“Smoke, Lies and the Nanny State” by Joe Jackson

A few days ago, my friend Daize sent me a link to Joe Jackson's (the musician) essay about smoking called "Smoke, Lies and the Nanny State". I just read it and thought I should share it with you.

The article tackles the issues of statistics used by antismoking zealots to back their arguments (it is very hard to actually prove that the lung cancer is directly linked to the smoking, let alone other 'smoking-related diseases'), it explains the hysteria of wide-spreading smoking bans and tells us who are the people behind the movement. Overall, a very well-written and informative article.

You can download the essay from here.

    Thank you for sharing this type of resource and information. A nicely writen and backed presentation supporting the American free choice of smoking. Keep it coming. We are going to need more and more of these in this growing society of “anit-smoking legislators”.

Please share your experience...
