«Health Debate» Between Maziak and… Maziak ! Renewed Antismoking Media Propaganda by “Journalist” Matt Erickson for The Kansas City Star
BBC NEWS: Shisha 450 Times Worse than Cigarettes, New Research Reveals. Swine Flu Link Now Established
BBC. UK Shisha Experts 450 More Dangerous for Public Health Than Cigarette Experts. BBC Accused of Gross Exaggeration
Very democratic and well-balanced debate, isn’t it ?
Then, we have now Matt Erickson for the Kansas City Star, offering a “Health Debate” between Wasim Maziak and Wasim Maziak himself !
Hookah trend growing among young people
For your information, this expert is one of the main authors of the WHO erroneous and biased report on hookah smoking (read well, particularly the Comments section published almost 2 years later to understand that he had not declared his authorship at the beginning...)
We also had not so recently the case of the antismoking journal Addiction (Editor-in-Chief Robert West) which became famous for a the tribune it offered to Maziak. It had the cheek to label it (don’t laugh) “For Debate” ! A debate between whom and whom ? Between a patented antismoker and another patented antismoker of course !
““Waterpipe””™: Time for Action on Scientific Integrity and Accountability, Sacking, and Paying Back Funding of Useless Biased ““Waterpipe””™ Research
Antismoking journals, biomedical (as Addiction in this case) or popular (The Kansas City Star) or even the BBC, lie when using the word “debate”. They can't allow any scientific debate. And keep in mind their permanent rant about violation of "democracy" and "freedom of press" in remote countries. Rubbish !
ASH (Action on Smoking and Health). ““ Shisha 200 times worse than a cigarette” say Middle East experts””. 27 March 2007 (prepared by Martin Dockrell)(accessed 13 June, 2008). Interview with Wasim Maziak and Alan Shihadeh:
“Three leading experts from across the Middle East have warned that excluding “shisha bars” when England goes smokefree on July 1 could worsen the grave inequalities in health that already affect ethnic minorities.”
