  1. Thats back when doctors recommended smoking.

    1. I remember going to to our family Doctor for a 'flu shot( which back then was administered via a glass syringe which had to be sterilised between patients ) and he was puffing away on an untipped cigarette all the time as he set it up...Those were the days !

  2. Saw the segment "Tobaccoland" on HBO show Vice (http://hbo.vice.com/episode-seven)

    "Indonesians like tobacco a whole lot. So much, in fact, that 67 million of them smoke it. There are no restrictions on advertising in the country, meaning ads targeted at young people abound, and kids often start smoking when they are as young as six years old. To top it off, some Indonesians actually think smoking is good for you and believe it cures all sorts of bad diseases, including cancer. We sent Thomas Morton over there to cut through the smoke and find out what's really happening. Months later, he's still coughing up weird yellow stuff."
