Ah, so YOU think the tobacco industry should be shut down for pushing addiction, too? Great. That anti-choice juggernaut needs to be completely dismantled.

That depends on what government thinks and if I actually have freedoms to that right, they own me.

Actually, in that limited range of thoughts, what we need is a law to protect us from the tobacco companies--and some legal actions to impress the money-mongering parasites that have been running them for the last half century with the fact that they were behaving BADLY.
As to the sodas, we actually MIGHT need protection from ourselves. The sugary products generally that plague our health do so because we are biologically evolved to ensure (by the motivation of giving us a taste for sweetness) that we would make the effort required (in a more natural state) to gain adequate quantities of carbohydrates. We still have the motivation, but is far too easy to fulfill the requirements and we don't yet have the "wait that's enough" DNA to keep us from ODs.
The "Free Market System" literally capitalizes on that, resulting in the proliferation of needlessly huge drinks and the placement of candy to maximize impulse buying at the grocery store.
That may be a bit too coldly logical for you, but it IS worth considering a society-level response to knowledge of what is happening--and why--to the individuals within that society.
Of course you don't fall for the super large drink or placement of candy...you're too smart to fall for that Free Market chicanery. But we must protect all those folks who aren't as smart as you, those fools who are taken advantage of by sleazy Marketing. Of course if we were all as smart as you we wouldn't need any of this "protect me from myself" legislation. But until then the elitist must do what they can to protect their intellectually inferior brethren.

Guess what? I can't control my visual impairment. I was born this way. But smoking, no there's something you can control. How about stop being a douche bag.

Who says I don't? The marketing ploy works or they wouldn't do it. If they DIDN'T do it, there would be far less trouble with empty calories.
One thing I could never figure out, though, is how they continue to sell large soft drinks in fast food places to people who are eating there and can refill as often as they like.

Phoenix hill tavern, anytime, big talker, we'll see who's scared. Just look for the 6'7 300 lb all muscle dude smoking a cigar and getting grabbed by all the chicks that are too hot to give you the time of day.
And YOU can't do squat about it either. For once i agree with Hugh Jass (lord forgive me lol) You may be all brawn & NO brain. Making physical threats on the web is about as effective as trying to blow bubbles in a vacum. OOPS the vacum is in your muscle bound head.
You are about as intelligent as a school yard bully that is 2 yrs behind everyone else.
