    Tobacco May Kill 1 Billion This Century


    WASHINGTON (AP) - Curbing tobacco use and taking other steps to eliminate some of the most common risk factors for cancer could save millions of lives over the next few decades, health officials said Monday.

    Tobacco alone is predicted to kill a billion people this century, 10 times the toll it took in the 20th century, if current trends hold.


    "In all of world history, this is the largest train wreck not waiting to happen," said John Seffrin, chief executive officer of the American Cancer Society.


    Reducing tobacco use would have the single largest effect on global cancer rates, Seffrin and other health officials said Monday in unveiling two reference guides that chart global tobacco use and cancer.

    It's very sad that tobacco has such nasty sides. I'm not a smoker myself but I will be damned if I'll tell someone how to live their life. The statistics are very alarming and shows just how strong of a drug nicotine really is.

    tobacco will not kill a single person. 1 billion people will CHOOSE to kill themselves.

    everyone knows how addicting nicotine is, it is no secret. we know it causes cancer, we know it takes years off lives, we know it slows the rate of healing. Every smoker knows this when they light up a cigarette.

    Its not just the nicotine - its the loads of cancerous crap loaded into cigarettes by your friendly neighboorhood cigarette manufacturer.

    I bet you if you everyone was rolling their own from organic tobacco cancer rates would be lower. Not that that's an excuse for inhaling burnt organic material into your lungs, that's never good.

    I understand your reasoning, but think back to when you were young (not sure how old you are) and never thought anything bad could happen to you. When your young you seem to think your invinsible and can change your bad habits at anytime.

    IMO. It's sad that the tabacco companies have so much money for lobbying our law makers.

    I believe the crack down the supplement world is crazy. You can trust anyone over 18 and 21 to make the right choices about tabacco and drugs, but not with supplements. A little strange, to me at least!

    I didn't think the nicotine molecule itself causes cancer.

    It's the benzene, formaldehyde, butadiene, et all that cause cancer.

    Amazing how your life can be ruined over posessing personal amounts of steroids, rec.drugs, etc but the CEO of a Tobacco company that is making billions of dollars off the deaths of millions of people is free to help shape the laws of this country with ill-gotten gains.

    I think we need a lot of bodybuilder politicians. Then we need to enact new laws to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law, those hacks that have accepted money to peddle the deadly tobacco products and protect the tabacco companies. They should be charged with felonies for knowingly accepting bribes knowingly legalizing a drug that kills.
    Especially get the anti-steroid two faced politicians that allow tabacco to be sold.
    Heck Arnold used to peddle cigars, guess he will have to be charged too!

    I think you guys need to actually do something about this instead of talking about it all day on Anabolic Minds. This is about the eleventy thousandth thread here about how much it blows that this or that isn't illegal while steroids are.I'm not trying to sound pretentious, but seriously guys, there's been enough talk. It only takes one person - excuse me, one committed person - to change the world.

    Get out there and at least try to get something done.

    Well, when going up against the US government, it usually takes a whole boatload of commited people and a limitless supply of cash, but I get your point
