I'm sure that many didn't realize that today is World Cancer day. You may want to read the article to see what a Professor from the University of Colorado Cancer Center has to say about smoking and second hand smoke, especially as it relates to children.

AAP Calls for Smoke-Free Environments for World Cancer Day
WASHINGTON, Feb. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/-- The American Academy of
Pediatrics (AAP) and its 60,000 member pediatricians join the International
Union Against Cancer in its World Cancer Day initiative Monday, February 4,
to promote smoke-free environments for children worldwide.
"There is no safe level of tobacco smoke exposure," said Renee R.
Jenkins, MD, FAAP, president of the AAP. "There is absolutely no safe way
to smoke around children. Smoking in another room is not safe. Smoking near
an open window does not reduce the danger. Tobacco toxins spread throughout
the house and remain in the environment even after a cigarette is
For children, the health risks of secondhand smoke are even greater
than they are for adults. Tobacco smoke puts young children at risk for
increased rates of asthma and more severe asthma, and it increases the risk
of pneumonia, ear infections and sudden infant death syndrome.
Last month, the World Health Organization reported that almost half of
the world's children are exposed to second-hand smoke. The American Academy
of Pediatrics urges all who care about children to help eliminate
children's exposure to tobacco smoke by helping parents quit. The AAP urges
parents to adopt strict no-smoking policies everywhere a child spends time
-- at home and at school, in babysitters' homes, in day care centers and in
The AAP thanks the International Union Against Cancer for its continued
leadership in efforts to reduce children's exposure to tobacco, and is
pleased to see increasing recognition of the need to protect children and
teens from the largest avoidable cause of death worldwide. Only together
can we eliminate tobacco and secondhand smoke from children's lives.
The American Academy of Pediatrics is an organization of 60,000 primary
care pediatricians, pediatric medical subspecialists and pediatric surgical
specialists dedicated to the health, safety and well being of infants,
children, adolescents and young adults. The AAP Julius B. Richmond Center,
a national center of excellence funded by the Flight Attendant Medical
Research Institute, is dedicated to the elimination of children's exposure
to tobacco. The center is named for pediatrician and former Surgeon General
Julius B. Richmond.

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.

have been researching for months and reading reviews for each pharmacy and finally decided to take the plunge and order from one. After coming to the conclusion http://goo.gl/9Me2E1 seemed the most safest and had the best feedback I ordered my pills. Was very apprehensive at first due to cc fraud, ell and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase againspam and being generally ripped off (have not received one spam email and no cc fraud) order process and checkout was simple.
placed my order on my debit card and was charged straight away and received confirmation email immediately. choose the speedy del trackable and was advised del would be 7-9 days and order was placed on the 08/01. was just about to email them today to chase up as now 15 days but behold package had been posted through my door. packaging seems as shown on webiste. apart from small delay on advertised shipping time i have been generally please with the pharmacy.
wont be taking the pills for another few weeks yet but all going well and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase again from them.
