    How tobacco is even still legal with as much evidence against it is just unbelievable. I think in 100 years people will look back at this time and ask what were they thinking.

    By now, it’s almost certain you have heard and seen all of the tv ads put
    out by attorneys who are experts in transvaginal mesh lawsuits.
    But I would bet that you never knew how dangerous some vaginal mesh devices
    can turn out!

    If you destoy your health and the health of others around you than you should pay. The tax on tabacco should discourage people to smoke.
