    Great 1860 tobacco article atlantic mon

    This is a fascinating article on tobacco and tobacco use in the Atlantic Monthly magazine from way back in 1860 (yes, 1860). I found it interesting that most of the chemicals in tobacco were already known and documented. It is also enlightening to read the various ways different countries preferred different forms of tobacco. This is not a short article.

    • I'll see your "Rosalind Marimont" and raise you the entire actuarial industry. I'm going to go with the free market on this one, and say that if smokers live longer, their life insurance wouldn't be more expensive. I seriously doubt that the actuaries are coming up with their numbers based on political motivations.

      ---------------

      Absolutely hysterical, fruitcake

      By my estimation its been 143 years since 1860, hence, over 570 MILLION people have died as a result of SHS (143 times 400,000 per year)

      Looking at these numbers it appears that Lasr was right, 33 people really do die per puff

      P.S. President Kerry will straighten all this out once hes elected

        and BTW, it is 53,000 SHS deaths a year
        400,000 is the amount of dead from smoking
