So without further ado, here is a video presenting some evidence for a vaccine that will stop you smoking. Thats right, this vaccine is being developed to stop smoking. Maybe the anti-vaccers will say this is taking away free will, or is the governments method to curb health costs. I am not sure what they will say, but it will be something.
It is rather remarkable to think, that this could be a way to prevent smoking. To be fair, I really do not have a problem with smoking and I do think smokers are very unfairly discriminated against. I also believe that this is based on a lot of dodgy science about second hand smoke. When in reality the reason most people do not like second hand smoke is that it irritates them and has nothing to do with health. Its like a screaming baby on an airplane everyone wants the darn kid to shut up.
To clarify further, I am not sure how a tests can be accurate for second hand smoke when we are exposed to way worse toxins in our air everyday. In this way how are we sure that the effects we are seeing in tests (small increases) are actually related to second hand smoke and not chance. But, the fact that smoking is bad for the individual doing the smoking I will not contest.
