FCTC centre stage in the Netherlands

FCTC cannot be ignored any longer in the Netherlands.

In your dreams.

The FCTC treaty is based on junk science, recommends measures that have not been proven to work and is the work of fanatics. It only supplies guidelines that cannot be enforced on member states of the treaty.
The author of this article is a Professor on CAPHRI (Maastricht University), paid by the Dutch ASH-like NGO Stivoro (which, surprisingly, is not one of the declared supporters of this report). His boss, Onno van Schayck is receiving funds from Big Pharma for his work on the development of an anti-smoking vaccine.
So who in fact is crying out? People and organisations that earn their money with this health scare. So who would listen to such interest groups?
