Parkinson's disease, restenosis, which is, the occlusion of coronary arteries, gum disease, Alzheimer's, Ulcerative Colitis, allergic rhino-conjunctivitis, allergic asthma, atopic eczema and food allergy, tuberculosis, Emphysema, heart attacks and strokes, cardiovascular blockage, Kaposi's sarcoma (a type of skin cancer that primarily afflicts elderly men in Mediterranean regions of Southern Italy, Greece and Israel), breast cancer, Down's syndrome, Tourette's Syndrome, schizophrenia, cocaine addiction, colon and prostate cancer, Helicobacter pylori infection, papillary thyroid cancer, pre-eclampsia, neural tube defects in babies, hypertension during pregnancy.

The dangers to your health of these medical conditions being contracted by or aggravated by smoking cigarettes is well known.....IF, you listen to politicians and watch television and movies.

However, it is not well known that all of these ailments can be cured or greatly suppressed by smoking tobacco.

Cigarettes greatly reduce the effects of, or cure the above related illnesses. Details of professional expert's research projects of the benefits of smoking can be found at www.forces.org. Click on "Scientific Evidence".

"FORCES" is an acronym for Fight Ordinances and Restrictions to Control and Eliminate Smoking, an organization working to debunk misinformation and exaggerations about active and passive smoking.

Most smoking bans around the World are the result of fraudulent research experts providing phony data to unsuspecting government officials and/or corrupt officials.

Parkinson's disease: Reported in the March 6, 2007 issue of Neurology, Evan L. Thacker from Harvard School of Public Health and colleagues analyzed data, including detailed lifetime smoking histories, from 79,977 women and 63,348 men participating in the Cancer Prevention Study II Nutrition Cohort.  The investigators reported, "A 30 percent to 60 percent decreased risk of Parkinson's disease was apparent for smoking as early as 15 to 24 years before symptom onset, but not for smoking 25 or more years before onset,"

Tuberculosis: Mr. Saleh Naser, an associate professor of microbiology and molecular biology at University of Central Florida, presented his study to members of the American Society for Microbiology, saying, "Nicotine might be a surprising alternative someday for treating stubborn forms of tuberculosis. The compound stopped the growth of tuberculosis in laboratory tests, even when used in small quantities. It's the best thing I've seen to date. It shows there is some hope that this substance we've hated for so long might be formulated in one way or another to fight infectious diseases."

Breast cancer: Jean-Sebastien Brunet, lead author of a study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute said that the incidence of breast cancer was 54 percent lower among heavy smokers than among nonsmokers.

Alzheimers: Graves AB, van Duijn CM, for the EURODEM Risk Factors Research Group pooled reanalysis found, "A statistically significant inverse relation between smoking and Alzheimer's disease was observed at all levels of analysis, with a trend towards decreasing risk with increasing consumption".

Non surgical heart bypass: Dr. Christopher Heeschen of Stanford University in California was honored by the American College of Cardiology for his research on the effect of nicotine on angiogenesis which is "new blood vessel growth". Dr. Heeschen presented compelling data from research done at Stanford revealing that the simple plant protein, nicotine, applied in small harmless doses, produced new blood vessel growth around blocked arteries to oxygen-starved tissue. 

The research, involving animal studies, showed that the nicotine agent created more new blood vessels in blocked arteries than any other known growth factor. The new agent could be used to treat failing hearts and limbs with poor circulation. It holds the potential for non-surgical heart by-pass procedures. Let me reiterate, "Any other known growth factor".

Dr. Heeschen commented, ''It is important to note that this is a natural protein and is not gene therapy. Our research demonstrated conclusively that medicinal nicotine given at low doses is a very potent angiogenic.''

 

Dr. John P. Cooke, director of the Vascular Medicine Research Laboratory at Stanford, stated, ''We went into our research suspecting strongly that nicotine might play a negative role, that it would prevent growth of new blood vessels. In doing our experiments, we were surprised to find that nicotine, which is usually considered harmful, did the opposite. It actually had a potent therapeutic effect on the enhancement and growth of new blood vessels in cases of ischemic (oxygen-starved) vessels. The paradoxical results caused a paradigm shift in our thinking.''
