This article is a crock. The only thing smoking is proven to cause is skidmarks on antis panties.

Smokers for Celibacy*
Fleur Adcock

Some of us are a little tired of hearing that cigarettes kill.

We'd like to warn you about another way of making yourself ill:

we suggest that in view of AIDS, herpes, chlamydia, cystitis and NSU, not to mention genital warts and cervical cancer and the proven connection between the two,

if you want to avoid turning into physical wrecks what you should give up is not smoking but sex.

We're sorry if you're upset, but think of the grisly things you might otherwise get.

We can't see much point in avoiding emphysema at sixty-five if that's an age at which you have conspicuously failed to arrive;

and as for cancer, it is a depressing fact that at least for women this disease is more likely to occur in the reproductive tract.

We could name friends of ours who died that way, if you insist, but we feel sure you can each provide your own list.

You'll notice we didn't mention syphilis and gonorrhoea; well, we have now, so don't get the idea

that just because of antibiotics quaint old clap and pox are not still being generously spread around by men's cocks.

Some of us aren't too keen on the thought of micro-organisms travelling up into our brain and giving us General Paralysis of the Insane.

We're opting out of one-night stands; we'd rather have a cigarette in our hands.

If it's a choice between two objects of cylindrical shape we go for the one that is seldom if ever guilty of rape.

Cigarettes just lie there quietly in their packs waiting until you call on one of them to help you relax.

They aren't moody; they don't go in for sexual harassment and threats, or worry about their performance as compared with that of other cigarettes,

nor do they keep you awake all night telling you the story of their life, beginning with their mother and going on until morning about their first wife.

Above all, the residues they leave in your system are thoroughly sterilised and clean, which is more than can be said for the products of the human machine.

Altogether, we've come to the conclusion that sex is a drag, Just give us a fag.

"Leading Cancers in Women, Men, & Children

For Women: Breast cancer is the leading cancer for women in the US. Lung cancer is the second most common form of cancer and colorectal cancer is third among white women. The number 2 and 3 cancers are reversed among black and Asian/Pacific Island women. For all women, the fourth leading cancer is cancer of the uterus."

The undeniable connection between antismoking propaganda and the pharmaceutical industry -- or: ministries at the service of multinationals.

It is not a coincidence that the pharmaceutical giants pay antismoking activists all over the world to instigate hysteria and mass hatred against smokers. The goal of this marketing campaign, which involves even well-known names of international medicine, is quite clear: the smoker, frightened by the disinformation, tormented even by his kids (who get brainwashed in school), thrown out from public places and workplaces – and finally hated by society – tries to quit to conform. But, since he is told he is an “addict”, he must turn to the help of his doctor, who either sends him to a quit-smoking centre or prescribes the “therapy” directly, depending on the business arrangements made with Big Pharma. With public money, therefore, a private enterprise that is based on persecution is promoted – a persecution that goes after the very segment of the public that pays for that kind of marketing, using “public health” to induce the people to change their behaviour through using false and biased information, to satisfy the financial needs of private colossuses.

This is the chilling reality of the Fraud of the Century and documentation from two major pharmaceutical manufacturers corroborates the mountain of evidence (not the statistical one!...) we are accumulating.
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) is the world's wealthiest foundation devoted to health issues. RWJF was named after the former head of Johnson & Johnson (J&J), the world's largest health and medical care products conglomerate, and most of its wealth comes from J&J stock holdings. In l992, the foundation was worth more than $3 billion, with more than $2 billion of that in J&J stock -- by l998 it was worth nearly $8 billion, with more than $5 billion in J&J stock.

It was in l992 that the RWJF began to focus on eradicating substance abuse and tobacco use in America. Toward that end, in l992 it spent roughly $53 million (out of a total of nearly $230 million) in grants, contracts and programs. By l998, it spent more than $73 million (of its total of nearly $350 million) in grants, contracts and programs for the year on substance abuse and tobacco control. Some of the tobacco-related funding promotes nicotine research and smoking cessation, which in turn benefits Johnson & Johnson, one of the biggest producers of smoking cessation products.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://inhousegeneric.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.
