How do you like this – May 31st is no tobacco day?

This e-mail arrived unsolicited in one of our partners e-mail  in-box – he doesn’t even work in the Industry.

Nice to know others are taking care of our well-being!

“Wouldn’t the world be a better place if we could all just “say no” to
tobacco? That’s what World No Tobacco Day on Sunday, May 31st is all
about.

According to the World Health Organization, by 2030, if current trends
continue, smoking will kill one in every six people around the world,
not to mention the financial toll that it takes.

In the United States alone, smoking cost $193 billion in 2004,
including $97 billion in lost productivity and $96 billion in direct
health care expenditures.

A more accurate name for this event would be World No Tobacco Propaganda Day, as the event does nothing to reduce tobacco use, but rather serves as a day for anti tobacco extremists to join forces with like minded politicians to promote themselves by propagandizing against all things tobacco and by misleading the public to believe that all tobacco products are equally hazardous.
