> come on tealady, of course they knew about consequences. Common sense, that's all there is to it. To inhale smoke into your lungs and stay healthy? One does not have to be doctor to answer this question, just use common sense. The proof that they knew comes these days in courts across America where lawyers sue tobacco industry for hiding truth about negative effects of smoking during 60's and 70's. It's just that they payed big bucks to some "researchers" to provide results that will tell us biased story. Pharmaceutical industry is a dirty industry. They provide research which only goal is to present a drug in best possible way. Or worse, it can go other way. They pay for proving how other drugs or supplements can cause fatal deaths or serious damage. Remember tryptophan? It worked and was banned forever. A couple of weeks later Prozac comes out and Bang! big money starts pouring in.I am really curious to find out how much independent research is being done these days (meaning not being funded by companies, or any other organization involved in any industry). I would be thankful for a link about this issue.

There's a new book out that sounds interesting: "The Truth About the Drug Companies: How They Deceive Us and What to Do About It" The author, Marcia Angell, used to be an editor for the New England Journal of Medicine.

Here's an excerpt: http://www.alternet.org/envirohealth/19540/
