The Propaganda Machine
Yet another fight against corruption -- Return to main page
he machinery used by the WHO to spread misinformation about tobacco basically is the same well-oiled one used by the anti-tobacco cartel, and so is basically the rhetoric.
So far, however, the rhetoric is more detached and "professional" than the one used by the vociferous organizations in countries such as the US and Canada. This is mainly due to the WHO's international nature, and to the fact that many countries are not yet "biting"on the anti-tobacco lures. This, however, may change with time, as the WHO and the international Cartel will show local politicians how to gain power and profit from fraud, lies and the persecution of a segment of the population of their own countries. After all, the persecution of tobacco and its users has already become one of the largest commercial enterprises in the history of mankind.
Maternal Smoking: no significant association with disease
A CROOKED CLOCK OF FRAUDS
Wild guesses are presented to the world as if they were real
In the links that follow, we invite the reader to compare the assertions and the attitude of the WHO with the one of the anti-tobacco cartels acting at national level. The reader will find no difference. This makes the WHO the epitome of the anti-smoking industry.
The same "out-of-the-blue" epidemiological statements, designed to appeal to emotions as opposed to reason.
The same sentences that are as resounding and rhetorical as they are slippery, such as "Tobacco kills."(alcohol, cars, and a myriad of human activities also kill, but do we need an international campaign against them all?)
The same misleading statistical conclusions about the "premature death"of smokers.
The same distortion of the definition of addiction, such as: "Tobacco products are highly addictive."
The same highly questionable statements, clearly of pharmaceutical industry matrix, such as: "proven treatment methods work." This is not just a false statement, but the word "treatment" implies the highly insidious and socially divisive notion that "smokers are sick."
When comparing the real epidemics the WHO is supposed to fight with the artificially created tobacco epidemic, the world should begin to wonder WHO is the sick one in this dispicable scenario of greed and profit. Or, perhaps, the world should realize that the WHO is infested internally, and that it is necessary to intervene and sanitizethis organization before more damage is done to integrity -- but especially to the fight against real epidemics -- by the diversion of an immense amount of funds and resources to anti-tobacco.
SETTING THE STAGE...
THE STAGE IS SET: LET THE LOOTING BEGIN!
THOSE WHO DISAGREE WITH THE WHO's POLITICS CAN EITHER LEAVE...
... OR GET INTIMIDATED BY THE ANTI-TOBACCO CARTEL
THE EVER-GROWING "EPIDEMIC" IS BUILT BY COMPUTER...
In pure anti-tobacco cartel fashion, the "death toll" of tobacco keeps growing each time the WHO makes an official statement: from the unproven 3 million guess of 1998, to the aggrandized 3.5 million of 1999, growing to a nice round 4 million in the same year, to the mega-galactic 10 million annually projected by the year 2010! Differently than malaria, AIDS, and other realepidemics, this is not an actual body count. This is the output of computers programmed to speculate on a possible death number proceeding from assumptions that link all kinds of disease to tobacco, even if there is NO ESTABLISHED CAUSALITY.
In fact, these are the same trashy and highly criticized assumptions and methodology used in the United States to create the infamous 400,000 deaths-a-year figure. This figure has ABSOLUTELY NO FOUNDATION IN REALITY. Nevertheless, the same assumptions are now applied at world level.
This corruption of politics and scientific integrity speaks for itself -- and for the WHO.
1998: 3 MILLION "VICTIMS"
1999: 3.5 MILLION "VICTIMS"
1999: 4 MILLION "VICTIMS"
2010: 10 MILLION "VICTIMS"
SF Tobacco Free Coalition and the Ralph Nader-affiliated group Essential Action:
OOPS AGAIN? 10 MILLION IN 2025, BUT 100 MILLION IN THE NEXT 30 YEARS (!)
2050: ONE BILLION?![1 in 8 deaths out of (an estimaded?) population of 8 billion] -- or is it 750 MILLION (if the population does not change much?)
It is quite clear that the number of "victims" keeps growingto impress the public. In fact, in the same year we can see an increment of 500,000 "victims" from two different sources, and a discrepancy of 3 MILLION for the same time period (today) between WHO and Int. J of CANCER!
With the 2010's 10 million-victim "goal," the WHO has laid out the grounds for a continuously increasing scare tactic: each year or so, about one more million "victims" will be spat out by their computers simply by altering the assumptionsto obtain the desired results.
If not enough countries "bite" on the lure of political and financial returns proposed by the cartel, it is even possible (actually VERYprobable) that the WHO will "admit a mistake," and drum that the "victim" count is actually 20 million -- or more.
After all, it does not cost much to alter assumptions fed into computers, and then to let these computers perform their statistical magic. But everybody knows the first law of computers: trash in...
...WHILE THE WORLD BANK PUTS PRESSURE ON THE THIRD WORLD
...AND THE FRAMING OF THE TOBACCO INDUSTRY IS FAST PROCEEDING
