Yeah George burns lived to be 100, and what, he smoked 10 cigars a day for 75 years. He once said, "If I had taken my doctor's advice and quit smoking when he advised me to, I wouldn't have lived to go to his funeral."

Then why was smoking blamed on those who got lung cancer in the 60's?  There was more air pollution inn the 60's then now!  Read our articles on SMOKING does not cause lung cancer - the CDC stats prove it!

Lung cancer rates among non-smokers have doubled over the past decade amid concerns that high levels of air pollution lie behind the rise, a study shows.

The number of lung cancer deaths among people who have never smoked will overtake deaths from smoking- related cancer within a decade if the trend continues, according to the UK’s largest cancer surgery centre.

Researchers worry that this shift would make the condition, which is the deadliest form of cancer, even harder to diagnose and treat in time. There are 46,400 new cases and 36,000 associated deaths in Britain each year, and only one in 20 patients survives for more than ten years.


Lung cancer has overwhelmingly been linked to cigarettes, which caused about nine out of ten cases.…

Smoking Does Not

Cause Lung Cancer

(According to WHO/CDC Data)*

By:  James P. Siepmann, MD

Yes, it is true, smoking does not cause lung cancer.  It is only one of many
risk factors for lung cancer. I initially was going to write an article on how the
professional literature and publications misuse the language by saying "smoking
causes lung cancer"1,2, but the more that I looked into how biased the literature,
professional organizations, and the media are, I modified this article to one on
trying to put the relationship between smoking and cancer into perspective.
(No, I did not get paid off by the tobacco companies, or anything else like that.)

When the tobacco executives testified to Congress that they did not believe that
smoking caused cancer, their answers were probably truthful and I agree with that
statement. Now, if they were asked if smoking increases the risk of getting lung
cancer, then their answer based upon current evidence should have be "yes." 
But even so, the risk of a smoker getting lung cancer is much less than anyone
would suspect.   Based upon what the media and anti-tobacco organizations say,
one would think that if you smoke, you get lung cancer (a 100% correlation)
or at least expect a 50+% occurrence before someone uses the word "cause."  

Would you believe that the real number is < 10% (see Appendix A)? 

Yesa US white male (USWM) cigarette smoker has an 8% lifetime chance
of dying from lung cancer but the USWM nonsmoker also has a 1% chance
of dying from lung cancer (see Appendix A).  In fact, the data used is biased
in the way that it was collected and the actual risk for a smoker is probably less. 
I personally would not smoke cigarettes and take that risk, nor recommend
cigarette smoking to others, but the numbers were less than I had been led
to believe.  I only did the data on white males because they account for the
largest number of lung cancers in the US, but a similar analysis can be done
for other groups using the CDC data. 

You don't see this type of information being reported, and we hear things like,
"if you smoke you will die", but when we actually look at the data, 

lung cancer accounts for only 2% of the annual deaths
worldwide and only 3% in the US.

This is what Bob said to me when I found this story...."I wonder how many people that favor taxes on cigarettes, favor like taxes and bans on sugar?  This is the perfect example of Conservatives being sucked into the divide and conquer strategy of the Democrats......"


Sugar is 'the most dangerous drug of our time' and should come with smoking-style health warnings, says Dutch health chief

  • Paul van der Velpen, head of Amsterdam's health service, says sugar is a drug and its use should be discouraged because it is addictive
  • He says when people are eating fats and proteins they stop when they are full but if they are eating sugar they keep eating for longer
  • He suggests sugar should be taxed and regulated like alcohol and tobacco

The insanity continues to smokeless cigarettes....

Magical beliefs spawn e-cig bans
Primitive peoples who relied on magic rather than science to explain how the world works often believed in what is known as “sympathetic magic”—the idea that if item A looks like item B, that means A either shares B's traits or gives you actual power over B.

We are running a series of articles in our YOUR HEALTH TODAY section which I think will absolutely blow most of our readers today! Over the past 40 years, we have been overwhelmed with the evils of smoking. The message has basically been, SMOKE ONE CIGARETTE and YOU WILL DIE A DAY YOUNGER! Have you ever thought of any benefits of smoking? Honestly, could there be any benefits? Well I did my own investigation and guess what? Smoking in moderation may actually be GOOD for you! I know that smacks in the face of everything science and government has been telling us, but sometimes governments LIE! Here are just a few examples of FACTS I bet you don't know:
