The wrath of Health Minister Dr Leslie Ramsammy was unleashed Wednesday when he highlighted the fact that tobacco companies are able to make massive profits at the expense of the health of a nation?s population.He made reference to the Demerara Tobacco Company which was able to rake in a $928M profit, a fact which was highlighted in the entity?s 2008 annual report.But according to the Minister, the profit represents monies taken from people who are being killed in the process.He opined that the efforts to reveal its profit simply suggests that the tobacco company is proud of the fact that it can make people sick and ultimately lend to their untimely death.Dr Ramsammy further emphasised that he is not afraid to speak up about the matter as he is bestowed with the responsibility to represent the Guyanese people.?The battle lines were drawn a long time ago against the tobacco company. I have absolutely no apologies and I don?t want anybody to think that I am being diplomatic in the fight. I am the Minister of Health of Guyana and my job is very clear. It is to protect the health of the people.?The Minister pointed out that tobacco in absolutely no positive way contributes to the health of people,[url=$%&/]Cheap Jerseys NFL[/url], emphasising that it is in fact a killer that creates diseases that could impact the life cycle. ?It affects you from the first puff because it leads you unto the road of addiction and then during your life cycle it creates many diseases that cause great illnesses, loss of productivity?and it contributes to people not being able to reach their life potential, then it brings untold deaths.?He pointed out that the documented deaths are only the beginning of the situation as the Ministry is not fully aware of all of the deaths that have occurred. And according to the Minister, not even those within the tobacco company have been able to deny the many salient facts about tobacco that highlight its negative impact on the society.He disclosed that the industry has for almost two decades conceded that tobacco is a killer.?There have been documents that have been released by the tobacco companies that have shown that for at least 50 years they have known that this product is a killer. In the first part of that period they played with words and they diplomatically denied that story. In the last two decades they have backed away and have not denied that it is a killer.?And according to the Minister, governments of every country have since agreed to the notion that tobacco is a killer when they signed unto the World Health Organization?s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC).As such,[url=$%&/]Cheap Jerseys From China[/url], local representative of the Pan American Health Organisation,[url=$%&/]Cheap NFL Jerseys[/url], Dr Kathleen Israel, regarded Wednesday?s workshop as a very important one that follows on the heels of many similar activities undertaken in Guyana in response to the need to control the use of tobacco.She pointed out that the forum was designed to counteract the impact of the tobacco industry,[url=$%&/]Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping[/url], highlighting that the objective of the entities within the industry is to improve sales and to generate profit.However,[url=$%&/]Jerseys NFL Wholesale[/url], she emphasised that the purpose of the health sector is to safeguard the health of the population.?We know…we are not guessing, we know that tobacco kills. We know that tobacco use is dangerous to health and life. We know that even if you don?t smoke but you come in contact with cigarette smoke on a regular basis your health can be jeopardised.?And because the health sector?s objective is distinctly different to that of the tobacco industry,[url=$%&/]NFL Jerseys China Wholesale[/url], Dr Israel highlighted that no partnership efforts can be forged between the two.She commended the Minister and his Ministry as well as the other partners for the efforts that have been put in place to derive a tobacco control initiative by implementing some of the articles of the FCTC.Training workshops similar to the one held on Wednesday are being undertaken by many individuals around the world through the John Hopkins University Distance Education Programme on E-Health.
