"When a thing ceases to be a subject of controversy,
it ceases to be a subject of interest."
- William Hazlitt
THE world's leading health organization has withheld from publication a study which shows that not only might there be no link between passive smoking and lung cancer but that it could even have a protective effect. The astounding results are set to throw wide open the debate on passive smoking health risks. The World Health Organisation, which commissioned the 12-centre, seven-country European study has failed to make the findings public, and has instead produced only a summary of the results in an internal report.

Smoking out 'deniers' and 'dissidents' Anti-smoking activists are now comparing their critics to Holocaust deniers. It is a vile attempt to shut down debate.

Bill Hannegan. Hannegan says he's not "pro-smoking," but, rather, "pro-freedom." "I see it as a property rights issue for the owner or the bar or restaurant," he said. If they try to clear the air, he said, "they should be able to use their property as they see fit, including allowing smoking."

Happy Birthday! At the age of 102 great grandmother Bet Winder who lives in a care home still enjoys the occasional cigarette and likes a glass of sherry.
