Centers for Disease Control and Prevention seem to not know what a
typical cigarette is.

"TUESDAY, June 1 (HealthDay News) -- American cigarettes could pack a
more toxic punch than foreign brands, say researchers at the U.S.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In one of the first studies of its kind, researchers compared the levels
of tobacco-specific nitrosamines -- a main carcinogenic component of
tobacco -- in cigarette butts and in smokers from several countries.

******* These "researchers" have crafted incomplete, misleading and
deceptive results. This cannot be accidental. The phrase "tobacco
specific nitrosamines" gives away the problem.

How the CDC, in addressing cancer, can ignore all the cancer-causing
pesticide residues in typical cigarettes, the dioxin-creating chlorine
chemicals and the chlorine-bleached paper, the carcinogenic levels of
radiation from certain Still Legal phosphate fertilizers, and the little
fact that a typical cigarette may not even be made from tobacco is a
question. It's a question the CDC cannot answer, and certainly does not
care to be asked.

The dioxins (from industrial chlorine, impossible from tobacco or any
plant) are not only cancer-causing themselves, they are "promoters" of
cancer, accelerating the cell damage. The CDC has no problem with
that---preferring to cast the blame onto Mother Nature's un-patented,
conveniently "sinful", tobacco and nicotine. Un-informed, un-protected,
secretly-poisoned smokers are also blamed, of course. Big Chlorine
(pesticides,
paper pulp, etc.) is off the hook again. Its license to poison, kill,
and evade liabilities and criminal consequences has not yet been
revoked. This epidemic situation regarding "studies" of "smoking" and
"tobacco" represents easily the most widespread corruption of medical
science in history. That "tobacco kills" has been made a tenet of
corporate religion. That Industrially-Contaminated Smoking Products is
the big killer is heresy.


By this routine disregard for chlorine in typical cigarettes, and the
resultant high levels of dioxin in the smoke, everyone, not just
smokers, remains endangered by chlorine and dioxin. Everyone's tax
dollars pay for the bogus "science" and illegitimate subsequent laws.
Chlorine keeps its "good name". It's as if Rachel Carson never lived.

If there are more of those nitrosamines in U.S. cigarettes, it
can only come from is the nicotine extract added to the cigarettes if
they
contain tobacco or not. Manufacturers require uniform nicotine levels in

each cigarette. They cannot depend on tobacco leaves having uniform
levels.

This his is about adding something to the products...not about some
mysteriously more potent tobacco plants.

As for the FDA--- The FDA is specifically forbidden by the "tobacco
regulation" law from doing anything about the agricultural parts of the
cigarette industry. True. The FDA may not set foot on a tobacco farm
to see the 450 or so different pesticides registered for tobacco use.
The FDA many not test a cigarette, or a smoking victim, for agricultural
chemicals. The FDA cannot stick a Geiger Counter into the
fertilizers.
The FDA may not visit any Curing Sheds to see the pesticides used
there. And---the FDA, apparently, cannot even look at all the kinds of

agricultural waste cellulose, none likely organic, used, in patented
ways, to make fake
tobacco.
