U.S. Medical Science Corrupted By Chlorine Cartel

How The Left Serves the Corporatocracy
(2 comments) It may be impossible, noting the trillions of dollars at stake, that Insurance Industry PR agents have not created fake "universal health care" groups etc. It's hard to tell if any such groups are legit. But, by their ineffectiveness, by their repetition of the word "affordable, by their lack of fruit, shall you know them.

Why The FDA "Tobacco Control" Act is Bad Law
(2 comments) The recently-enacted law giving the FDA power to "control tobacco"---but not the deadliest parts of typical cigarettes---is bad law. It may sound wholesome, progressive and even "green", but a loot at the details shows otherwise.

The Pesticide Industry Protection and Dioxin-Ignoring Act
(1 comments) The current push to have the FDA "regulate tobacco"...risks of inhaling any particulate matter from any kind of smoke notwithstanding...is a descendant of Reefer Madness cannabis Prohibition of another public-domain natural plant...and for the benefit of the same chemical, oil, chlorine, etc industries. It's not For Our Health, as they put on the label.

Our Stolen Evidence...Against the Pesticide/Dioxin Cartel
(4 comments) The supposedly wholesome anti tobacco crusade is not what it seems. For just one thing, just about every disease known to be caused by pesticides and dioxin are now blamed on "smoking"...though no plant, even tobacco, is capable of causing such a plague. This is a theft of evidence against the industrial chemical industries. It is a global scale evasion of PR disasters and liabilities, and criminal charges.
