Ok ...

Why does the WHO have this statement on their website?

"Tobacco is the second major cause of death in the world. It is currently responsible for the death of one in ten adults worldwide (about 5 million deaths each year). If current smoking patterns continue, it will cause some 10 million deaths each year by 2020. Half the people that smoke today -that is about 650 million people- will eventually be killed by tobacco."

I doubt that they have a hidden agenda!!! Like I say, I have no problem with private smoking - but that idea is just not reality at the moment ...

My Aunt's dog died of lung cancer.

And you guessed it; she was a smoker.

Second hand smoker...

The aunt was the first hand smoker, just to clarify

as far as I'm concerned all the non smokers can go and get fcked.... I thoroughly enjoy blowing clouds of smoke in the direction of pregnant women, asthmatics and the elderly.

otis

that's extreme
my best mate smokes
he not only makes an effort not to smoke near above mentioned groups...he also makes an effort not to smoke where kids can see him (influence factor)...there are considerate smokers out there but if their rights get infringed to the point where they can't even smoke outside they're going to say "f this" and rebel

mr guitar
of course the who has an agenda!...what makes you think they don't? as a health organisation they have as much of an agenda as a tobacco union
