Tobacco Company Profits are OBSCENE

The World Lung Foundation and the American Cancer Society have teamed up to produce the 4th edition of what they call the "Tobacco Atlas". It was released last week in Singapore.

The website of the Tobacco Atlas is a sobering stop for anyone who thinks that it is nothing short of insanity to continue to allow big tobacco to produce a product whose sole aim, aside from raking in Billions in profits ($35B estimated annual global PROFIT) is to continue to addict people, and, when used as intended, to hugely increase the probability of death and kill its own customers (at the rate of at least 6 Million deaths annually).

Here is a copy of the Press Release (in embedded PDF format - use the zoom in/out control to better view) from the Atlas launch that summarizes the report.
