Quit Without Quitting: How & Why Diabetic Smokers Can Heal Themselves

32 million Americans are living with diagnosed type 2 diabetes, and 25% of these folks are smokers – about 7,000,000 people. Because they are diabetic, these smokers face a special set of severe hazards from deliberately concealed highly bioactive insecticide and fungicide chemicals that every US Agency – FDA, EPA, USDA, CDC, the Surgeon General, FTC – all know are present and are being concealed but refuse to regulate or even inspect for in cigarettes. These are not those mysterious “additives”, or those infamous and ridiculous “7000 chemicals”, or any of the other nasty things we’ve all been told for years are dangers to smokers. These bioactive chemicals are a completely different level of hazard to human health, but you’ve never once heard about them in any anti-tobacco propaganda. They are potent, very dangerous and in some instances banned (but used on tobacco and inhaled with every puff) insecticides and fungicides that are proven Diabetes hazards (see also here and here) that have never once been mentioned in any government ‘smoking & health’ research or in any of the anti-tobacco programs and propaganda. They are doing irreparable harm to every smoker every day and are leading every smoker toward Diabetes, but for a smoker who already has Diabetes, inhaling this concealed witch’s brew with every puff is slowly and severely damaging their organs and nerves far beyond anything else in their life. And this is all completely and easily preventable.

After reviewing 21 previous studies, researchers found exposure to any type of pesticide was associated with a 61 percent increased risk for any type of diabetes. The increased risk for type 2 diabetes — the most common type — was 64 percent, the investigators found.”

So it’s worth asking – how much of the daily and long-term damage Diabetic smokers are suffering from smoking contaminated tobacco cigarettes, meaning virtually every commercial brand, could be 100% prevented by switching to organic tobacco cigarettes? I wonder what would happen if a Diabetic smoker could eliminate just those pesticides without having to face the often futile struggle of “quitting”? For anyone who might think – “But that’s not a solution! That”s still smoking!” I’ll simply point to the impeccable logic behind needle exchange and condom distribution programs. You deal with the harm you can deal with.

My answer is that the damage from cigarette pesticides is actually 100% preventable and it doesn’t mean that Diabetic smokers have to go through the agonies of quitting tobacco or switch to lettuce cigarettes in order to stop harming themselves. All any Diabetic smoker has to do is switch to organic tobacco cigarettes for a week to begin feeling better than they’ve felt in a long time and see their numbers begin to improve. That’s correct. Once you know that these severely hazardous pesticide contaminants are in the cigarettes you’re smoking, and once you know what they are doing to your health, it’s just common sense to avoid them if you can, and if you do even for a little while you’ll see for yourself.

This is an incredibly easy fix to a horrible, widespread problem. It’s not a total solution, but it’s a good fix for those who need it. Diabetic smokers do not have to quit smoking tobacco to quit damaging themselves with inhaled neurotoxins, mutagens, teratogens, genotoxins, obesogens, and the other classes of highly bioactive insecticide/fungicide chemicals that are concealed as cigarette contaminants with full US government knowledge and complicity. I’ll show you the hard data below on the pesticides in just one common brand, smoked by over Two Million US Diabetics, with links to other equally compelling hard evidence.

Some kinds of change need a nationwide movement, but this revolution in Diabetic health can and should take place one smoker at a time as individual smokers realize that they can take control and help heal themselves without going through the agonies and depressing failures of trying to quit smoking. Equally important is that 20,000,000 pre-diabetic smokers in the US, and untold millions more worldwide, can each acting on their own, have a positive impact on their own health even if they don’t stop smoking. It’s what smokers are inhaling along with the tobacco in the tobacco product they”re smoking that creates this 100% preventable threat to their health, completely separately from the harm that the tobacco itself may or may not be doing. Please let me show you the evidence.

This post and related posts on this blog offer hard data to show that this severe hazard to health that exists far beneath everybody’s level of awareness can be 100% prevented by individual Diabetic smokers making a simple, easy choice that the US Government, the Tobacco Cartel, and the Anti-smoking/Anti-tobacco forces all want to keep them from making. That statement may be hard to believe, so let me offer you the hard evidence that this hazard is real and painfully obvious once it’s seen, and then let me offer the simple painless solution.

Let’s Look At Marlboros

Since Marlboro is most popular US cigarette brand, with a 40% share of all cigarette smokers, I’ll assume there are roughly 2.5 million Marlboro-smoking diabetics. Let’s see what’s happening to all those cowboys.

First, when it comes to Diabetes, let’s all notice that the CDC uses the words “causes Diabetes” in the statement below, which is about as certain as any science-based statement can be, but also notice that it is “smoking” that “causes” Diabetes, not “smoking tobacco” – which is what we are all supposed to assume is meant:

“We now know that smoking causes type 2 diabetes. In fact, smokers are 30–40% more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than nonsmokers.  And people with diabetes who smoke are more likely than nonsmokers to have trouble with insulin dosing and with controlling their disease.”

https://www.cdc.gov/tobacco/campaign/tips/diseases/diabetes.html

But what no government agency will ever tell these 2.5 million Diabetics who smoke Marlboros, or any other brand, is that they are being exposed with every puff to a ‘cocktail’ of unregulated insecticides and fungicides concealed in those cigarettes many of which on their own, when someone who is Diabetic is exposed, are known to severely complicate Type 2 Diabetes. And the fact also is that there has never once been a study on the health effects of smoking tobacco by itself – no contaminants, no additives, no reconstituted tobacco waste – just pure leaf. Never one research study. There are thousands of research studies of pesticides and human health, but zero on inhaling pesticides from cigarettes. None. There hasn’t even been a study on pesticide contaminants in cigarettes since around 1970 when the Tobacco Cartel realized they had a big problem and chose to conceal it.

You can browse a few examples of the surviving tobacco/cigarette pesticide research that virtually ended in the 1970s here  and  here  and here  and here and here. You will not find anything similar in the past 50 years. Neither the Cartel nor the US government want smokers to have a clue. Nothing to see here. Move along.

But before we get to that let’s fact-check that statement on the concealed pesticides in Marlboros and while we’re at it let’s check a few other brands too.

Here are hard data showing the fungicides and insecticides found in Marlboro cigarettes and other brands pulled off-the-shelf from area mini-marts by professional lab staff using randomized selection – I didn’t select the tobacco products to be tested – during 2018 lab tests of major US cigarette brands for my book “Smoke No Evil”. The lab I used is highly qualified to test for pesticide residues on commercial tobacco substrate due to its EU corporate parentage. The choice of USDA certified organic tobacco as the reference substrate was the lab’s decision, as was the inclusion of American Spirit Blues in the product selection. Here’s what the lab found – and here’s what any Federal regulatory agency could find anytime they looked.

It may be easy to just scan and dismiss that list, especially things labelled “trace”, but please slow down – each one of these pesticides has its own set of impacts on areas of special concern to Diabetics like glucose metabolism, inflammation, neuropathy, and other critical health issues for Diabetics. You can prove this for yourself.

Try this little exercise. Search the name of any of these pesticides plus any diabetic condition or complication together at random  – “Azoxystrobin and neurotoxicity” for example, or “Bifenthrin and glucose”, or “Chlorantraniliprole and neurological”, or “ Penconazole and testicular”, or “ Fluopicolide and nephrotoxicity” or “Trifloxystrobin and neuropathy“.

Just poke around with whatever “Name of Marlboro pesticide/Diabetic symptom/condition” combinations interest you. By the way, those are random combinations above – try your own pesticide/condition combinations too, and please keep this research in mind while you browse:

After reviewing 21 previous studies, researchers found exposure to any type of pesticide was associated with a 61 percent increased risk for any type of diabetes. The increased risk for type 2 diabetes — the most common type — was 64 percent, the investigators found.”

https://www.webmd.com/diabetes/news/20150916/pesticide-exposure-tied-to-diabetes-risk

Just poke around in the science. No need to deep-dive at first – you’ll quickly get a sense of how broad this problem really is – and this is just set of pesticides from one brand. Other brands have very different pesticide profiles, and each insecticide and fungicide has very different impacts on Diabetes – much of it not yet studied. But with the search strategy above you can easily browse the already-known effects of exposure to the multiple highly bioactive pesticides that every Diabetic Marlboro smoker is inhaling +/-600 times a day – if they’re just a pack-a-day smoker.

Even more stunning when you think about it – not one doctor treating any Diabetic patient who smokes is aware that they are inhaling this incredible pesticide cocktail every day, because not one research study has ever been published on the subject, and there has never been a medical journal article raising even the possibility that this could be a problem for smokers. Research in this area has been completely absent from the world’s journals for over 50 years – although there is plenty of research on the consequences of exposure to pesticides – exposure to many of these pesticides alone, much less in combination, is known to lead to Type 2 and then if a Diabetic is exposed to make their Type 2 symptoms much worse. There’s plenty of research on that, but nothing on pesticides in cigarettes. Could this be a simple oversight? Oops – missed that one.

Not bloody likely – right? Here are examples of the kind of cigarette pesticide research that suddenly disappeared after the early 1970s, when the Tobacco Cartel realized what it all meant, you can browse a few examples of surviving tobacco/cigarette pesticide research here  and  here  and here  and here and here. All the Billions of dollars spent on “Smoking & Health” research and not one single study that simply compares smoking tobacco without pesticide contaminants with smoking contaminated tobacco products. Not even one study anywhere that said – “Hey, just for fun and because it’s dead simple to do, let’s just see what kinds of pesticide residues smokers are inhaling from these brands of cigarettes.” Not once.

This means of course that any complications of Diabetes symptoms due to this 100% preventable pesticide exposure are also 100% hidden from the Doctor’s view and can’t be detected much less diagnosed or appropriately treated. It also means the Diabetic smoker can’t make a fully informed decision about their own options. Very few smokers know there are organic tobacco product options, or why organic tobacco matters dramatically to their health and quality of life. With everything lumped together under “smoking” it’s impossible for a smoker or their doctor to be aware of the potentially hugely important differences between smoking tobacco with and without pesticide contamination – everything else kept the same.

So its also important to note that while we found ten Marlboro fungicides and pesticides above the level of detection, the fact is that in every cigarette brand there will always be dozens of other residues below those levels. (See the section at the end of this post for a long, long list of bioactive insecticidal and fungicidal chemicals known to be widely used on tobacco and known to leave residues.)

So if you’re wondering why its important that there are pesticide residues even below the levels of detection, let’s get a common mis-conception out of the way – that the size of the dose matters. That’s just in case anyone is tempted to say “Oh look here, that’s only a small amount of those pesticides, just a little trace, less than we can even detect. That little bit might kill tiny bugs, but how much damage could that infinitely small amount of pesticide do to a human?” 

Please check this link: solid new neurotoxicology science tells us that a trace is all it takes for many new pesticides to perform exactly as designed. They don’t depend on dosage for firepower. They are 100% stealthy by design and even a few molecules on-target on-time will do the job on any endocrine system or any nervous system or any reproductive system of any living creature. Oh, and a blend of those designer supertoxins … what do you suppose they do to human beings when they’re all working together, like they’re supposed to? Nobody knows because nobody has ever imagined that anyone would be inhaling these insecticide/fungicide combinations, at any level.

Toxicology

Toxic effects of pesticide mixtures at a molecular level: their relevance to human health”

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/22728724/

The widely-held message in the toxicology science literature is that many if not most pesticides do their damage at molecular levels, far below the limits of detection, and science has demonstrated in the case of many of these pesticides that the classic dose-response model doesn’t apply, so dismissing pesticide contamination of tobacco products as a minor issue because of dosage is counter-factual. 

This also ignores the fact that, for example, even the tiny concentrations of some of these pesticides on the tobacco in the brands we first tested in 2018 FAR EXCEEDED allowable limits on any other consumable food or food product. That Azoxystrobin in Marlboros is way over limits for food, but you don’t inhale broccoli or catfish, right? Besides, your gut can handle a lot more than your lungs, and your gut is set up to protect your body from neurotoxins but your lungs are a wide-open pathway to every vital organ – no barriers.

In fact, you don’t inhale pesticides into your lungs from any other consumer product; contaminated food and drink go through your digestive system and produce completely different outcomes from the same pesticide inhaled. For example, eating DDT isn’t an issue unless it is at very very high levels – almost by the spoonful. But even a trace of inhaled DDT goes straight into your bloodstream where it heads straight for your organs, glands, nervous system and DNA. (No, we didn’t find DDT in Marlboros, but we found enormous concentrations in Swisher Sweets.)

Bottom line – those fungicides and insecticides you see in the data above are severely damaging the health of the 2.5 million diabetics who are smoking Marlboros regardless of any damage the tobacco in those cigarettes may or may not be doing to them too. 

Thing is – this damage from the insecticides and fungicides is 100% preventable, simply and easily.

So What Can A Diabetic Smoker Do Besides Quit?

Like almost all cigarette smokers most Diabetics want to quit, but like all smokers most of them who try simply can’t. They’ve tried, many times. It’s just too difficult. So like most non-Diabetic smokers they figure they just have to live with the damage their smoking does, although like all smokers they keep trying to quit or cut down or do something, anything. Nothing seems to work so they keep smoking cigarettes that keep exposing them to these hidden pesticides, that nobody knows are there, that are doing who knows how much of the harm, and causing who knows how much of the suffering, completely independent of any actual “tobacco” that may be in their Marlboro cigarette. 

That’s pure tragedy. If they only knew that they don’t have to stop smoking to stop inhaling pesticides, which is even more important for Diabetics than for non-Diabetic smokers. A simple switch to organic tobacco cigarettes or RYO and they wouldn’t be inhaling pesticides when they fired up.

https://www.cdc.gov/tobacco/campaign/tips/diseases/diabetes.html

100% 0f the damage to their Diabetic state being caused by hidden, unregulated pesticides in their Marlboros is 100% preventable – they can easily and comfortably switch to organic tobacco cigarettes or organic tobacco RYO and completely eliminate that part of the damage from smoking. 

Would that be enough to make a difference? Go back and Google some of those Marlboro pesticide/Diabetes outcome combinations. Check out some of the links. Decide for yourself.

Doctors do know that Diabetics who continue to smoke do worse, and Diabetics are even discovering that vaping pure nicotine instead of smoking seems improve their condition a bit. Both doctors and patients think that’s because the patients aren’t smoking tobacco anymore, confusing tobacco with cigarettes as we’ve all been trained to do, but IMO it’s quite likely because they aren’t inhaling pesticides anymore. But why debate this – why not just try eliminating pesticides in your cigarette smoke and see how you do, for starters.

So Why Not Just Quit Smoking And Start Vaping?

A major ‘real-world’ problem with diabetic smokers substituting vaping for smoking is that vaping a cloud of flavored nicotine just isn’t the same as smoking a cigarette for most smokers. Even those who hate cigarettes and want to quit still actually enjoy the act of smoking, which is one of the strongest reasons so many Diabetic smokers can’t or won’t quit. I have never yet seen a research study that begins with the assumption that people like smoking tobacco and that’s the reason they find it so hard to quit – because they really don’t want to at the same time they really do. So what is it that smokers actually want to quit?

I think many smokers want to quit feeling bad but would like to keep smoking tobacco if they could. I think smokers want a tobacco cigarette that is just tobacco, grown without pesticides and made with only natural flavorings and ingredients. And additives.

Natural additives? Yes of course flavor and aroma additives – just not industrial chemical additives. Natural herbs and fruits and roots and barks and berries – definitely yes. Tobacco has been flavored with those things for thousands of years. The whole FDA thing about “Additives” is a hoax, just like the whole thing about “Warnings” is a hoax. As long as everyone is distracted arguing about mint nobody is going to start asking questions about Azoxystrobin or Penconazole.

Anyone remember the “Tar & Nicotine” hoohah? Anybody ever ask what “Tar” is? The short answer is – no. Technically it’s the condensed smoke of a cigarette, so would that include pesticide residues? If that “Tar” came from Kentucky Reference cigarettes it did, but nobody looked and nobody found, so it remains just “Tar”. Could there be a reason why all that stuff is just lumped together and called “Tar”? Maybe we’re supposed to nod and pass on by and say “Oh yeah, tar.” 

For those Marlboro smokers who don’t care to be manipulated a moment longer here’s a simple little experiment – starting tomorow, switch to pesticide-free organic tobacco cigarettes for one month and see how you feel and what your numbers look like. Don’t change anything else you’re doing – just change from whatever cigarette brand you’re smoking to an organic brand. 

American Spirit Organic cigarettes are a convenient widely available choice — BUT none of their “natural tobacco” brands are organic tobacco and they are NOT free of insecticides and fungicides.  If you decide to free yourself from what pesticides in cigarettes are doing to your health then choose only Americn Spirit organic cigarettes or, better yet, organic American Spirit Roll Your Own (RYO).

So far I have only been able to test one American Spirit brand and while it was less contaminated than several other brands I was able to test, only the American Spirit USDA certified organic tobacco brand is free of pesticides. Calling the other Americn Spirit brands ‘natural’ appears to be a statement of fact but its actually meaningless as far as eliminating your exposure to tobacco product pesticides. Only “USDA Organic” tobacco, no matter what the brand (and I hope there will soon be many choices) is free of those pesticide residues that Marlboro smokers are currently inhaling 600 times a day or more.

Smokers can also buy organic tobacco online and roll their own cigarettes, which is a great way to be able to combine organic tobacco with organic CBD or THC Cannabis, for example, but for a Diabetic smoker who simply wants to try the effects of eliminating inhaled pesticides from their life for a month, pre-rolled American Spirit Organic cigarettes are the obvious choice of convenience. 

Turn your back on the propaganda, check out the science, think for yourself and try switching to organic tobacco, and see how you’re feeling in about a week. Then watch your numbers for a month. Then share what you’ve learned with others.

BONUS SECTION

If you really want to deep dive into the connection between Diabetes symptoms and conditions here’s a pretty confidential list (from a private lab) of most or all the pesticides that various US agencies say are OK to use on tobacco – and then never test for at all in any way in cigarettes. Not all of these are currently in use on US tobacco but worldwide there are all these and many more being used on tobacco that winds up in cigarettes. You’ll be hard-pressed to find this list in any US Government agency publication. This is not information that anyone, government or Tobacco Cartel, want you to have.

This table shows two Federal agencies approving of and regulating pesticides used on tobacco crops, but we know they never test tobacco products for those same pesticides to see what smokers are being exposed to. These pesticides are all approved by EPA, USDA and others for use on tobacco in the US, but not a single one was ever tested for its health effects when inhaled prior to or after its approval for use on tobacco crops. Every one of those pesticides you see in Marlboros was approved with ZERO testing of its health impact when inhaled – which is of course the ONLY way that tobacco is used. Oh, right – chewing tobacco. There’s plenty of science on what happens to mucosal tissue when its chronically exposed to pesticides, and of course the pesticides in that chewing tobacco are absorbed very efficiently. They are also absorbed 100% – none have been combusted by smoking, so all the pesticides in a wad of chew are available to enter blood and lymph. And neither smokers nor chewers, nor pipe nor cigar smokers, nor blunt rollers, are never told that they are in danger and have a choice – not a hint, never. The doctors don’t know either – everybody is dead certain, without the question ever being asked, that its smoking tobacco that’s sickening and killing people and they never go one step further.

There’s been a lot of money spent over the years to ensure that nobody ever thinks to take that line of reasoning another step. Of course its the tobacco. Everybody knows that.

Please keep in mind that many of these residues will never show up even if tobacco products are tested for them because they will be present below the limit of detection. However, as the science proves as you saw earlier, and is proving more every day, many of them are highly bioactive at even the molecular level. Still when you Google any of them in combination with any of the main Diabetic conditions I’m quite certain you may very well wonder why this information has never once been investigated in over 50 years of progress in Smoking & Health Research.

For example, check here’s one of the first links that come up when you search the first pesticide on the list “methamidophos” along with “diabetes”. You won’t hit every time – not every pesticide has been researched for its impact on Diabetes, and in the pesticide approval process nobody asks that question. Probably just an oversight, right? After all, how many people are going to be inhaling methamidophos along with dozens of others on this list? Where would anyone encounter methamidosphos in a normal everyday environment? Hmmm.

40 million or so American smokers and about a Billion people worldwide, that’s who. Oh, and their children if Mommy smokes, and 25% of women who smoke keep right on smoking through pregnancy. So that’s what – a couple of hundred million children born after being exposed to pesticides 24/7 throughout their development.

So now check out the pesticide cocktail ingredients a one-pack smoker is inhaling 600X a day.

Little Cigars, Black & Brown Babies & Extreme Breast Cancer Risk

Two million+ young Black, Brown and Native American women and their unborn female children are at extreme risk of breast cancer, a risk that reaches across generations even to granddaughters. This atrocity is totally hidden and completely ignored by government regulators, and its deadly crippling impact on marginalized people and communities of color is much, much greater than on the privileged classes and races.

Here’s the situation. Young Black, Brown and Native American girls and women who smoke the little cigar brand Swisher Sweets are radically increasing their risk for breast cancer, and their unborn daughter’s risk as well. This is because we know for a fact the women and girls who smoke Swishers are being exposed to @700X the highest concentration of DDT found in any other US consumer product. We know this because I commissioned testing of a small group of major brands in 2018 and little cigars/Swisher Sweets came back with the most extreme levels of contamination (see data below).

The DDT you see in the table below, all 0.816 mg/kg of it, is fresh, potent, and highly reactive, not just trace soil or water residuals from 50 years ago. It was sprayed directly, heavily and very recently on the tobacco used to make Swisher Sweets. There is a total worldwide ban on the use of DDT on crops, by the way. That’s another story, which I document in my book “Smoke No Evil“.

So, here’s why that DDT in Swisher Sweets makes the fact that they are actively marketed to Black, Brown and Native American youth a mega-RICO criminal activity. Because Black, Brown and Native American people are genetically more vulnerable to DDT and neurochemicals and endocrine-disruptors than people with Northern European and Asian genetics, the resulting damage from their deliberate addiction to these fruity little cigars is much more profound. I believe that the heavy marketing of these contaminated tobacco products to marginalized young people can be called genocidal, but at a minimum it is criminal. So, here is the DDT, fungicide and insecticide exposure that smokers of Swisher Sweets are experiencing.

Google any of these neurochemicals and EDCs and see what you find.

Here’s what just the DDT means for Swisher smokers – all 12 million+ of them. 

Let me start with some amazing and well-crafted information on DDT and Breast Cancer from the Breast Cancer Prevention Partners Website that NAILS exactly why young girls and women who smoke Swisher Sweets are increasing their risk of breast cancer and the lifelong threat to their children.

Who is most vulnerable to the health effects of DDT and DDE?

“DDT exposures seem to have the most profound consequences when they occur during critical periods of breast development, including prenatal development, childhood, puberty and pregnancy.[25],[26]

“DDT and DDE cross the placenta, and prenatal exposure appears to increase risk of breast cancer in adulthood.[27] Some of the highest concentrations of DDT and DDE in humans have been found in breast milk, which also makes breast-feeding infants at risk of DDT and DDE exposure.[28],[29] In general, however, the benefits of breast-feeding still outweigh the risks.”

Timing, Duration & Pattern

“For many years it was believed that the harmful effects of all toxic chemicals increased with an increasing dose or exposure, and that there was a low threshold dose below which there was no harmful effect. It was also assumed that both adults and children responded similarly to toxic exposures. Scientific evidence now shows that some chemicals, especially endocrine disrupting compounds, can exert negative effects at extremely low levels of exposure, sometimes with more serious or different effects than at higher doses. The timing, duration and pattern of exposure are just as important as the dose. While it’s good to limit exposure to toxic chemicals and radiation at every stage of life, it is even more important during critical periods, including gestation, childhood and pregnancy.”

Low Dose Effects” (critical understanding of the DDT threat here)

“Except in cases of accidental or occupational exposures, most exposures to chemicals are at “very low doses.” Most chemical safety studies look at the toxic effects of higher doses of chemicals and then assume decreasing toxicity with lower doses. Yet substances that disrupt the body’s own hormones — known as endocrine-disrupting compounds (EDCs)—can exert important biological effects at low doses – including those at which they are found in the everyday environment. These effects are often qualitatively different from those found in traditional toxicology experiments. Low-dose effects are especially likely in developing tissues, during the formative periods when even minuscule levels of naturally occurring hormones determine the normal course of development.[1] EDC effects are often strongest at low doses at developmental stages when the complex hormonal regulation has not yet been established.[2]

I hope that by now you’re interested in the science behind my assertion that this atrocity is actually happening in plain sight. First, please visit the Breast Cancer Prevention Partners website and spend time learning what they have to share – this website offers a lot of very well-researched and well-crafted information on the consequences of even ultra-low dose DDT exposure along with every kind of environmental chemical exposure related to breast cancer – many of which are bundled right along with DDT in Swishers and lots of other brands we haven’t been able to test yet.

Here’s a loosely-curated selection of key research that supports the imperative that the contamination of tobacco products with neurochemicals and ECDs must end. Making this all the more imperative is that the industry has demonstrated that it can produce a low-residue and even organic tobacco cigarette. That means that none of this suffering and death, even unto future generations, need not happen. I believe the solution is awareness more than legislation and hope that you, dear reader, can find a way to help raise that awareness.

DDT and Breast Cancer: Prospective Study of Induction Time and Susceptibility Windows

Conclusions: p, p’-DDT was associated with breast cancer through age 54 years. Risk depended on timing of first exposure and diagnosis age, suggesting susceptibility windows and an induction period beginning in early life. DDT appears to be an endocrine disruptor with responsive breast targets from in utero to menopause

Evidence has accumulated for several chemicals that environmental factors have a stronger effect on breast cancer risk when exposure occurred early in life. The insecticide, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, is an excellent example and is just one of several chemicals for which there seems to be both animal and human evidence for the developmental basis of adult disease.

DDT and Breast Cancer in Young Women: New Data on the Significance of Age at Exposure

https://ehp.niehs.nih.gov/doi/10.1289/ehp.10260

High levels of serum p,pDDT predicted a statistically significant 5-fold increased risk of breast cancer among women who were born after 1931. These women were under 14 years of age in 1945, when DDT came into widespread use, and mostly under 20 years as DDT use peaked. Women who were not exposed to p,pDDT before 14 years of age showed no association between p,pDDT and breast cancer (p = 0.02 for difference by age).

Conclusions

Exposure to p,pDDT early in life may increase breast cancer risk. Many U.S. women heavily exposed to DDT in childhood have not yet reached 50 years of age. The public health significance of DDT exposure in early life may be large.

Ancestral dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) exposure promotes epigenetic transgenerational inheritance of obesity 

https://bmcmedicine.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1741-7015-11- 228

BMC Medicine 2013 11:228

Background

Ancestral environmental exposures to a variety of environmental factors and toxicants have been shown to promote the epigenetic transgenerational inheritance of adult onset disease. The present work examined the potential transgenerational actions of the insecticide dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) on obesity and associated disease.

Conclusions

Observations indicate ancestral exposure to DDT can promote obesity and associated disease transgenerationally. The etiology of disease such as obesity may be in part due to environmentally induced epigenetic transgenerational inheritance.

Interaction between genetic polymorphism of cytochrome P450-1B1 and environmental pollutants in breast cancer risk

CYP polymorphisms, mediated by long term OCs exposure, activate protein dynamics via allosteric regulation of mitochondria’s electron transport [70] and related metabolic pathways [71]. 

The framework of all known phenotype and disease gene associations, could be indicative of the common genetic origin of many diseases. Colorectal, pancreatic, hepatic, thyroid, breast cancer, renal cancer and sarcoma are involved in the correlation between OCs exposure and carcinogenicity.

The presence of a CYP1A1 MspI (rs4646903) polymorphism associated with OCs exposure may affect spermatogenesis by modifying the metabolism of androgens. It was concluded that increased DDE-DDT (Dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene-DDT) exposure affects semen motility, concentration and morphology, especially under the existence of CYP1A1 MspI (rs4646903) polymorphism.

Finally, to make the point that it isn’t only smokers of Swishers who are at risk, here are a few more of the brands I was able to get tested in 2018 for the “Smoke No Evil” trials.

Marlboros don’t have any DDT! Yay! Or Camels either! Yippee! We’re safe! Aren’t we?

“Smoke No Evil” Free Review Copies Available

Hi! Thanks for visiting. Just click here to request your free review copy of “Smoke No Evil”. That will send me your email address I’ll send you a PDF review copy.

After you have a chance to read it, I hope that you’ll add your voice to those finally demanding investigation and full accountability for the Tobacco Cartel for this previously unknown galaxy of criminal acts involving some of the most dangerous bioactive chemicals on earth.

I’ve written this book because “smoking-related disease” continues to destroy millions of smokers and families worldwide every year with no accountability.

I believe that many if not most of those deaths are preventable with a new, evidence-based approach – regulating pesticides in Tobacco Cartel products using existing consumer product pesticide residue limits as the standard. That’s it. Simply requiring that tobacco products meet minimum pesticide residue standards, like those imposed on Tobacco’s nearest comparable crop Cannabis. This makes the legislative process easy. Cnnabis is the only other consumable product that like Tobacco is also combusted and inhaled, and pesticide residues are already recognized as a serious health hazard on Cannabis flowers inhaled by smokers and there are residue limits because of the threat they represent.

Ludicrously, Tobacco Cartel products are exempt from pesticide regulation. If you go to your state health authority they will tell you that they have no authority to regulate tobacco products, including pesticide residues on those products, and if you go to the Feds they will tell you that they don’t inspect tobacco products for pesticide residues although – they righteously explain – hey do st limits on pesticides used by American tobacco growers. Do they inspect the leaf once it leaves the field? No. More importantly, do they check the leaf coming in from Cartel companies in Brazil and India and others where even DDT, supposedly banned worldwide, is sprayed without regulation on tobacco? No. American tobacco products simply don’t contain that much American-grown tobacco anymore when it can be grown overseas and brought in without any regulation or inspection – just a meaningless self-certification. 

This book documents what the Cartel has known and kept secret for generations: that smoking-related disease and death may be caused not as much by Tobacco as by exempted & concealed super-toxic xenobiotics used by Cartel companies purely to boost profits, free of any effective regulation.

I don’t claim that smoking Tobacco, even organic Tobacco is safe; I do say that inhaling a proven carcinogenic/neurotoxic/genotoxic fungicide/insecticide cocktail a hundred times or more a day, from whatever source, combusted or vaporized, will surely and certainly destroy human energy, health & life.

This book offers hard evidence, new facts, and numerous peer-reviewed research citations to raise awareness that the Tobacco Cartel has, in plain view, engaged in a trans-generational conspiracy to commit crimes against humanity on a scale beyond imagination.

I hope that you’ll consider the evidence on its merits.

Sweet Cheap Poison At The Bodega

Hello! This blog post is now part of my newly published ebook “Smoke No Evil“, which is published on Amazon but its available free for the asking to visitors like you – see below.

I here’s nothing wrong with smoking Tobacco. It’s as safe as wine, beer, or cheeseburgers. It’s the Tobacco Cartel’s products that sicken and kill. “Smoking-related Death” has nothing to do with Tobacco. Many people understand the truth, but don’t know the whole story.

Just click here to request your free review copy of “Smoke No Evil”. After you read it, I hope that you’ll add your voice to those demanding investigation and accountability for the Tobacco Cartel. My hope is also that the knowledge in this book can be life-changing for smokers who are trapped in addiction to commercial Tobacco Cartel products, and life-affirming for those who already understand and smoke or vape only organic tobacco whenever possible.

Whether you smoke, vape, or chew tobacco this book destroys the myth that tobacco is going to harm you. Using data and hard evidence, this book proves that it’s not tobacco killing millions of smokers every year, and it never has been. You’ll see how the “science” used to prove that Tobacco is a killer is pure fraud and deception on the part of the Tobacco Cartel, and pure hypocrisy on the part of regulators and anti-tobacco propagandists.

My hope is that the knowledge here can be life-changing for smokers who are trapped in addiction to commercial Tobacco Cartel products, particularly people who are members of oppressed minority communities where the damage from pesticides in cheap tobacco products is magnified by genetic vulnerability.

How We Can End The Obscene Oregon Cannabis Pesticide Laws

compelOregon’s Cannabis pesticide laws are bringing the entire Oregon Cannabis industry to its knees.

This is not just an Oregon issue. There is nowhere to hide. Nobody is safe.

Anti-Cannabis forces in other states are watching this new tactic to subvert the will of the people, and they can hardly wait to implement it themselves. 

We must work together to stop this new anti-Cannabis tactic in its tracks, before it spreads and destroys what we have all worked so hard to achieve.

We can do just that, because if there has ever been a clear case of a State violating citizens’ rights that are protected by the Fourteenth Amendment, this is it.

The “Equal Protection” clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the US Constitution has, for over a hundred years, been the foundation for compelling fair and equal treatment of citizens by powerful anti-social elements in government at all levels. 

The “Equal Protection” clause reads:

“No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

That simple clause gives us all the legal tools we need to defeat the anti-Cannabis conspirators in Oregon, and prevent them from from spreading their poison nationwide.

I want to be clear that I don’t believe that the Oregon State Legislature is anti-Cannabis; these regulations may even be well-meaning on the part of many Oregon legislators and regulators. However, given how the anti-Cannabis forces operate across the country I strongly suspect a “back door” effort here. In either case, the threat is real, and must be addressed.

Here’s why the Oregon Cannabis community needs “Equal Protection”.

Oregon is violating the “Equal Protection” clause by imposing pesticide testing regulations on the Cannabis industry that are not imposed on an absolutely equivalent industry – Big Tobacco. Big Tobacco is free to sell its contaminated products without any testing or regulation, but now the Cannabis industry is being forced to comply with regulations designed to make it impossible to stay in business.

Make no mistake – these pesticide testing laws have nothing to do with protecting peoples’ health, and everything to do with destroying the Cannabis industry in Oregon first, and then in every other state where Cannabis has defeated the forces of darkness.

Of course, nobody can doubt that ethical Cannabis growers want to do everything they can to ensure the health, safety and well-being of people who use their beautiful flowers for medical reasons or for pure pleasure. There is also no doubt that Cannabis growers can be self-regulating with regard to quality, just like the wine industry that is the model for so many businesses in this new field.

But the regulations currently being forced on Cannabis growers by the State of Oregon go far beyond what is necessary to promote health and safety, and the fact that they are imposed on Cannabis growers who are for the greatest part ethical, caring people, but not on an industry that is notorious for literally killing millions of people worldwide with its contaminated, poisonous products, cannot be tolerated or ignored.

By imposing pesticide testing on Cannabis growers but not on “Big Tobacco”, Oregon clearly violates the “Equal Protection” clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. These discriminatory, anti-Cannabis laws hurt everyone in the community – Cannabis producers, Medical Cannabis patients, Recreational Cannabis smokers, physicians and clinics, dispensaries and retailers.

The State of Oregon must be forced to grant “Equal Protection” to the Cannabis Industry immediately before further irreversible harm and damage is done.

I believe strongly that the State of Oregon will never be willing (or able) to impose pesticide testing requirements on the Tobacco industry comparable to what they have imposed on the Cannabis industry, and so because of the legal pressure that can be brought to compel the State to apply the “Equal Protection” clause, they will back off of the Cannabis industry and agree that self-regulation is more fair than broad, compulsory testing, and is an equally effective model for Oregon. If we can accomplish this in Oregon, other states will follow. 

We can only do this once we have demonstrated that Tobacco products are contaminated with far more dangerous pesticide and agri-chemical residues than the relatively minor issues found so far with some Cannabis growers. At that point the State will have a clear choice, and Cannabis industry self-regulation will become the clear choice for Oregon legislators.

We Can Do This By Working Together!

We can compel Oregon to comply with the “Equal Protection” clause through legal action, and to accept that there are other, better, voluntary ways for the Oregon Cannabis industry to act together to ensure the health and well-being of the entire Oregon Cannabis community. I am hearing from readers that a solution that they would prefer is for the Oregon Legislature to put in place a properly funded provision that would enable Cannabis growers to voluntarily submit samples for testing and at the same time certify that they have not used any pesticides in growing their crop. This would earn them a provisional OK to go ahead with selling the crop, which could then be certified when testing was completed. Better yet, some suggest, would be for the Legislature to put a surcharge on the entire industry, from grower to consumer, which would be used to pay for all testing rather than imposing the costs just on growers.

The Latest Triumph Of Eugenics – Wax

The premise of this post is that the recreational and medical Cannabis legalization movement has quite possibly been perverted to serve the ends of an invisible cabal of wealthy and powerful people whose goal for centuries has been to find an effective way to rid the world of human beings that they consider undesirable. I hope and trust that none of my readers will take what I am about to say as a criticism of the Cannabis legalization movement, nor of the thousands of legitimate researchers who are probing the intimate nature of Cannabis in search of improved strains for both medical and consciousness-enhancing purposes.

The Legacy Of Hatred That Is Eugenics

The wealthy and powerful people who have been at the core of the Eugenics movement for many generations are driven by a perverted but unwavering belief that there are far too many unproductive, undesirable, morally and physically inferior people in the world.

However, these would-be members of the Master Race have always had a major problem. How do you get rid of all those defective people who are fouling up the your own private, personal gene pool – AKA planet Earth – without anyone knowing what you’re up to?

Mass murder doesn’t work very well – you wind up going down in history as monsters and criminals. Just ask the Nazis or the Serbs.

Birth control schemes don’t work very well either because there are powerful institutions who WANT people to have as many children as possible no matter how sick and poor they are pre-ordained to be by the rigged political and economic game. Just ask the Catholic Church.

While war certainly gets rid of a lot of people, from the Eugenicist’s point of view it also gets rid of a lot of the best young breeding stock. War is messy, inefficient, and at least marginally counterproductive – although it is certainly a profitable racket. Just ask Dick Cheney and George Bush (either George).

Provoking revolutions and class warfare aren’t the answer either – you may get rid of the losing side almost completely, but there are always just as many undesirable low-lifes left alive in any winning side, so you haven’t done anything but purge a small segment of the problem. Just ask the Khmer Rouge or the Taliban.

And of course race and class-based official oppression has proven to be a bust. You can certainly starve, beat, imprison, lynch and execute huge numbers of those you consider undesirable, but some always seem to survive and in some cases they are even able to throw out the institutions you have built to squash them. Just ask South Africa and the United States.

What to do? Well, the Eugenics movement has attracted a lot of suck-up scholars over the centuries – people who trade on their education and their intelligence to cozy up to the wealthy and powerful by devising theoretical solutions. Jonathan Swift made great fun of these sycophants with his “Modest Proposal”, which was aimed directly at the army of scholars who were laboring hard at the time to win the approval of wealthy patrons by coming up with a workable plan for getting rid of the “Undesirables de jour”, e.g. the Irish. But even the most clever and articulate mockery can’t penetrate the impervious shell of those who profoundly believe that they are smarter than everybody else on earth, and so in spite of Jonathan Swift the search continued unabated for the “Ultimate Solution”, as the Germans called their ghastly riff on the Eugenics theme.

But isn’t this all ancient history? Not quite. Anyone who may think that the Eugenics movement these days is only composed of a few crusty old codgers with more money than soul like Donald Trump, and a couple of their high-paid flacks like Rush Limbaugh, has fallen into the trap set for such thinking long ago. That trap is to discount who and what these people are, to underestimate the extent of their power and influence, and to think that this is all just a ghost story designed to scare little kiddies.

It’s true that you don’t hear Eugenics discussed publicly anymore, the way you did a hundred and more years ago. But that’s simply because the people at the core of the movement have learned that you have to keep very quiet about your opinions on this matter because if the popular media and the progressive/liberal side of the political spectrum catch a whiff of someone holding these views they are crucified and no amount of wealth or power can save them. Just ask Charles Lindbergh and Prescott Bush.

Make no mistake – the Eugenics movement is very much alive and well today. Go to virtually any gathering of the wealthy and privileged ( like Bohemian Grove) and select a hundred people at random and I’ll bet you’ll find that at least half of them firmly believe, but are very cautious about saying, that the world would be better off if several billion people could somehow be made to simply disappear. And you would also find that within that group of believers there are quite a few who are actively using their wealth and power to finance and promote schemes designed to achieve precisely that end.

If you are interested in getting some detailed background information on the Eugenics movement’s evolution from the 1800’s through the early 20th Century you can do no better than to review “Eugenics & Other Evils” by G. K. Chesterton. This is a free book available for the Kindle, and gives the modern reader a chilling insight into the origins and aims of this worldwide secret society. I only ask that as you read this book you keep in mind that nothing has changed – in fact, the movement has accelerated in contemporary times.

A reviewer on Amazon summed the book up beautifully: “This book by GK is far more than an historical curiosity; the arguments he sets forth enable us to see far more clearly the dangers of conceding to a government, a group of elites, or even a vague movement, even a fraction of our rights and responsibilities concerning our own life, death, and progeneration. In the first third of the book, GK utterly dismantles the superficial logic of eugenics. In the second third, he exposes the real objectives of the movement that lay beneath the surface. The final third is a compilation of truly bone chilling articles and letters written by eugenicists of the period.”

However, the purpose of this post is not as much to review the Eugenics movement as it is to share with you an insight that I’ve just had while reading about the newest Cannabis-based craze – Wax.

I believe this secret society of genocidal freaks has finally come up with a workable strategy to destroy what they consider the “undesirable” parts of the human race in a way that not only nobody can point to them as the perpetrators, but nearly everybody will believe that those who are destroyed did it to themselves.

It is in many ways a perfect crime – there is no smoking gun, no motive, no opportunity, and no crime, but millions of what the self-anointed Master Race considers so many cockroaches will simply check into the great roach motel in the sky all by themselves.

But first, here is a brief background on what I believe has been one of their core strategies for many years, a strategy that looks to me like it is finally coming to fruition through an innocently-named little item called “Wax”.

1. Create a set of conditions where drugs that people desire are both illegal and readily available
2. Count on the well-established propensity of people to take these drugs regardless of the risk, and most importantly
3. Be sure that you control the production and distribution of these drugs – behind the scenes of course – so that you can keep making money while executing your plan to destroy the undesirables
4. Find ways to keep boosting the effects of the natural drugs you start out with to the point where they become lethal – but only in ways that can’t be traced back to you.

It’s important that you start by making the natural drugs like Cannabis, Opium and alcohol illegal because that not only creates conditions under which people who use them can be controlled by police, but it also creates huge opportunities for profit on the part of the Eugenicists acting through their network of banks, government agencies, and industrial organizations. It’s also important that you cater discreetly to the fact that many drug users – especially the young ones – are never satisfied with the highs that the original natural drugs offer, but are always seeking new, better, stronger highs.

The invisible oligarchs behind the Eugenics movement that has spanned generations know that given the opportunity, a substantial number of the “Untermenchen” of the world will happily destroy themselves in pursuit of ever more powerful, and ever more deadly highs. The Eugenics movement controls such wealth and influence that it directs the policies of governments worldwide, and for generations it has gone to great lengths to ensure that the masses are given every possible opportunity to destroy themselves and their offspring. Its invisible hand can be seen in the dumbing-down of the masses through a deliberate, trans-generational sabotage of the educational system, through the deliberate poisoning and subtle starvation of the masses with cheap, industrialized food, and – the premise of this post – through providing a never-ending parade of toxic chemical enhancements to what begin as natural, plant-based mind-altering, consciousness-expanding drugs.

The Eugenics movement at some point figured out that Human Beings, and especially young males, just can’t leave well enough alone when it comes to getting high. For thousands of years the indigenous peoples of the Andes used Coca Leaf as medicine and as a source of relaxation and meditation. And for as many thousands of years, indigenous peoples from Morocco to Lebanon to Nepal used Cannabis Flowers as medicine and as a source of relaxation and medication.

The Europeans, of course, had been using Alcohol as their relaxant of choice, beginning with simple home-brewed fermented grain in the time of the Neanderthals. At some point someone discovered how to extract the pure alcohol from the bubbling mash, and soon Europeans were killing themselves off in droves with distilled spirits, but since Alcohol was suddenly a major industrial profit center nobody except a few loony ministers cared. The slaughtering by Alcohol continues unabated.

The Spanish first discovered Coca Leaf when they swarmed like cockroaches over the mountains of South America in search of gold and silver to loot. Coca Leaf quickly entered the botanical pharmacopeia of Europe and before long Coca Leaf tonics were curing an enormous range of the diseases of “modern civilization”.

Then along came some clever German chemists who, noting the remarkable properties of the Coca Leaf, reasoned that there would be great profit in identifying the element in the leaf that is responsible for its effects, so they set about identifying it and finding ways to extract and concentrate it. Voila – Cocaine, which was hundreds of times more potent as a medicine than natural Coca Leaf and which, quite incidentally, happened to also be deadly. And – leave it to American ingenuity – somewhere along the line some garage chemist came up with Crack Cocaine, and a whole new wave of slaughter began.

Tobacco products are another triumph of the Eugenics movement, evolving from a pure, natural leaf enjoyed by all classes to an industrial chemical product containing no leaf but plenty of biotoxins, reproduction disruptors, DNA breakers, and other chemicals that ensure that smokers – the great majority of whom these days are the lower classes of the world – will die in droves after contributing a large proportion of their meager financial resources to this murderous industry throughout their significantly shortened lifetime, and will have children who are deformed and terminally damaged from before birth. The cigarette industry is an ultimate achievement in population control.

One of the breathtakingly ingenious achievements of the Eugenics movement in the faux-Tobacco field was the introduction of clove cigarettes, or Bidis, to young people in the 70s and 80s. Bidis are manufactured from cigarette butts collected by street urchins from the gutters of Asian cities, and if you have ever been to Asia, or even if you simply have a good imagination, you know what those cigarette butts have been soaking in. So these products are literally composed of shit and piss and other disgusting body fluids and industrial chemicals, all neatly disguised by clove oil – itself a potent carcinogen – and of course cleverly fortified with nicotine. With Bidis the so-called tobacco industry was finally able to prove that you can get people to actually buy and smoke shit as long as you disguise the flavor and aroma and load it up with nicotine. What a coup!

But all of these deadly but largely invisible “accomplishments” of the eugenics plotters pale beside their newest trick.

I have little doubt that Eugenicists have been stealthy supporters of the Marijuana legalization movement, not because they were under any illusions that Cannabis itself would help them advance their goal of eliminating as many “undesirables” as possible but because they knew that once Cannabis was legalized it wouldn’t be long before something very predictable would happen.

They knew that once the legalization threshold had been crossed, a virtual army of amateur chemists would take to their garage labs and begin manipulating the Cannabis high just like chemists did with the Coca Leaf, the Tobacco Leaf, and the Opium Poppy.

Well, the Eugenicists were right on target. As more and more markets have been opened to legal Cannabis, more and more “enhanced” Cannabis products have appeared and the latest iteration, a genre innocently called “Wax” has now appeared, and “Wax” is precisely the kind of drug that will finally do the job that the Eugenics movement wants done.

A recent article in BuzzFeed gives a complete rundown on how “Wax” operates and although the article doesn’t connect these issues with any kind of conspiracy if you understand what the Eugenicists have been up to for years it quickly becomes evident that here is a perfect Eugenics storm. I urge you to read the whole article but here are just a few choice quotes.

“We see stuff that is dripping with residual solvent. It’s running with it, literally dripping — more contaminants almost than product,” said University of California, Davis, analytical chemistry professor Don Land, who works with a major Northern California–based marijuana-testing lab called Steep Hill Laboratories.”

“No one is quite sure how many parts per million of butane, if any, might be safe to leave in hash oil. Steep Hill’s chief research officer, Kymron deCesare, who also oversees all of the analytical chemistry labs at UC Davis, said that the recommended Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) numbers that exist for butane inhalation refer only to exposure in a work environment over the course of an eight-hour shift.”

“You can’t apply those numbers to this,” he said, referring to dabs. “We’ve never done the studies on what happens if you’re inhaling a higher concentration than is allowed, a hundred or a thousand times as much as the limit, and you’re doing it repeatedly, over and over again, in a very intense, momentary way.”

“The most blatant risk comes from unsafe pesticides, which are found in weed from Colorado to Nebraska to California. Rodger Voelker of the OG Analytical laboratory in Oregon, which has legalized both medical and recreational marijuana, said over half of the several thousand BHO samples he has tested contained illegal pesticides, including one known to cause brain damage. As bad as these toxic compounds might be in smoked weed, they’re made several times worse when they are concentrated and dabbed, chemists who have analyzed the product say.”

“If people were aware of the level of pesticides we’re finding, especially in concentrates, compounds that are absolutely banned by the EPA for human consumption — people have no idea. They hear it’s tested and it looks clean, but they’re being lied to,” Voelker said.”

“In addition, all BHO contains concentrated versions of the lubricating chemicals added to lighter fluid to make sure the butane flows well through pumps. As several chemists repeated to BuzzFeed News, there is no such thing as food- or medical-grade butane. Even companies in Colorado and Washington use lighter fluid. While butane itself has a low boiling point and is not difficult to remove using a vacuum oven, these heavier, harmful compounds — including benzene, methylbutane, neopentane, and hexane — remain.”

“Finally, the least understood health risk posed by hash oil is that of plant waxes, which make up about 15–20% of most BHO. All plants are coated in a film of lipids known as cuticle wax: This is what makes bell peppers shiny. When you smoke marijuana, those waxes burn up, but when vaporizing BHO, the lipids get concentrated and go directly to the lungs, where some chemists believe they form nodules called granulomas on the tissue. “We have no idea how many people are suffering lung damage from cuticle waxes,” Steep Hill’s deCesare said.

All of the modes of action described above are cumulative, and taken together they describe a product that meets the Eugenics criteria perfectly.

So while Wax silently goes about its business of destroying DNA, brain cells, and reproductive organs, the target population as always has all the answers and, as the Eugenicists know they will, they just keep on dabbin’ and telling themselves little stories, like:

Wax is made from Cannabis, so how could it possibly hurt anyone. I mean, its medicine, man.

Wax has a lot of cute names, so how could it be dangerous. I mean, who wouldn’t love to be smoking something called Budder, Crumble, Shatter, or Honeycomb?

Wax delivers quick, monster highs, which is good. I mean who wants to go to the trouble of smoking a lot of weed when all it takes is a dab or two?

Wax is new and sexy, which means that I am cutting edge, baby.

Wax is legal – or at least it is not illegal, so I’m smoking something that “The Man” can’t touch. Way cool.

You don’t drop dead after one dab, or even after a hundred. I mean I have friends who dab every day. So what’s the problem?

The assholes who are bitching about the dangers of “Wax” are just trying to ruin the fun, so who cares what they say?

From the point of view of the Eugenics movement, Wax is the perfect instrument to achieve their goal of wiping out the ability of huge numbers of marginalized young people to reproduce. It is stealthy, effective, and can’t be traced back to them. And it sounds completely harmless. It’s not like sticking a needle in your arm, is it? And by the time these young people discover that they either can’t reproduce, or that the children that they do produce are defective, “non-viable offspring” as the pesticide industry phrase goes, it will be long past the point where anyone can say that this was all a deliberate, carefully calculated plan.

So am I just a crazy old paranoid fart who’s stuck in the past and trying to spoil all the fun? Could be, I guess. Party on kids. Pardon me while I go smoke a flower, or maybe make myself a cup of Coca tea (don’t I wish).
