Canadian and international research has shown that to be effective, health warnings must be noticeable and memorable. They should also be truthful. This one is. Blaming tobacco products for doctor caused deaths is an effective smokescreen to divert attention from the real problems facing healthcare. Although tobacco products may contribute to many causes of death they do NOT rank as number one. Far from it.
TRUTH – is Doctors, NOT Cigarettes, are the leading cause of death in Canada. Recent newspaper articles provide a fascinating and alarming insight into the scope of medical errors in hospitals and what the hospitals do when they are discovered is “cover up” the truth.
As early as 1991 a report found that one of every 200 patients admitted to a hospital died as a result of a hospital error or what is termed an “iatrogenic” death. Researchers say that medical errors reported to hospital authorities represent roughly only 5 to 10 percent of the number of actual medical mistakes at a typical hospital. Because most medical mistakes do not go beyond hospital walls, it is estimated that only 2 to 10 percent of all cases involving medical error result in lawsuits.
A Harvard University professor who conducted the most comprehensive study of medical errors in the United States, has estimated that 1 million patients nationwide are injured by errors during hospital treatment each year and that 120,000 die as a result. In other reports, between 225,000 and 783,936 deaths per year have been postulated to occur as a direct result of a physician’s activity. Prorate those figures with Canada’s population and the results are staggering.
According to Health Canada, “Each year, the equivalent of a small city dies from tobacco use”. Also know that the Government subsidizes tobacco growers, if the truth be known. However, it can also be said that each year, the equivalent of a mid-size city dies from medical stupidity. In fact, our doctors will kill you before the damned cigarettes will. The fact that many of these victims so happen to be smokers is not germane. Blaming cigarettes or tobacco is like blaming guns for murder, blaming cars for accidents, or blaming helicopters for stray cattle.
TRUTH is – Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a disease spreading quickly due to increases in levels of air pollution. Outdoor air pollution is largely and increasingly a consequence of the combustion of fossil fuels for transport, power generation and other human activities. Combustion processes produce a complex mixture of pollutants that comprises both primary emissions, such as diesel soot particles and lead, and the products of atmospheric transformation, such as ozone and sulfate particles formed from the burning of sulfur-containing fuel, also notable for contributing to the very same diseases alleged from smoking and tobacco use.
Just think of how much brake dust you breath in following the car or truck in front of you.
“By the early 20th Century almost one in every two people smoked, but the incidence of lung cancer remained so low that it was almost immeasurable. Then something extraordinary happened on July 16, 1945: a terrifying cataclysmic event that would eventually cause western governments to distort the perception of smoking forever?” – Smoking Helps Protect Against Lung Cancer – Chemtrail
What happened on July 16, 1945 was the first Atmospheric Atomic testing. Not many people know the particle radioactive half-life of Atomic particles is a minimum of 50,000 years. These particles are still in the atmosphere.
“One hundred and forty-nine atomic bombs have exploded over American soil. No one knows how many people, if any, these bombs have killed. The initial heat and shock of the explosions probably killed no one. Open-air atomic explosions, however, have more lasting and distant effects. They create and release tremendous amounts of highly dangerous radioactive materials. Radiation causes cancer, leukemia, cardiovascular problems, cataracts, immunological weakness, genetic defects, pre-natal problems, mental retardation, and many other problems. Any deaths caused by radiation normally occur only years or decades later. Estimates of deaths worldwide from American, Soviet, British, French and Chinese nuclear tests range from something near zero to several million”. – Nuclear Testing
A Star investigation examined hundreds of boxes of forestry documents and found the provincial government began experimenting with a powerful hormone-based chemical called 2,4,5-T — the dioxin-laced component of Agent Orange — in Hearst, Ont., in 1957.
Cancer-causing toxins used to strip the jungles of Vietnam were also employed to clear massive plots of Crown land in Northern Ontario, government documents obtained by the Toronto Star reveal.
Place The Blame For Most Death and Disease Where It Belongs – On Scientific Misconduct, including Government and Medical Stupidity! And don’t forget to blame your Government for allowing it to get out of control to the point where they now have to assign blame on tobacco products in order to cover-up their misadventures.
The fundamental social value of respect for life has become debased. Patients may now come to think of their doctors/nurses as executioners. The elderly and the vulnerable are at a high risk of merciless killing.
The medical profession is notorious for protecting its own, which, all things being equal, is admirable, but all things are not equal. Tens of thousands of patients die every year at the hands of bad doctors while their colleagues look the other way in a conspiracy of silence. The public response to the doctors and their demands should be an unrelenting demand for medical truth, and for STRICT criminal accountability.
