Cigarettes were in fact promoted as beneficial for health. They were listed in pharmaceutical encyclopaedias until 1906 and prescribed by doctors for coughs, colds and tuberculosis (a disease which the World Health Organization now links with tobacco).

thats weird  :o how can smoking be linked with tuberculosis wen it was around before cigs  :o the mind boggles

US surgeon Alton Ochsner recalled that when he was a medical student in 1919 his class was summoned to observe an autopsy of a lung cancer victim. At that time, the disease was so rare it was thought unlikely the students would ever get another chance,

so cigars,pipes n chewing tobbacco use is seen as ok as ya more likely to be pickpocketted by a goat than get lung cancer  :o

so cigs are dangerous i accept that, so why attack other tobbacco products wen ther not dangerous  ???
