SUBJECT:  SMOKING AND THE TOBACCO COMPANIES

THIS IS SOMETHING THAT I THOUGHT ABOUT FOR MY 1ST EDITORIAL.  MANY OF YOU KNOW ABOUT WHAT SMOKING CAN DO.  WELL, HERE'S SOME STUFF YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW.

DISPITE THE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION'S AUTHORITY, THEY
DO NOT HAVE AUTHORITY TO REGULATE THE TOBACCO COMPANIES.  IF THEY REGULATED TOBACCO COMPANIES, YOU WOULD SEE A HUGE LIST OF INGREDIENTS THAT THEY PUT IN CIGARETTES (NICOTINE AND TAR ARE 2 INGREDIENTS THAT COMMON SENSE WOULD TELL YOU).  BUT SINCE THEY AREN'T REGULATED, THEY DON'T HAVE TO TELL YOU DIDDLY SQUAT ABOUT WHAT THEY PUT IN CIGARETTES.

THE FDA TRIED TO GET AUTHORITY TO REGULATE THE TOBACCO COMPANIES, BUT THE SUPREME COURT SAID NO.  THEY THOUGHT THAT IF TOBACCO COMPANIES WERE REGULATED, THE ECONOMY WOULD SUFFER.

MY OPINION:

ALL THE TOBACCO COMPANIES WANT IS MONEY.  THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR LIFE.  THEY DON'T CARE IF YOU LIVE OR DIE.  ALL THEY CARE ABOUT IS YOU USING THEIR PRODUCTS AND YOU GIVING YOUR MONEY TO THEM.

HERE'S ANOTHER THING THAT I LEARNED FROM MY HEALTH TEACHER TODAY (4/24/02):  CIGARETTES (AND ALL OTHER TOBACCO PRODUCTS) ARE THE ONLY LEGAL THING THAT, IF USED CORRECTLY, WILL EVENTUALLY KILL YOU.

I THINK THAT THE TOBACCO COMPANIES ARE A BUNCH OF
GREEDY DINGBATS THAT ARE INTERESTED ONLY IN MONEY.
