The Studies The Who Doesn't Want You To See

Yet another fight against corruption -- Return to main page

or over thirty years now the anti-tobacco cartel has desperately tried to prove with actual science that smoking is a powerful threat to health. To that end, immense private and public funding has been diverted to universities and other research centers to find tangible causality of disease.

As years went by without finding any substantial evidence, the invention of second hand smoke dangers salvaged the situation, as for the first time a smoker could be painted as a danger to others. As the hysteria grew, so did the diversion of money to the cartel. Thanks to this increased money supply, various unsubstantiated statistical associations between disease and tobacco could be mass-produced. The more the statistical associations grew, the more the money supply increased.

Scientific, political and legal careers, professional reputations, notoriety, immense fortunes changing hands, jobs, new institutions, bureaucrats -- an entire parasitic economy that is greater than the budget of many countries has been built on the foundations of this scientific fraud.

It is not surprising that the WHO is now the vehicle to expand this economy of loot at global level. But reality has not changed: while the WHO is barking its absurd tobacco-related mortality figures based on statistical assumptions dictated by a political agenda, real science still has no proof for the WHO's claims.

Ironically, this applies to the WHO's own studies. No matter how they massage the data, reset risk thresholds; regardless of the propaganda and the highly resounding statements, not even those politically motivated statistical studies which the WHO itself has done have shown the existence of statistically significant risks in smoking.

This reality is becoming more and more conspicuous each day, as more and more uncorrupted voices rise louder and louder against this scientific heresy. This is the reason why the WHO, now representing both the coinciding interests of the anti-tobacco cartel and the pharmaceutical industry, is trying to accelerate the pace of hysteria and prohibition, and get the anti-tobacco scam well established internationally. In order to survive, the anti-tobacco economy needs to expand just like any other economy. The premature intrusion of reality would not only destroy this economy, but spell political devastation for too many parties that have irrevocably exposed themselves.

And most likely, it would spell prison sentences for many corrupted scientists and activists responsible for this pandemic of corruption. The international anti-tobacco cartel is well aware of this state of affairs, and it does the only thing possible: go forward.

THE WITHHELD STUDY ON ETS - "The world's leading health organisation has withheld from publication a study which shows that not only might there be no link between passive smoking and lung cancer but that it could even have a protective effect." - This is how the British press announced its discovery that the largest statistical study on Environmental Tobacco Smoke and lung cancer did not yield the desired results -- and it was buried. Forced to admit its existence by the press, the WHO denied the allegations (some of the personnel even denied the existence of the study), and insisted that statistically insignificant relative risk factors were significant. The anti-tobacco cartel filed a complaint with the U.K. Press Complaints Commission against the Telegraph, alleging it had misrepresented the results of the WHO study. The Telegraph stuck by its story and by October l998 the Commission found for the Telegraph and rejected cartel's complaint. By then the WHO study had been published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute (October, l998) and the Telegraph was vindicated.

SMOKED OUT: Anti-Tobacco Activism at the World Bank -- A review of: Curbing The Epidemic: Governments And The Economics Of Tobacco Control, World Bank, 1999 -- - Scathing review of the about the World Bank report that, like everything related to anti-tobacco, has very little to do with reality and much to do with a political agenda of frauds, political and economic schizophrenia, and economic extortion of smokers. The report, written by Richard Tren and Hugh High, is published by the INSTITUTE OF ECONOMIC AFFAIRS

THE US FEDERAL COURT DECISION ON THE EPA'S CLASSIFICATION OF ETS - "A U.S. federal court has ruled that the Environmental Protection Agency wrongly declared secondhand tobacco smoke a dangerous carcinogen." - At the time this decision seemd to spell the end of the Cartel. In spite (maybe because) of this, prohibition to smoke has accelerated -- with the blessing and the recommendation of the WHO.

THE MONICA STUDY ON SMOKING AND HEART: NO LINK - "The largest ever cardiology study has failed to find a link between heart attacks and the classic risk factors, such as smoking and high cholesterol levels. The Monica study, which assessed 21 countries over 10 years, [...] could find no statistical connection between the reduction and changes in obesity, smoking..." - Once again, even in front of its own evidence the WHO, along with the rest of the anti-tobacco cartel, insists that smoking causesheart disease.

TRENDS IN THE INCIDENCE OF MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION AND IN MORTALITY DUE TO CORONARY HEART DISEASE, 1987 TO 1994 - "Notwithstanding the sharp decrease in smoking, the rate of hospitalization for Coronary Heart Disease has actually increased" - But the WHO keeps insisting that smoking causesheart disease.

MAJOR IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer) STUDY SHOWS THAT SECONDHAND SMOKE POSES NO CANCER RISK TO CHILDREN - "Children who are exposed to second-hand smoke in their homes are not at increased risk of cancer, according to a 10-year study commissioned by the International Agency for Research on Cancer. The study, conducted in Europe, had been eagerly awaited because it involved a large sample of individuals and special attempts had been made to minimize misclassifications and control for various factors." - But the WHO insists that second hand smoke is a danger to children, and lobbies all countries to outlaw the right to smoke in public.

UICC WORKSHOP ON EVALUATING INTERVENTIONS TO REDUCE CANCER RISK - This 10 year-old (but still very contemporary) document reports on the weak to nil (and at any rate, utterly inconclusive) effects of "interventions to reduce cancer risks". Here, while the anti-tobacco dogma is clearly stated in the introductory paragraphs, implying that smoking is absolutely known to cause cancer, the paper proceeds to summarize the studies examined. After the population object of the studies was "educated" against the terrible effects of smoking and "bad food", tobacco consumption decreased dramatically in all cases against the group that was not "educated." Similarly, feeding habits were modified. The results ranged from no change to moderate change in the incidence of cancer in the "educated" population. In some cases, the "educated" group showed an increase in disease. But the WHO most emphatically insists that smoking causescancer.
