Knowledge of Self at - a lady born in Iran and emigrated to Canada at age 10 relates her first experience of the anti-smoking nazis. And what she's learned of their lies since then. Smoking isn't always a bad thing for all people. And second-hand smoke is nearly harmless.

Lung Cancer / Emphasema

Submitted by walter wilkinson on Tue, 25 Oct 2011 02:41:14 GMT

if you want to argue that smoking is beneficial to health, how does Emphysema fit into your logic?

It is true, as you mention, that mental patients function better if they smoke a great deal of tobacco...anyone who has worked in a mental health program knows this. Traditionally in mental institutions, patients were issued cigarettes [very cheap ones].

But smoking damages the brain as well as the lungs. It injures the centers of the brain involved with emotion and impulse control. Research is beginning to expose that many people who need to be institutionalized have brains damaged originally by early-teen smoking.

Fascinating insights about lung cancer come from Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer, originator of the New German Medicine:

The biological conflict linked to lung cancer is a “death-fright conflict”, because in biological terms the death panic is equated with being unable to breathe. With the shock of the deathfright the lung alveoli cells, which regulate breathing, instantly start to multiply, forming a lung tumor. Contrary to the conventional view, this multiplication of lung cells is not a pointless process but serves a very definite biological purpose, namely, to increase the capacity of the lungs and thereby optimize the organism’s chance of survival. Dr. Hamer’s brain scan analyses demonstrate that every person with lung cancer shows a distinct target ring configuration in the corresponding area in the brain stem, and that each patient had suffered an unexpected death panic prior to the onset of cancer. In the majority of cases the death scare was triggered by a cancer diagnosis shock that the person experienced as a “death sentence”. Given that smoking is on the decrease, this sheds new light on the enigmatic increase of lung cancer (“The #1 Killer”) and calls into question whether smoking is per se an actual cause of lung cancer.

Nowhere is he claiming smoking is beneficial to health. Re-read the thing. It is true that smoking has killed fewer people than fascism.

As you suggested, I re-read the thing. The first links the author chose to include are:

Smoking does NOT cause lung cancer, in fact it just might protect you from nuclear fallout
