To those who still think errorism is an important problem deserving much attention:
Cigarette smoking causes about one of every five deaths in the United States each year.1,6 Cigarette smoking is estimated to cause the following:1
- More than 480,000 deaths annually (including deaths from secondhand smoke)
I see only three potential causes for more untimely deaths in the United States:
(1) Thermonuclear war
(2) Yellowstone caldera explosion
(3) "The Big One", turning much of California into Atlantis 2.0
All three are extremely unlikely, so there's nothing really in sight that could be a greater threat to the United States than Big Tobacco*.
Everyone who pays attention to the real world instead of fiction and fantasy should consider Big Tobacco the No.1 enemy that needs to be hunted down and exterminated if there's any such enemy in the world at all.
*: And to Europe, it's really only (1) Thermonuclear War and (2) European Civil War.
