For Those Who Smoke !
What other ‘usurpations’ do we have to endure from the ‘specialists’ ?
Though most lung cancer is caused by smoking, fewer than two percent of smokers contract cancer (Professor Sir Richard Doll – 170 per 100,000).
It would be illegal to publicise the effect of a medicine that works in fewer than 2% of patients.
Similarly the warning that "Smoking seriously harms … others around you" is fraudulent, not borne out by the clinical database of passive smoke, and totally contradicted by medical experts without vested interests.
For obvious reasons, the smoking ban in Ireland has now pushed up youth (15-18s) smoking by a massive 16.8% three years post-ban (Office of Tobacco Control data), and destroyed much of normal social life.
It seems Alan Johnson is taken in by the likes of ‘Professor’ Kenneth Warner who pockets $2m from Big Pharma to demonise smokers in the absence of a medical degree.
