Tobacco news, articles and information:
|5/28/2014 - For many children living in agricultural regions of the U.S., working in the fields after school or during the summer is a great way to learn the value of hard work, while earning some extra spending money. However, a new report by Human Rights Watch (HRW) has uncovered a dirty little secret of the...|
|3/21/2014 - If politicians and law enforcement are so eager to protect Americans from themselves, then they should break in and raid people's homes, taking their boxes of sugar cookies, sugar cereals and sugar jars instead, because, frankly, sugar is way more dangerous and addictive than pot. The American majority...|
|2/8/2014 - Which "drug" store do you buy your cigarettes from? Is it Rite Aid, Walgreens, Wal-Mart, Target, Kroger or CVS? Do you ask for extra-strength nicotine or do the packages not say how much you're getting? Isn't it kind of strange that the stores (pharmacies) of America, that are supposed to help you get...|
|12/17/2013 - Have you ever wondered why cigarettes don't go out in heavy wind and why they burn so evenly, all the way from one end to the other? Could it be that plastic particles are woven into the rolling paper to make your nicotine delivery device more efficient? Cellulose acetate is a form of plastic that's...|
|10/26/2013 - It's amazing that research funded by the tobacco industry was ever accepted and published by medical journals. But evidently, it's been going on for some time. The research bought and paid for mostly focuses on attempting to debunk concerns about second hand smoke.
According to the Journal of Health...|
|10/3/2013 - I bet you didn't know that nicotine in commercial cigarettes is up to 35 times stronger than it was in the 1950's and early 1960's, before Big Tobacco (Marlboro and Kool) started using ammonia to free-base it. That is the number one reason why 95% of smokers who try to quit without help will return...|
|6/10/2013 - Smoke herbicide and pesticide all day and what do you get? You get a recurring hangover that seemingly needs a new blast of nicotine to quell or "dissipate," but in actuality, the only thing the nicotine does is stave off the headache, the nervousness, the anxiety, the "chemical hangover," and after...|
|3/22/2013 - Studies done in the UK looked at the top broadcast network TV shows, most aimed at kids, over a given period of time, and found that 34 percent contained some sort of tobacco content.
They were looking for actual or implied tobacco use, the presence of smoking products, and other references to smoking...|
|2/24/2013 - First, let's investigate part of that formula. What do you get when you mix ammonia with bleach and burn it? You get a toxic fire that doesn't go out in heavy wind. When you inhale (inward drag on a cigarette), you get a fire that burns at up to 1,700 degrees at the tip of the cigarette. Here, you have...|
|2/6/2013 - The best metaphor for the smoking addiction and how it has gotten so many millions of people hooked is gambling. Gambling is a major addiction in the United States for many people. They go to Atlantic City or Las Vegas and bet their whole paycheck, sometimes cash advances on credit, or worse, their...|
|2/2/2013 - Graphic pictorial warning labels on tobacco products may make it significantly easier for people to quit smoking, particularly those from disadvantaged racial or economic groups, according to a study published in the journal PLOS ONE.

|12/12/2012 - The vast majority of the $246 billion rolling settlement awarded to all 50 U.S. states as part of the 1998 Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement is apparently being spent on things other than the anti-smoking programs and campaigns for which the money was intended, according to a new report. Entitled...|
|9/12/2012 10:29:39 PM - There was a time when manufacturers of the infamous pesticide chemical DDT and the herbicide chemical weapon "Agent Orange" actually tried to claim that these two toxins were completely safe for human exposure, a contention that the world now knows is completely false. And today, these same companies...|
|9/7/2012 - (This article is jointly authored by Mike Adams of NaturalNews.com and Anthony Gucciardi of NaturalSociety.com) Over the last several days, the mainstream media has fallen for an elaborate scientific hoax that sought to destroy the credibility of organic foods by claiming they are "no healthier" than...|
|8/29/2012 - Cigarette filters may look like harmless cotton bound up in a tight little roll surrounded by yellow paper, but filters are specifically designed and manufactured with a plastic called cellulose acetate, used to accumulate smoke components and toxic chemicals. First of all, nicotine cannot be delivered...|
|8/17/2012 - Besides testing the effectiveness of cancer treatments on the cancer, additional assessments are in place to ensure that the treatment design is effectively meeting the needs of the patients.

|1/22/2012 6:22:40 AM - Your central nervous system is susceptible to disorders from the chemicals in food, drinks, candy, gum and the environment, but when you smoke gene-altered tobacco which contains pesticide inside the plant itself, your body is broken down and desperate for relief, setting you up for the 20 minute "cure"...|
|1/10/2012 - Tobacco is some kind of "devil weed," only good for making chemical-laden products like cigarettes, known to promote cancer. At least, that's the current take on this plant. But that's certainly not the whole truth about tobacco, which has been used historically by many cultures both in religious rituals...|
|12/11/2011 - The truth is that most pack-a-day smokers are hooked and cannot figure out how to quit, mainly because most cessation methods don't address the true depth of the addiction, and most are just scams that are marketed by "Big Pharma" to damage your health even further and send any "ex-smokers" right back...|
|6/23/2011 - The FDA has released nine new graphic warning labels that will be required on U.S. cigarettes, offering grotesque visual images designed to dissuade smokers from purchasing cigarettes.

|5/30/2011 1:21:41 AM - Smoking kills 6 million people every year around the world, and more than half a million non-smokers get affected from second hand smoke.

|12/23/2010 - In what can only be called a bizarre leap of pseudoscience, U.S. Surgeon General Dr Regina M. Benjamin recently announced that smoking one cigarette can kill you. In fact, she says, just breathing in the smoke from someone else's cigarette can kill you, she claims. It's all part of a just-released report...|
|11/27/2010 - Tobacco companies may be bypassing marketing bans by secretly posting promotional videos online, according to a study conducted by researchers from the University of Otago, New Zealand, and published in the journal Tobacco Control.

|6/12/2009 - There's no other word to describe it: The U.S. Senate's tobacco control bill is pathetic. It bans candy cigarettes and fruit-flavored cigarettes, but doesn't even require cigarette companies to disclose the ingredients they use until nearly a year-and-a-half later. The bill bans the use of the word...|
|6/12/2009 - This article originally ran on NaturalNews in 2007, but given the recent passage of a "tobacco control bill" by the U.S. Senate, it deserves repeating.

|5/24/2009 - Chinese health officials are advocating for laws requiring the placement photos or other graphic images onto cigarette cartons in order to warn people about the risks of smoking.

|9/16/2008 - It's difficult to imagine that cigarettes and lies have any connection with pet food -- but when you look closely at the advertising tactics of some pet foods, look closely at the ingredients in those pet foods -- you'll find cigarettes, lies, and pet food fits perfectly together.
To give you an...|
|7/31/2008 - The U.S. Congress has just voted to categorize tobacco as a drug, handing the FDA regulatory authority to control the advertising, marketing and sales of cigarettes.
