Covid and cancer
Cancer kills more, yet cigarettes legal
Recently published, the No. 1 cause of death in Washington state is cancer. The newest annual figure is 13,103. The cancer that causes the most deaths is lung cancer. The overwhelming cause of lung cancer is smoking.
Reported as of Sept. 3, covid-19 deaths in Washington state totaled 7,256, which is an annual rate of about 4,354 or one third of the cancer death rate.
Covid-19 vaccines were developed and promoted as the solution to this declared pandemic. At first we were encouraged by medical and political leaders to get vaccinated. Later we were offered bribes with free stuff. Now it’s gone to threats to take away our jobs and our guaranteed freedoms if we don’t take the “jabs.”
Meanwhile, in stores all across the state, cigarettes are being sold and earning our local governments $3.03 per pack. That’s cigarettes, the cause of the top form of cancer deaths. That’s cancer that kills thee times as many people as covid-19.
