The World Health Organization has warned health professionals working in tobacco control not to become too closely involved with drug companies that produce smoking cessation products.

The warning came last month at a meeting on smoking prevention in Madrid that was hosted by the National Committee to Prevent Smoking, which represents most Spanish anti-tobacco organisations, and which was sponsored by Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline, and McNeil—all of which make treatments to help smoking cessation.

Armando Peruga, programme manager of WHO’s Tobacco Free Initiative, advised health professionals “to be independent and guided by scientific evidence.”

“We have to keep a distance from the tobacco industry, but we also have to maintain some distance from any other industry that can have a commercial interest in this issue,” he said.

But the truth is that pro-smoking ban lobbyists like the American Lung Association, American Cancer Society, Tobacco Free Kids, numerous colleges, universities, health departments, and even the American Medical Association have received nearly half a billion dollars to lobby for smoking bans by the maker(s) of Nicoderm, Nicotrol, Nicorette, Commit, etc. via J&J partner Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF). Which makes the promotion of smoking bans a highly dubious, big business practice.
