There is a very quick and very easy way to make cigarettes 90% less deadly.
All that you have to do is leave the anti-smoker's hysteria laden, propaganda filled, world of make believe and made-up science and enter the real world of real people and real facts.
CDC says here: http://apps.nccd.cdc.gov/sammec/Help/glossary_hp.asp
Relative Risk for Smoking-Related Deaths =
The mortality rate for current or former smokers divided by the mortality rate for never smokers.
Thus the mortality rate for current or former smokers for a disease is the number of never smoker deaths multiplied by the RR.
Anti-smokers such as The American Cancer Society and the CDC claim that the male smoker lung cancer death RR is 23.3!!!
According to The Lung Cancer Alliance's count of real people; http://www.lungcanceralliance.org/docum ... t_2008.pdf
15% of the 157,000 lung cancer deaths(LCD's) occur to never smokers, that is 23,550, and 35% occur to current smokers,that is 55,000.
About 1/2th of those deaths would be males and that gives us 11,775 male never-smoker deaths and 27,475 male current smokers lung cancer deaths.
Since there are 11,775 never-smoker male LCD's, the number of current smoker LCD's claimed by the anti-smokers is 11,775 X 23.3 and that is 274,358. The 'real world' number of male smoker LCD's is 27,475 and that is only 10% of the antis claimed number of LCD's, 274,358.
That gives us cigarettes that are 90% less deadly in the 'real world' than in the antis world!!!!
