Smoking is Worshiping Pagan God
Burning tobacco originated with ancient aboriginals. The modern world learned of the use of tobacco from the Indians. History reveals Columbus found the Indians smoking and watched with surprise and wonderment. The Grand Pipe or Pipe of Peace was first observed among the Indians of Upper Mississippi country by the French. They called these pipes "calumets". According to the Indians the pipe possessed a supernatural power and a "charming" effect to compel the partakers of the smoke to a brotherly bond of peace (obviously not the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ).
Historically the Calumet was considered a sacred pipe to offer smoke to the demon gods above and below. Tobacco was looked upon as a sacred plant and burning it brought favor in the eyes of the gods (demons), even a member of an enemy tribe who entered a house and smoked with the host, was guaranteed protection and safe conduct when he left.
Vince DeMarco of the non-profit organization, Health Care for All in Maryland will join Anna to discuss the health benefits of raising the tobacco tax by $1 per pack of cigarettes ... a bill currently before the Maryland General Assembly (legislative session).
WHY we should raise the tax!
Where that money will go!
And the benefits we have seen from previous tax increases!

Dr. Angela Canfield Holds Second Inspiring Smiles Series Talk in Honor of Oral Cancer Awareness Month
(SAVANNAH, GA) Dr. Angela Canfield of Sandfly Family Dental in Savannah, GA announces the second talk in the 2015 Inspiring Smiles Series will be held Tuesday, April 14, from noon to 1 p.m. The discussion is titled “Oral DNA and Periodontal Testing.”
Periodontal diseases, such as gingivitis, are caused from bacteria that inflames the gums. Symptoms include bad breath, red or swollen gums, and receding gums. Dr. Canfield will explain the benefits of early detection and the process to determine patients’ risks of these diseases.
According Dentistry Today, every sixty minutes, a person dies from oral cancer. The disease is typically associated with long-term tobacco use, but it is becoming more frequent in young adults who have never smoked. Besides tobacco use, the risk factors that could lead to oral cancer include DNA abnormalities or family history. But the main cause, especially in young adults who don’t smoke, is the human papillomavirus (HPV), which may be spread by sexually active people through intimate contact.
“HPV is the leading cause of cervical cancer, which was once the leading cause of cancer deaths for women in the United States,” said Dr. Canfield, “Now that women routinely get PAP tests, which provide early detection of conditions that could lead to cervical cancer, those cancer rates are on the decline. In fact, these days, a person is three times more likely to die from oral cancer than cervical cancer.”
The Inspiring Smiles Series will take place at Dr. Canfield’s office located at 7360 Skidaway Rd., Suite H2. It is free to attend. To RSVP, call Dr. Canfield at 912-349-0472. Dr. Canfield will also be giving away free oral cancer screenings during the month of April.
Matthew Celentano will join Anna's Journey to discuss the reasons why the Maryland General Assembly should pass a bill raising the taxes on cigarettes. Discussion will include the expected health benefits tobacco tax increases have accomplished in the past and are expected to achieve in the future.
