It is FB but you can watch it without an account.

Thanks for posting this @Jose, I for one find it encouraging that there are people who “get it”, and are going to some lengths to educate others that nicotine is not the cause of cancer and other diseases, it is the combustion of plant material, and the additives, that do that.
As an older person, it is also encouraging to me that researchers are finding benefits relating to Alzheimers et al to be found in nicotine itself.

Yeah, my aunt is very demented, she will tell her kids; ‘it is nice you came, do give my love to your mom and dad.’
My father is alive and kicking again and she wants to go home to her mom.
The horror :scream:

All the more reason that the research must continue.
We need help for those affected.

Schizophrenics are known to smoke a lot more, nicotine might actually help them

Yep, it’s quite a useful substance which is why there is now a War on Nicotine.
There’s a shitload of money to be made from all them diseases that they can’t cure.
The pill business is huge, you can’t have something simple like nicotine spoil all that nice profit.
We are governed by greed, that’s why we’re going down the drain.

You know something… if the dangers of tobacco smoking were known in the 1780’s, I promise you George Washington would have banned it. Even though it was a big money making crop for the new country, the Founding Fathers truly cared about this nation and its’ people, and would have acted responsibly. I know this is way of a stretch, but it is a true shame that there was a time, hundreds of years ago, that the government actually cared. I am fairly confident your government would have acted appropriately a few hundred years ago too. It is a shame to see public health, safety, and well being constantly trampled on by the greed of those who are in power. Everywhere…

I’m saddened and no longer surprised by these ridiculous drug commercials constantly being foisted upon me when I am trying to watch a show, or a race. 15 seconds are spent on the drug’s supposed benefits, and the remaining 90 seconds are spent on warnings and side-effects. And the actors’ who portray individuals who have been set free by the latest wonder drug are complicit; I don’t care that they are simply ‘trying to make a living by acting’. One minute, rubbing a limb in pure agony watching rain pelt the window, sepia toned dreariness and the undeniable fog of death settling upon them, the next minute frolicking with grandchildren in a sunny field with rainbows and star-farting unicorns. Fuck that, and fuck Big Pharma.

This is another reason DVR’s exist.

I have my story, as so many do, about this. Too long and out of scope for this thread but you are so right.

Sadly (again with the sad), people are such sheep that many of them want it. My wife’s shameful parents are on a multitude of pills daily. Some are intended to treat whatever fake illness they think they have, and the rest of the supporting cast of bottled wonders are there to offset side effects brought on by the pills they don’t need that treat a condition they don’t have. And they absolutely love it. Their church groups give them sympathy. You and I are paying for their full time disability (that they do not have). They get all sort of charity, sympathy, kid-glove treatment, and they are all too happy to be treated like children. We do not speak to them anymore. They are literally in poorer health than they were before they started pumping themselves full of all this magic bullshit.

Unfortunately, that is a pattern repeated time and again in this pathetic society.

Yeah, I got carried away too. I usually get a bit long-winded when I begin to rant against BP.

With the assistance of guberment, corporate entities have decimated the health care industry. Very soon all health care will be owned and controlled by the corporation. Insurance providers have simply become the third leg of the complex. The game is over.

She has a point. Torture is only torture if the receiver is not enjoying it. Sort of like speeding isn’t speeding if you don’t get caught. If you take a paddle to someone’s rear end and they smile and ask for more, you’re only torturing yourself at that point. Um, well, or so I hear.
