Tobacco Derived Poison Delivery Systems /Capitalism or Crime Against Humanity? Tobacco derived poison delivery systems (TDPDS) are among the largest, if not the largest, cause of non-natural disease and premature death on the planet (with the possible exception of war and policy induced starvation). This fact is so well known that governments, such as here in Canada, require specific warning labels on every package of TDPDS that are marketed. They also require graphic pictures of diseased body parts. The government prints and posts signs in tobacco merchant's premises that state that one in every two people who smoke TDPDS will die as a result of that practice. The current crisis in health care is due to an inordinate amount of patients requiring hospital care due to specific diseases directly related to TDPDS. Recently the doctor in charge of the major hospital in this city stated that TDPDS patients account for fifty percent of hospital operating costs. The sale of TDPDS drain a significant portion of discretionary income from the middle to low income wage earners, reducing their buying power for other consumer goods and thus contributing to a lower quality lifestyle as well as to a lower quality life. Is selling TDPDS to people until they die from it equatable to pulling gold teeth from people's heads and pushing them into a poison gas chamber?
