*IMPORTANT post-recording addendum: This episode covers a vital matter that proves itself out with many decades worth of empirically relevant data - thus, the compelling statistics around deaths by tobacco require no embellishment. That said, we want to be as accurate as possible with the statements we made during our conversation. When we discuss stats around the daily deaths attributed to tobacco use and the industry's pursuit of new smokers - it may be unclear when we were referencing the US market versus global markets. Dr. Green clarifies:

"...the catastrophic loss on 9/11 (2,996 deaths on that date) and how there are more tobacco deaths daily. In the US there are currently 1,300 tobacco deaths daily but globally there are about 20,000 tobacco deaths daily..."

"...in addition, the tobacco industry once needed to gain approximately 7,000 new smokers per day, which is likely much higher on a global scale...these statistics were the recognized number years ago and may vary based on 2021 statistics..."
