i found this interesting....

thanks for the link,,, a good read this morning

Tobacco, for instance, seems like it would offer a comparable case study, but doesn’t give us much useful information. The tobacco industry has EPA approval for many different kinds of pesticides. (Then again, Big Tobacco has some of the world’s most persuasive lobbyists.) And nobody’s arguing that tobacco can be used as medicine for cancer patients. An average cigarette contains dozens of carcinogens and hundreds of toxins, including arsenic and glass fibers, and even smoking tobacco in a pipe or a hand-rolled cigarette is known to have detrimental health effects. Isolating pesticides in tobacco research, or even following up on the few pesticide guidelines they have put in place, hasn’t been a priority for the EPA.
