Oh yeah? Let's look at lung cancer for starters. Over 90% of lung cancer cases occur among tobacco smokers. That makes lung cancer an almost completely preventable disease. So no, I'm not wrong. Source.
Gosh, I thought we were talking about HIV research, and trying to find out if there were any anti-homosexual bigots out there somewhere....
The funding for HIV research FAR outstrips the funding for lung cancer research, in spite of all the tobacco settlement billions.
So, I guess that makes HIV “special,” as a lifestyle choice disease. Any idea why? I’m just curious.
If smokers and the families of smokers were on tv demanding a cure, and trying to make you feel like a vicious, unfeeling bigot for not donating enough, not caring enough, don't tell me you wouldn't suggest that people stop smoking.
