Scandalous Claim: Tobacco Industry Earns $7000 Per Death

smokingcostSomething tells me the tobacco industry isn’t taking this scathing headline lying down. Although more industrialized countries are showing a decline in smoking, China is offsetting the numbers with increased smokers. The sad-but-true statistic is that death from smoking is completely preventable. The number of women who smoke is rising. After reading the news that e-cigarette ads compel smokers trying to quit to reach for the real thing, this headline doesn’t surprise me. For an idea of the tobacco industry moral compass, have you seen the movie “The Insider“? Tweet me @AlliesVoice.
