The latest actions of the US FDA against Chantix are well justified, but insufficient. For those who are not yet aware, Chantix is a killer smoking cessation drug no different than Zyban. It just kills in a different way. It should be removed from the market as it is an unnecessary drug to treat a non-existing disease. Unlike those fraudulent attributed to cigarettes, the deaths that Chantix causes are real and as monofactorial as a gun bullet or a hanging rope. It helps to point out that the effects of Chantix may be almost immediate, and this article from last November describes just some.
“Suicide was reported 55 times. Suicidal thoughts were mentioned in 199 cases and 417 people complained of depression.
There were hundreds of mentions of anger, aggression, amnesia, hallucination and homicidal thoughts.
In California, Chad Huber was arrested after an allegedly unprovoked bar fight. His wife said the father of 6-year-old twins was never violent until starting Chantix.
An FDA spokesperson confirmed they are looking into 100 specific psychotic incidents in the United States.
Even before Albrecht’s death, the FDA said they had planned an investigation based on complaints in Europe where Pfizer sold the drug as Champix since 2006. “
Just the figures above are a sad reminder of how ignorant too many smokers really are: when they believe antismoking propaganda; when they try to fit the "new society", a product of scientific fraud and perverse values, instead of fighting to set it straight again; when they "believe" corrupt "public health" authorities; when they give in to fear.
It all boils down to this: you just don’t screw around with your brain – and nor should “public health”.
Smoking is not a disease and none of the diseases “attributed” by dishonest health authorities has ever been scientifically demonstrated to be caused by smoking. “Public health” institutions have become publicly-funded, mouthpieces of the pharmaceutical industry. An industry that wants to obtain tobacco prohibition in the next decade so that nicotine becomes the monopoly of the pharmaceutical crooks that pay off "health" commissions and politicians.
There is nothing wrong with smoking, except in the minds of fanatics and bigots, and in both cases they are to be dismissed as such. The real problem is that people die with these pharmaceutical marketing experiments. Another big problem is that the aforementioned fanatics and bigots are in control of public health institutions, governments and medical associations.
