GPS - who had very little idea of the true cause of death - increasingly started putting "lung cancer" on death certificates. The number of Brits shown to have died from lung cancer back in the years, judging by what was reported oin death certificates, pretty much doubled from one year to the next.) Eysenk's research had already shown a strong link between "personality types" and eventual cause of death. The two biggest causes of death there in the UK are heart disease and cancer - people who can be shown to be "of a nervous disposition" seem to disptroportionately die from cancer. He suggested that if that were so, then "people of a nervous disposition" might actually take up smoking as a kind of "nerve tonic", and that they subsequently die from cancer is completely unconnected. It's what statisticians call "the ice cream - drowning fallacy". (People who eat ice cream are VERY much more likely to drown than people who don't. Not because icecream CAUSES drowning, but because when the sun is shining on a nice summer day, people are prone to eat ices, and immerse themselves in large bodies of water - like the sea - where the chance of drowing is greatly increased.) The causational relationship between tobacco and cancer wasn't adequately show until around 20 years after the statistical link had been pointed out. Remember that VERY few medics are scientists. The skills REALLY required to become a doctor have far more to do with linguistics than with science.

I am a smoker, and I can appreciate that tobacco smoke is obnoxious to many and I respect their right to be in an environment free of my smoke. But I reject the ludicrous 'global warming science' that the non-smoking evangelists employ. Utter tosh.Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.
