The Anti-Smoking Wrongs Groups Need To Stop Lying To The Public!!

Smoking cigarettes will not cause cancer!  You read correctly.  This is so very important, I’ll say it again, Smoking cigarettes will NOT cause cancer!  The anti-smokers wrongs groups have spent the last four decades telling you and me a big fat lie that smoking causes various cancers, as well as other terrible diseases, like cardiovascular disease (heart attack & stroke, etc.).  The absolute, unvarnished truth is that ALL cancers are the body’s reaction to a virus (a couple of other things (like asbestos, radiation, and environmental toxins) might also be able to directly alter the DNA of the body).

     Basically, you contract a particular virus, your immune system kills off the virus, however, because of an error in the means by which it does this, an auto-immune condition develops (the immune system continues to work long after the virus is dead, resulting in damage to the organ system, including alterations to the DNA).  Have you ever heard of HPV?  It’s a virus which is responsible for cervical cancer.

     As cancer researchers have found recently, and believed for at least 4 decades, that viruses cause cancer.  The problem is, until those same researchers come up with an inoculation, their benefactors (the pharmaceutical industry) can’t reap a reward, so everyone remains silent, or risk losing their research funding.  Unless there’s a drug (like chemotherapy) or an inoculation (like Gardasil) which will generate Billions in sales, the silence is deafening…and the lie continues to be propagated.

      The lie give the anti-smokers wrongs groups power.  The silence give the pharmaceutical companies power.  Ignorance is power, and power is control.  I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of being controlled by people who don’t actually have my best interests at heart.  What about you?

Dave and HAL remembered or was 2001 a Space Odyssey prophetic?

When does technology become evil?  I think technology (computers, smartphones, iPads, the internet, etc.) only becomes evil when we, as a society) believe we can’t function without it, or it replaces actual human contact (social intercourse).  In some (maybe many) ways the current generation might have crossed that line.  I guess we’ll have to see if our society, over time,  stagnates and dies, or continues to grow and evolve.  I not sure which will happen.  But I am afraid for our kids.

On the other hand, a product of that technological revolution, are miniature electronic tags, that are implanted under the person’s skin.  What with the ever increasing amount kidnapping of woman and children for the purposes of human trafficking and the increasing number of human predators out there stalking, and torturing, our children, tagging our kids sounds like a really good thing.  At least we can find their bodies once the bad people are done with them.

All of this may sound cynical, and I guess it is, but regardless, technology, and our increasing dependence on it, is both good and evil.  We, as humans, must strive to keep our humanity, and positive human interactions, in the face of the dehumanization of our society by our own dependence on technology.  Computers have no conscience.  Only humans have a conscience (or at least we’re suppose to have).  We, as a sentient species, must choose whether or not we wish our interactions with other human being (and other species, for that matter) are warm and friendly, or cold and brutal.  Something to think about, while you’re reading this blog over the internet on you desktop, notebook, or netbook computer.  Enjoy your day.
