  1. Well at least they’re consistent. However those figures should be broken down.

    “Every year, tobacco kills 6 million people— 5.4 million active smokers and 600,000 non-smokers exposed to secondhand smoke.”

    A profit of £5.2 billion worldwide is peanuts! That’s nowhere near half the unearned profit a single country such as the UK makes from tobacco taxes.
