Time for new thinking on smoking : Comments

By David Leyonhjelm, published 5/7/2019

To add some perspective, a 25-pack of Marlboro now costs an eye-watering $34.95. That's $12,757 per year for a pack-a-day smoker.

Hey Alan B,

"My reinforcing was done with plates that are screwed to the bone."

I guess that'd make sense;
If the damage was localised to the lumbar region there would be no reason for the use of rods to support other regions on your spinal column.
It's sometimes kind of hard to have a good understanding of the issues at hand without the benefit of seeing the x-ray.

"I can quote from medical reports etc, that I still have, that says, A compression fracture of L1 at the sacral lumbar junction that created the new stresses that eventually led to fracturing of L2 and 3. Suggest you go back to Wikipedia or wherever you collected your vastly superior medical expertise and reread if only to understand the top down number of the cervical spine is not replicated through the entire spine! That the lumbar spine is numbered, last time I looked, from the bottom up! And so represented in the X rays I still hold!"

I really didn't want to have to look it up to provide a link to prove you wrong;
But for the record, I don't need to second guess myself on the topic of spinal anatomy and biomechanics;
(But I don't know all the associated conditions or injuries)
I don't need to check and I didn't learn from Wikipedia.

But since we're going around in circles I'm just going to have to prove you wrong now Alan B, sorry.
- No hard feelings -

I'll say it again, I assure you L1 is at the thoracolumbar junction, not the sacrolumbar juntion.
- And that's all I have to say about that -

You all might think I talk a lot of conspiratorial bs, and I do.
But when I do so, I know I'm skating on thin ice.
I went out ONTO the thin ice full well knowing the risks.

And that said you'll all be hard pressed to catch me out in a factual error too often.

"Fentanyl kills more than ice?"

Yep.

- FENTANYL. IS. DEATH. -

The Rise of Fentanyl: Drug Addiction On The I-95 Two Years On

Ice, well you'll get a whole lot of psychosis and rage and it has detrimental effects on the drug user and those around them;
But fentanyl is death itself, and I don't really have much more to add.

"Did you know that big pharma's cancer care profits are 40% for treatment medication and 60% for end of life palliative care."

No I didn't but I'm not surprised.

"And I believe, the reason why miracle cancer cure, bismuth 213 has been forbidden or massively suppressed, given it is a virtually free byproduct of MSR thorium!"

You might be right there.

Something funny seems to be going on with the way they fund it, almost build it, and then mothball the thorium reactor projects.
It costs US taxpayers so much money;
- Then to achieve nothing.

Some kind of funny business going on there I think.
But I think it's like that in the nuclear industry.

Oh and BTW, I certainly AM NOT going to argue anything regards thorium MSR with you.
You're the expect on that one.

Yes Armchair, I think you should put pen to paper and write to the AMA. to tell them there are a number of specialists that don't know enough about human autonomy to be practising highly invasive surgery! And includes a number of orthopedic surgeons a couple of neurosurgeons and a dozen or so radiologists.

Yes thorium was not just suppressed due one thinks to the financial harm it could do to the fossil fuel industry, big nuclear and big pharma alike. Bismuth 213 is an alpha particle isotope with a half-life of just 45 minutes, that's attached to an antibody that then goes directly to the cancer and kills it, leaving the healthy tissue mostly undamaged.

. Has been used in several successful trials in Europe on stage four ovarian cancer.

And there are published reports, (google scholar?) if you look hard enough.

I also believe credible reports that claim success against myeloid leukemia, pancreatic cancer and some very nasty brain cancers. The latter to date exceeds the annual road toll and has remained stubbornly so for over three decades.

The average life span for brain cancer, is reportedly, 14 months from diagnosis to death with less than 2% making past five years. One has to assume, our erstwhile leaders remain totally ignorant on thorium and its child miracle cancer cure bismuth213. Given the best they can and do is enact euthanasia laws and offer lethal options!?

But then they are to a virtual generic man, not there for us!? Otherwise, they'd have cracked on decades ago building MSR thorium and with other folks gifted money! And then provided power for less than a cent PKWH!
