More Doctors smoke Camels than any other cigarette!


Taschen catalog caption: "Camel Cigarettes, 1946. What better endorsement for lighting up than knowing that your personal physician or surgeon was enjoying the same pleasure of enjoying the rich flavor of Camel's 'costlier tobaccos?' With over 100,000 doctors surveyed in 1946, logic assumed cigarette smoking was a harmless habit. Health hazard? Who cares. Your T-Zone would let you know how cigarettes affected your throat. And, of course, your doctor's nicotine habit would sooth any qualms about the safety of smoking. If your doctor smoked, why not you?"

Makes me wonder about all of it, cellphones, emf's,pvc, pesticides, food additives, nothing to worry about, but every now and then I have a conversation with an earthy type that warns me and I think nah, just an alarmist. Then I see this and think...Who knows, maybe one shouldn't assume.
