Doctor Recommended For Sure Death

This advertisement (click on image to enlarge) ran in Good Housekeeping magazine in 1946. It states, "according to a recent Nationwide survey: More Doctors smoke Camels than any other cigarette!"

Is that not amazing?? R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company has been killing people for over 64 years. And they're still at it. It's amazing to me that these companies are even allowed to operate, selling a product that does nothing but harm the health of anyone who uses it, let alone the health of those around them. They're a business who has plied their death trade for years and are apparently pretty good at sales and marketing.

But what's even more amazing to me. What I really don't understand? Is how people today think it's a good idea to smoke. That they still buy cigarettes. And suck that disgusting, toxic smoke into their body. Frankly, I don't care that it's an "addiction". It's KILLING YOU. I mean, seriously, is that worth it? Why don't you just step in front of a bus?

New York City is considering a ban on smoking in outdoor public places, like parks, beaches and Times Square. Frankly, I hope it goes through. I hate being next to a smoker. I hate even more that I can't even go outside to get away from them. That I can't enjoy a public outdoor facility because someone's smoke is wafting into my nostrils. It should be banned and I hope it starts a nationwide trend.

If not, we'll have to move to the Arctic Circle to find pure, fresh air. I like the cold but I'm not willing to go that far.

What's really shocking is when people we look up to smoke, chew or dip tobacco.

Of course, my eating habits are probably killing me.
