Judge orders tobacco companies to say they lied
Judge wants tobacco companies to say they deliberately deceived the American public about smoking's dangerous effects

A federal judge on Tuesday ordered tobacco companies to publish corrective statements that say they lied about the dangers of smoking and that disclose smoking's health effects, including the death on average of 1,200 people a day.

Re: Judge orders tobacco companies to say they lied
As i sit here smoking away and drinking my coffee, i totally agree. Its good the labels will say they lied, BECAUSE THEY DID.

I have kicked a couple of habits, but if i dont have cigs i go mental within a very short time. I'm desperate.
SPEAK UP. SILENCE IS DEADLY!

I am currently experiencing life at several WTFs per hour.

Yes I remember see old commercials where they said smoking was healthy.

Not sure if it was a deliberate lie in the beginning, but they were sure proven to be wrong, to say the least!

It is, look up the history books of chemists, it protects against lung cancer from naturally occurring radon gas, which is the biggest cause of lung cancer in the world, from uranium mining.
In the clay trenches in WWI, it protected against radiation poisoning.

Some of the old TV commercials featured Doctors, smoking on camera; advertising cigs.

Re: Judge orders tobacco companies to say they lied
I find it utterly amazing that any human could actually think that burning any substance and intentionally inhaling it wouldn't cause damage. No matter what the substance.

Of course tobacco companies lied.

Physicians lied, too.

But to those who have ever smoked anything, you lied to yourself as well.

Really mate? So my mother died from lung cancer, so I investigated it.
And that is what I found.
She didn't die from smoking at all, she died from naturally occurring radon gas.
Did you know here in NSW, less than 0.00001 % of the population actually dies from lung caner?

i know about radon, but the existence of radon in no way makes smoking tobacco some sort of protection from anything. smoking is far from the only possible cause of lung cancer, but it certainly doesnt protect you from it. i smoke, and have for close to 40 years now. i started knowing it was bad for me, and have never had any cause to disbelieve that. if and or when i get cancer, it'll be entirely my fault, not a tobacco company's.

Sin kills!
...as far as i know.
If smoking is a punishable sin, then prove it, beyond any reasonable doubt. And do not use the 'body is temple' argument, for it the Body of the Son of Man that is the Temple.

Re: Judge orders tobacco companies to say they lied
I have dissected a number of cadavers who succumbed to emphysema, not cancer. Those lungs did not turn into black gelatenous sacks because of nuclear fallout. They did so because of chronic smoke inhalation.

Lungs are abused when they are forced to rid themselves of chronic foreign irritants.

Re: Judge orders tobacco companies to say they lied
Ancient human beings slept beside a huge fire to warm themselves and protect themselves from predators. Imagine how much smoke they inhaled in their lives?

Our human bodies are not so fragile that it cannot take a little damage. Granted that chain smoking is bad, but smoking once in a while may even be good. I smoke about 5 cigs everyday and enjoy every single one of them. Of course, I run for 4 miles later in the evening to cleanse my lungs of the toxins.
