Lies, Damned Lies & 400,000 Smoking-Related Deaths
by Robert A. Levy and Rosalind B. Marimont
Robert A. Levy and Rosalind Marimont have written a new blasting analysis on the lies about the statistical fraud represented by the 400,000 "deaths" caused by tobacco smoking. The analysis is published by the Cato Institute journal "REGULATION."
The 400,000-deaths figure is not a body count, but a COMPUTER-GENERATED estimate based on assumptions that are heavily biased by a political agenda of lies and loot. In different times, the people perpetrating this fraud, and their promoters, would have been arrested and charged on many counts. But not today, when these criminals are protected at the highest political level.
More and more evidence emerges every day against the frauds of the anti-tobacco cartel. Read this powerful analysis. Download it. Distribute it to as many people as you can. People must know the truth. Consider it your duty as a citizen. People must know that there is a criminal endeavor designed to instigate persecution in society in order to extort billions of dollars from smokers, who are already carrying a greater fiscal burden than non-smokers are.
