The Tobacco Control Industry demonised nicotine and put back research on it's uses. People still believe that nicotine is a what causes lung cancer and creates addiction to cigarettes. Even though it was known in the sixties that nicotine was not the ingredient in cigarettes that caused illness. Right now, there are medics in the UK who are ignoramuses. And THEY are in public health. (video)
Billions that could have been used for research on how to make smoking safer has been wasted on a hate campaign against smokers themselves and the remodeling of the mind of society.
The Tobacco Control Industry has failed to produce anything better for smokers than patches and gum which Michael Russell offered as a harm reduction method to assist quitting smokers 40 years ago. And even then, they fought his ideas. "but until now the ‘smoking replacement’ idea has been meeting vigorous opposition from tobacco control activists and regulators." But even so patches and gum and other NRT has become truly profitable and Tobacco Control and Big Pharma have snuggled up together.
The Tobacco Control Industry have adversely affected the economy.The hospitality industry has been severely affected in the UK - and watch what is happening in New Orleans right now. The Tobacco Control Industry has encouraged smuggling by high taxes, plain packaging and inflated costs for smokers. They fail to admit the fact.
The Tobacco Control Industry fails to be honest in its research and confabulated all kinds of illnesses with smoking and death when in fact the death rate from smoking related illnesses in smokers is 50% yet the same illnesses occur in non-smokers, dying also at a rate of 50% from them. Visuals like the "black" lung has been attributed to smokers - smokers lung - whereas ALL diseased lungs are black. But a healthy smoker has pink lungs just like everyone else. "Tar" in tobacco isn't tar at all, it is simply the name of a chemical - yet they still use visuals of black gunge oozing out of cigarettes/lungs.Any company advertising like that would be taken to court for false representation.
The Tobacco Control Industry twists minds, turns families against each other and has made a divided society of intolerance and hatred. The Tobacco Control Industry has been very costly in misery.
The Tobacco Control Industry intends to continue in their arrogant mission to a smoke free world.
I think Tobacco Control should be disbanded. They have strutted their stuff for too long. The world would be a nicer, more relaxed, and happier place without them. It would be less corrupt.
Now, in this new time, modern technology has done more to make recreational nicotine users safe from the harms of tobacco than Tobacco Control ever did since it began. They are still stuck in the old world of prohibition and quit or die dogmas and creeds. Shame on them.
Tobacco Control Industry - are you listening? Smoking gave me more pleasure than you could possibly conceive. But, now, accidentally, I have become a vaper. I feel lucky to be a vaper. You are NOT going to make my life a misery again. JUST KEEP AWAY FROM ME!
