Geoffrey York: In China, cigarettes are a kind of miracle drug

From The Globe and Mail:

Guiyang, China ” Here’s some exciting medical news from the Chinese government: is great for your health.

Cigarettes, according to China’s tobacco authorities, are an excellent way to prevent ulcers.

They also reduce the risk of Parkinson’s disease, relieve schizophrenia, boost your brain cells, speed up your thinking, improve your reactions and increase your working efficiency…

Two-thirds of Chinese men are smokers, and surveys show that as many as 90 per cent believe their habit has little effect on their health, or is good for them.

Even in China’s medical community, 60 per cent of male doctors are smokers. Few are aware of the studies forecasting that cigarettes will soon be responsible for one-third of all premature deaths among Chinese men.
