You may have noticed the new "war" on sugar? That started the day that J&J bought Splenda.

Your "friends" at Johnson and Johnson created the second hand smoke myth to promote the sales of their Nicoderm, Nicorette, NIcotrol, and Nicoderm CQ. Their "philanthropic arm" the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, grant funds all the lobbying groups to promote bans. These include the Cancer Society, (and you thought they wanted to cure cancer!) the Heart and Lung Associations, the American Medical Society, even the Dental Society! They also grant fund all the "scientists" to produce pro ban "studies" and "polls". Always follow the money. J&J and their friends also spend a fortune on ads from media, such as this TV station, and your local paper. These people do not care if small, locally owned businesses close! Little neighborhood bars do not buy big ads like the big out of state owned chain restaurant bars. THey are licking their chops wanting all the little bars to close! And the media just doesn't care!
