Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Sells Down in the US, Tobacco Co. Push Their Addictive Product in Poor and Middle-Income Nations

Editors Note: Of course the US Tobacco companies will not come out and say it, but we all know they are dumping their poisonous product in 3rd world nations, darker nations.

The survey, based on 248,452 interviews in 14 countries and published in The Lancet on Thursday, found that the world’s two most populous countries, India (above) and China, had the most new smokers, and the percentage of people who quit there and in Egypt, Bangladesh and Russia was as low as it was in the United States 50 years ago.
While Westerners in general can afford to smoke, the poorest nicotine addicts sometimes buy tobacco rather than food for their families, said the study’s leader, Gary A. Giovino of the University at Buffalo of the State University of New York.  - NYTimes.com
