This RWJF research grant is just too good to be true........Causation and Selection in the Relationship of Job Loss to Health in the United States.
How interesting that RWJF is funding this study, as they are responsible for putting many people in the unemployment line due to their funding of smoking ban legislation, for profit I might add. It is also interesting that they are providing their own research subjects, those of us in the hospitality industry. I haven't heard mention yet, if we unemployed at the hands of RWJF, will be compensated by RWJF. Full text of research paper here.
RWJF, in owning $5.4 billion of Johnson & Johnson stock, and as J & J is the largest manufacturer of smoking cessation products (Nicoderm, Nicoderm CQ), RWJF has a clear conflict of interest in funding the non-profits to lobby lawmakers for smoking ban legislation. And as I demonstrated in the previous post RWJF doesn't mind throwing its money around to manipulate research findings, nearly every University in the country as well as the AMA has accepted RWJF money.
