Reality Check

OK, I'm on my soapbox again. If you look back to the 3/7 post, "Cancer Sticks", you know just how much I hate smoking and yes I did send out my postcards, for all the good that it will do, but it makes me feel better. You see it's not just because I see smoking as a disgusting habit, but I am also repulsed by the way the scheming tobacco companies do their filthy business. Go to the follow link to learn more:
There you'll see the quote by a tobacco industry executive, "If you are really and truly not going to sell to children you are going to be out of business in 30 years."

Here's some other facts from the site:
*The tobacco industry spends $11.22 BILLION a year trying to get us to smoke.
*Smoking kills more people than aids, murder, drugs, suicide, alcohol and car crashes.
*The number of people that start smoking at or before the age 18 is almost 90%.
*Ammonia is added to cigarettes to make the nicotine reach the brain faster to make people crave it even more.

You see.........the way they do business is just as horrible as the addiction they are peddling.
Big money equals no conscious.
