Conspiracy to hide virus lung cancer role

If it's news, but not politics, then it goes here.

Newsflash: Pot makes people high. Where is the evidence that it was detrimental to their health?

As a side note, anyone who sells marijuana brownies to anyone without full disclosure of the ingredients should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, especially giving it to children. The story here is not that the ingested pot made people high nor is there anything in the story that the ingested pot was detrimental to their health. The story is that the people who ingested the pot were unwilling participants in a buzz. We get it peanut, you're a prohibitionist but trying to manufacture your own set of "facts" does nothing to strengthen your argument.

The CDC has proof that smoking either is unhealthy and deadly. The science is settled. Anyone who questions it is a wingnut with a political agenda.


The CDC commits scientific fraud to falsely blame tobacco for diseases that are really caused by infection. But retarded people like you think that just because some so-called "authority" says so, that means it must be true. That's religious faith, not science.

A crucial point that needs to be mentioned in this fascinating discussion is that the angle of the dangle is inversely proportional to the heat of the meat. Therefore, the carbohydrogen tin foil[@*4))~)] abstraction that masturburtarily adjudicates the spermacide qualities of the facial tendencies of the hot mature couple gets it on with the babysitter tendencies of the. As Carol correctly points out, when CO2 Ox suck the air out of the room factor, it can easily concluded that smoking leafy green substances gives harder and more sustained erections for those special moments.

And you're a perfect example of the abuse sans content that people get from liberals. Too bad it was only one of them.

The phenanthrene compound that Hecht used doesn't even seem to be listed as a carcinogen. (Table of Contents, 11th Report on Carcinogens. National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.)

http://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/index.cfm?obje ... 709CB4C932

As for the hysteria-mongering about DNA damage: In Epstein-Barr virus-transformed lymphoblastoid cell lines established from prospectively collected peripheral blood samples of 117 lung cancer patients with 117 matched controls, the alkaline Comet assay and the host cell reactivation (HCR) assay with the mutagen benzo[a]pyrene diol epoxide were unrelated to lung cancer risk. In the bleomycin mutagen sensitivity assay, "statistically significantly increased lung cancer odds ratios (OR(adjusted)) were observed for bleomycin mutagen sensitivity as quartiles of chromatid breaks/cell [relative to the lowest quartile, OR = 1.2, 95% confidence interval (CI): 0.5-2.5; OR = 1.4, 95% CI: 0.7-3.1; OR = 2.1, 95% CI: 1.0-4.4, respectively, P(trend) = 0.04]. The magnitude of the association between the bleomycin assay and lung cancer risk was modest compared with those reported in previous lung cancer studies but was strengthened when we included only incident cases diagnosed more than a year after blood collection (P(trend) = 0.02), supporting the notion the assay may be a measure of cancer susceptibility." (Prospective analysis of DNA damage and repair markers of lung cancer risk from the Prostate, Lung, Colorectal and Ovarian (PLCO) Cancer Screening Trial. AJ Sigurdson et al. Carcinogenesis 2011 Jan;32(1):69-73.)

However, infections by both Epstein-Barr virus and cytomegalovirus make cells more susceptible to damage by bleomycin. Smokers and passive smokers are more likely to have been infected by these viruses, for socioeconomic reasons.

Carol, you were amusing for a while. I think this last post calls for a ban.
