America was a different place in the ’50s and ’60s. Posting the ’50s “Alka Selzer” ad this morning took me back to this ad for “Camels” on which my generation grew up.
Some things have changed for the better. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) stopped this kind of real men ad, but only after real science researched the truth about cigarette smoke and cancer, resulting in successful lawsuits against the tobacco industry’s faux science. Is there a lesson here for today? Is faux science again trumping real science?
- Gordon C. Stewart, former real man(1966-1985) now looking to real doctors for treatment and the EPA and FDA for real environmental protection in America, March 4, 2017.
Still miss them(not Camels but my brand), but going backwards is death. All changes In EPA and FDA must go forward for the sake of our world and all peoples in it and not backwards.
