Are People Who Smoke Sick? Or Just Unaware of Better Options?

When the dangers of cigarette smoking were recognized in the 1950s and ‘60s, physicians assumed that tobacco would be treated like any other environmental toxin and gradually removed from the marketplace, as was done with substances such as lead or asbestos. It is no longer possible to buy lead pipes, leaded petrol, asbestos brake linings or asbestos insulation. However, cigarettes remain available at the local convenience store in every country.
