Patrick Timpone

Robert Proctor

Professor of the History of Science at Stanford University

The cigarette is the deadliest artifact in the history of human civilization. It is also one of the most beguiling, thanks to more than a century of manipulation at the hands of tobacco industry chemists. In Golden Holocaust, Robert N. Proctor draws on reams of formerly-secret industry documents to explore how the cigarette came to be the most widely-used drug on the planet, with six trillion sticks sold per year. He paints a harrowing picture of tobacco manufacturers conspiring to block the recognition of tobacco-cancer hazards, even as they ensnare legions of scientists and politicians in a web of denial. Proctor tells heretofore untold stories of fraud and subterfuge, and he makes the strongest case to date for a simple yet ambitious remedy: a ban on the manufacture and sale of cigarettes.

    NOBODY has the right to dictate what people do to their bodies regardless of harm it may cause. Maybe we should ban people who are anti freedom and want to micro-manage our lives.

      You are right. It is true that people are free to smoke or not smoke… However Tobacco industries market their products a predatory manner to the point of criminality!
