I am reminded of the cigarette of old when I see how a lot of the medical community reacts to diet and obesity nowadays….they were wrong about cigarettes….and heroin…and cocaine…and thorazine……but i digress……check out the old cigarette ads….for your health mind you!

    Yes! An older friend of mine lost her mother to cancer because her mother’s doctor had prescribed cigarettes to her as a weight loss aid when she was young.

    I am confident that years from now we’re going to see the obesity panic through the same lens.

    That is precisely why we all need to remember things like these cigarette ads and some of the more bizarre fad diets, etc. of days gone by.

    I’m so in love with you now for compiling all of these pictures.

    You rule!

    I remember reading a pregnancy book from the forties or fifties where the recommendation for gaining too much weight during pregnancy was to smoke. Twisted my tummy a bit.
