Robert PROCTOR: Tobacco Control is NOT Tobacco Kontrol. Man Who Forgot “Forgotten” Study by “Forgotten Father of Experimental Tobacco Carcinogenesis"
From a dispatch received this morning from our friend:
"[...] which is why the front group FOREST (Freedom Organisation for the Right to Enjoy Smoking Tobacco) once offered my 1988 book, Racial Hygiene: Medicine Under the Nazis, for sale as "vital" " (Robert PROCTOR)
"Robert PROCTOR is the author of this month’s “Tobacco Control” Editorial . He wrote in the past about what he called “forgotten” historical studies (on tobacco and cancer) and their authors [2-3].
However, what many people ignore is that he himself strangely “forgot” to mention a not-politically-correct, though-historically-correct, study by one of them (Angel ROFFO)  apparently because that study deals with an official “public health” smoking epidemic (i.e. ““waterpipe””) for which the above mentioned journal, among others (and together with WHO TFI, WHO TobReg, etc) has mobilised many forces."
Here a question is asked: “Is this man entitled to give us a lecture when he violates ethics in a so-called "peer-reviewed" scientific «Review», simply because a cancerologist tackled a taboo issue ?” 
Also relevant and officially published elsewhere: "Did we call up Great Ethics because the author (a historian of science, by the way) of a review on "the forgotten father of experimental tobacco carcinogenesis", forgot, in his turn, to mention an important study on narghile (hookah) carried on by this "father" ? No, we just mentioned this fact. Full stop [...]"
