The penny seems to have finally dropped.
The WHO have opened their eyes and recognised something that has been patently obvious for years.
Up until now they have been so firmly convinced that smoking was not only the sole cause of lung cancer but also the cause of just about every ailment known to man that they completely overlooked such trivial matters such as the fact that smoking levels have reduced drastically since the 50s, while lung cancers, asthmas and all those other lovelies have seen a steady increase.
Now those of us with eyes in our heads and more than a couple of braincells to rub together have known this for years. If there is an inverse relationship then the supposed cause cannot produce the supposed effect. For cause and effect to work, you need the opposite – a direct relationship.
So what has seen a dramatic increase since the 50s? Why, traffic of course. The fact that lung cancers are more prevalent in cities and near motorways should be a little bit of a hint too?
Now all of this is going to come as a bit of a shock to the brain-dead who have become so convinced that a little bit of smouldering leaf is the root of all evil. While they can flap their hands in the air on sight of a cigarette, and demand that anywhere they may wish to visit be smoke free, they are going to have a bit of a problem with this latest pronouncement.
There is a simple solution however.
All they have to do is to stop breathing.
Now the human body has a natural inclination to resist this measure so what I would suggest is that they place a plastic bag over their heads. That is sure to prevent all those nasty carcinogens entering their precious airways.
And while they are at it, they might like to take a look at a little video.
possible probable cause for the increase in cancers.
Watch it hot up through the Fifties and Sixties.
It sort of puts a tinchy wee bit of tobacco smoke in perspective?
