If cigarettes kill, why do tobacco giants still wield so much power?

Thirty years ago, after making a series of controversial documentaries on smoking, including Dying for a Fag (1975) and A Dying Industry (1980), I wrote Smoke Ring the Politics of Tobacco, outlining an industry denying the medical evidence linking cigarettes to deadly diseases with a smokescreen of deception and lies. For many years, the tobacco industry’s response to questions on health was that it was not qualified to comment. That was British American Tobacco’s line when I interviewed one of its executives, Alan Long, in Brazil in 1980. «I am not a medical man and therefore... Read More.

Hookah smoking: is it safer than cigarettes? — mayo clinic

Hookah smoking is not safer than cigarette smoking. Also known as narghile, shisha and goza, a hookah is a water pipe with a smoke chamber, a bowl, a pipe and a hose. Specially made tobacco is heated, and the smoke passes through water and is then drawn through a rubber hose to a mouthpiece. The tobacco is no less toxic in a hookah pipe, and the water in the hookah does not filter out the toxic ingredients in the tobacco smoke. Hookah smokers may actually inhale more tobacco smoke than cigarette smokers do because of the large volume of smoke they inhale in one smoking session, which can last... Read More.

Webinar: regulating e-cigarettes in the european union
