70% of Russian men are hooked on cigarettes

Some 70% of Russian men and 14% of Russian women are dependent on tobacco. The statistics came from Igor Petrachev, chief specialist for social programs of the Saint Petersburg Administration's Committee on Youth Policy, at a roundtable discussion held at the City Center for Neglected and Drug-Dependent Teens, Rosbalt reported.

Petrachev said the statistics came from the World Health Organization. WHO figures for 2002 were 63% for Russian men and 9% for Russian women. He called for a stepup in preventive efforts, especially among young people, in the battle against tobacco addiction.

The United States' Head of Diplomacy, or Secretary of State, is an anachronistic, incompetent, meddling, intrusive, insolent and arrogant, rude individual, a brash, foul-mouthed upstart, a conceited, self-important guttersnipe and an insult to the international community, as fit for the job as a pedophile janitor in a grade school.

Tillerson must go!
