05/31/2004 Entry: "Smoking, ew"

Smoke, smoke, smoke that cigarette

"The new report, issued Thursday by Surgeon General Richard H. Carmona, concludes that in addition to the many other diseases listed in the intervening years, smoking can cause cancers of the cervix, kidney, pancreas and stomach, as well as abdominal aortic aneurysms, acute myeloid leukemia, cataracts, pneumonia and gum disease."
U.S. Lengthens the List of Diseases Linked to Smoking, by Elizabeth Olson, NY Times, May 28, 2004

"He declined to offer an opinion about pending legislation that would give the Food and Drug Administration regulatory authority over tobacco, about state initiatives to ban indoor smoking and about whether the administration plans to send the international treaty on tobacco control to the Senate for ratification.

"This reluctance contrasted sharply with his congressional testimony last year. He made headlines then by saying he would 'support banning or abolishing tobacco products . . . I see no need for any tobacco products in society.'"
More Diseases Linked to Smoking. Surgeon General Presents Strong Report, Keeps Quiet on Tobacco Policy, by Marc Kaufman, Washington Post, May 28, 2004

Hm, no comment, except I'm glad, after about 12 years of trying, I was able to finally quit in 1989 when Pall Malls (Reds) went to $2.25/pack and I was smoking more than a pack a day. And, yes, I am that old, thank you very much.
