Sue the Pharmers.

ASH have proved conclusively, beyond all doubt, that the tiniest trace of nicotine is lethal.

The Pharmers who fund ASH insist that we buy patches loaded with concentrations of nicotine that could never be achieved on skin by even a chainsmoker, and that we chew gum laced with this evil, deadly compound.

ASH have therefore proved that the pharmaceutical companies are deliberately setting out to kill their customers. Third hand smoke, even more than second hand smoke, proves that the Pharmers are deliberately selling a product known to be dangerous in concentrations far in excess of those shown to be lethal.

Let them win this one, I say. Let them convince as many as possible of third hand smoke. I'll even help with that.

Then let the Pharmers defend their patches and gum in court, against a jury fully indoctrinated with ASH propaganda. Let those Pharmers claim they did not know, even though ASH are their favourite money sink. Let's see ASH 'scientists' worm their way out of their claims that 'traces of nicotine are lethal' while their funders are in the dock for selling huge doses over the counter, no prescription, no control, no enforcement of any age limits. Let's see what ASH have to say about their pushing of NRT products they have, themselves, demonstrated to be lethal.

Let them win. Then sue the pants off their paymasters using their own 'proof'. They cannot defend against that action without admitting that everything they have said has been absolute lies.

The truth? Oh, let's not bother about all that. They don't want to hear it anyway.

Let's just play their game, their way.

ASH will probably claim that encouraging nicotine patches for smokers was 'for the better good'. A bit like blasting your body with radiation and chemo in order to cure you but at the same time damaging good parts of you.

These patches worked for me though. I put one over each eye and couldn't find my ciggies.

Sadly, I can see it going a different way:
Pharmas will just explain that their product is not lethal, because of the adjunction of a small quantity of the new compound uslessine to the mix.
Then they will use this "research" to market a new line of hygiene products containing uslessine. And maybe even detergent companies will jump on the bandwagon and sell expensive washing powders that contain some.
And they will make even more money from the gullible.

Critical thinking is no longer taught in schools. This is to the government's interest as it allows them to pass all theses stupid and oppressive laws that people just accept and no longer have the tools to analyze.
And now big business interests are waking up to this and using that to make pot loads of money. With which they will lobby the government into passing more idiotic laws and backing "research" to help them fleece the population even more efficiently.

The experiment.

"To simulate the effects of thirdhand smoke, a T-shirt was deliberately impregnated with nicotine, the main toxic ingredient of cigarettes, just like during a smoker's break on the balcony"

"The Hohenstein Institute press release states: "the scientists at the IHB used a specially developed cell culture model of baby skin - a 3D skin model, the cell composition, structure and properties of which imitate the skin of babies and toddlers"

"And that press release does not come from objective scientists, but from a crazy institution that is aiming to sell textiles that claim to neutralize the toxins in cigarette smoke and can be sold to hysterical parents who are worried that their kids might be harmed just by touching their clothes.

The same institution which is aiming to sell the protective clothing for smokers is today boasting about a new type of floor mop."

Getting the facts right about NRT – exploding the myths
"Commenting on the research, Professor Robert West, Professor of Health Psychology, Cancer Research UK said, “The confusion surrounding nicotine, shown by these survey results, present a barrier to NRT which can double a smoker’s chances of quitting successfully. It is essential that people are provided with the facts and that healthcare professionals are accurate with the language of nicotine and smoking”.

Can't wait to see the NRT people slug it out with ASH.

It gets worse

Study raises concerns about outdoor second-hand smoke
"To put that number into context, a widely cited study has determined that an average cotinine level of 0.4 ng/ml increases lung cancer deaths by 1 for every 1,000 people and increases heart disease deaths by 1 for every 100 people."

Dietary nicotine: a source of urinary cotinine - 1991
"Foods, principally from plants in the family Solanaceae, and a number of teas were examined for the presence of nicotine.

A range of potential values for urinary cotinine concentrations (0.6 to 6.2 ng/ml) was calculated based upon estimated average and maximal consumptions of these foods and beverages.

Because of the potential for exposure to nicotine by way of these routes, the use of urinary cotinine as a biomarker of exposure to environmental tobacco smoke may be compromised."


"Many plants of the Solanaceae family, which includes the genus Nicotiana, of which the tobacco
plant is a member, contain solanesol; particularly those that contain trace amounts of nicotine.
These include the tomato, eggplant, potato, and pepper.

The potential interference due to these sources is negligible, cooking being the only likely potential source of interference. An interference of this type would bias results high, overestimating the contribution of ETS to RSP.

If this isn't sorted out soon we could all be sitting ducks for GM.

GM... hadn't seen a connection before.

If people can be made scared of nicotine, then told it's also in the staples of their diet, they will clamour for its removal. The only way is GM. A long game but a logical one.

Once GM is accepted, there is no limit. Anything goes.

I need to dig over my last bit of lawn.
