I just read this interesting article from 2009 about the anti-smoking lobby. It’s worth a read if you want a different perspective on where all of the anti-smoking hysteria is coming from. The article references the book “Hyping Health Risks: Environmental Hazards in Daily Life and the Science of Epidemiology” by epidemiologist Geoffrey C. Kabat which seems to receive high ratings on Amazon. We already know that evidence isn’t the anti-tobacco camp’s strong suit – just look at how the scientific evidence is that the health risk of smoking cigars is minimal – and yet the Australian government continues to throw cigars into the same category as cigarettes. Perhaps, as this 2009 article suggests, the entire anti-smoking lobby is manipulating data to meet their own ends?
