: He just reads the tabloids and CNN and believes it as FACT without doing common sense thinking. Like most. Thats why everyone is in such a panic. Bottom line over 150k AMERICANS die alone from just lung cancer. I don't see anybody including the GOVT shutting down the tobacco industry or doing anything about it. Why. Because its huge money. So don't give me that American lives are more important than the Economy. It should be but in simple fact it is not and will never be.
I actually get my information from scientist, statisticians, and science communicators.
You're half right about tobacco--though that has literally nothing to do with the current issue. But the government has passed regulations on tobacco and have invested hundreds of millions of dollars into cancer research, so your idea that they've done nothing about it simply isn't true.
But let me ask you about your last statement--do YOU think that American lives should mean more than the economy?**
**By the way, it's a false dichotomy that says that it is just a matter of choosing the economy over lives.
