I thought I’d use this information sent to my inbox today in a new post as the others invaded by Baz are getting a bit cumbersome, and , indeed, not entirelty related to any particualr post but debated generally.
Mandy V sent this through and it makes interesting reading.

The vegan analogy is interesting, as far as I am aware, no-one is banned from opening a vegan restaurant are they?
I am over 50 and never been in hospital, (apart from having babies).
It is years since I stepped inside the doctors surgery also.
I work with some elderly people who by some miracle are still alive and kicking and smoking.
Shoving the elderly outside (old peoples homes) to smoke is the most evil thing out of this ban.
It is bad enough pubs and clubs and others who were happy to cater for smokers and non-smokers are closing down because this was forced upon them.
If, nicotine is so addictive, why are drug commpanies allowed to sell products that give false information, ie the percentage of people giving up with them?
Intolerance sure as hell is not healthy either –http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/april2007/250407antismoking.htm
I am also a smoker and feel like a criminal/leper or whatever the new fad name is for smokers nowadays, for enjoying something that is not illegal.
I hate the thought of going to parties and pubs/clubs anymore.
Just out of interest, are Vegans addicted to vegetables from the same plant family as tobacco?

“The term “niacin” used interchangeably with vitamin B3 is actually a non-technical term that refers to several different chemical forms of the vitamin. These forms include nicotinic acid and nicotinamide. (Nicotinamide is also sometimes called niacinamide.) The names “niacin,” “nicotinic acid,” and “nicotinamide” are all derived from research studies on tobacco in the early 1930’s. At that time, the first laboratory isolation of vitamin B3 occurred following work on the chemical nicotine that had been obtained from tobacco leaves.”
