Hello people! I would like to comment an article that came up just today on the news column of neuronetwork: "smoking's up-side: Nicotine protects the brain from Parkinson's disease".. surely an interesting feature which considers nicotine as a chemical compostion, with psychoactive proprieties but in no means the only chemical product found in tobacco... so i really wonder if all 4,000 substances (i.e., tar, policyclic hydrocarbons, cadmium, dyes, polonium, etc. all have the beneficial propieties on Parkinson's disease protection, or if those who wrote that article should undergo a tobacco cessation programme (I would give that to them  free of charge!) What do you think about the confusion between delta-9-THC given as an appetizer to terminal state AIDS patients and saying that they should smoke weed for their health.. or that red wine is good for the heart (surely not alcohol!). Researchers should learn how to write articles about their findings in a less speculative manner...
