valid social goals such as not smoking in restaurants and bars to gain popularity, the false blame has been spread on thick over smokers for decades
now to attribute the habit as the vector for several deadening illnesses.
The reality is that a wide variety of societal evils contribute to causing those illnesses, including fallout, traffic exhaust (thousands of times the
pollutants "second-hand smoke" creates, per vehicle), factory and airbourne pollutants, working with diesal or sulphur for extended periods, eating
various umbrella groups of artificial additives and preservatives such as edta, sodium nitrite, aspertame, flouride, etc, eating pesticides, trans
fats, gmos, or other PoPs allowed in food, taking unhealthy pharms and prescriptions from unscrupulous or brainwashed doctors, suffering excess
stress, wifi and microwave bombardment, and the list goes on. It's clearly a case of pinning the tail on the donkey, and picking only one hand-picked
abused among a field of many grazing donkeys.
Financially it's been a government cash cow for as long as many of us have been alive. A pack of cigarettes costs under fifty cents to bring to
market, with about a thousand percent tax markup added to cover the government bill : which should more than cover the allopathy bill for the
so-called medical care. Now they've taken to retroactively suing tobacco companies for ongoing damages over twenty-five years of supplying a legal
product that people bought of their own free will.
Time to rip that poster down folks; stop being mezmerized by the draconian obsession with those who choose to enjoy the little sticks. They are indeed
relaxing, and a small crutch I've found helpful in life. We don't need to hear people towing the government line over it, which is purely the result
of five decades of brainwashing from a time when almost half the population smoked.
