Decisions made by the food, tobacco, alcohol, pharmaceutical, gun, and automobile industries have a greater impact on today's health than the decisions of scientists and policymakers. As the collective influence of corporations has grown, governments around the world have stepped back from their responsibility to protect public health by privatizing key services, weakening regulations, and cutting funding for consumer and environmental protection. Today's corporations are increasingly free to make decisions that benefit their bottom line at the expense of public health. Lethal but Legal examines how corporations have impacted -- and plagued -- public health over the last century, first in industrialized countries and now in developing regions. It is both a current history of corporations' antagonism towards health and an analysis of the emerging movements that are challenging these industries' dangerous practices. The reforms outlined here aim to strike a healthier balance between large companies' right to make a profit and governments' responsibility to protect their populations. While other books have addressed parts of this story, Lethal but Legal is the first to connect the dots between unhealthy products, business-dominated politics, and the growing burdens of disease and health care costs. By identifying the common causes of all these problems, then situating them in the context of other health challenges that societies have overcome in the past, this book provides readers with the insights they need to take practical and effective action to restore consumers' right to health.

Migration between Mexico and the United States is part of a historical process of increasing North American integration. This process acquired new momentum with the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement in 1994, which lowered barriers to the movement of goods, capital, services, and information. But rather than include labor in this new regime, the United States continues to resist the integration of the labor markets of the two countries. Instead of easing restrictions on Mexican labor, the United States has militarized its border and adopted restrictive new policies of immigrant disenfranchisement. Beyond Smoke and Mirrors examines the devastating impact of these immigration policies on the social and economic fabric of the Mexico and the United States, and calls for a sweeping reform of the current system. Beyond Smoke and Mirrors shows how U.S. immigration policies enacted between 1986–1996—largely for symbolic domestic political purposes—harm the interests of Mexico, the United States, and the people who migrate between them. The costs have been high. The book documents how the massive expansion of border enforcement has wasted billions of dollars and hundreds of lives, yet has not deterred increasing numbers of undocumented immigrants from heading north. The authors also show how the new policies unleashed a host of unintended consequences: a shift away from seasonal, circular migration toward permanent settlement; the creation of a black market for Mexican labor; the transformation of Mexican immigration from a regional phenomenon into a broad social movement touching every region of the country; and even the lowering of wages for legal U.S. residents. What had been a relatively open and benign labor process before 1986 was transformed into an exploitative underground system of labor coercion, one that lowered wages and working conditions of undocumented migrants, legal immigrants, and American citizens alike. Beyond Smoke and Mirrors offers specific proposals for repairing the damage. Rather than denying the reality of labor migration, the authors recommend regularizing it and working to manage it so as to promote economic development in Mexico, minimize costs and disruptions for the United States, and maximize benefits for all concerned. This book provides an essential "user's manual" for readers seeking a historical, theoretical, and substantive understanding of how U.S. policy on Mexican immigration evolved to its current dysfunctional state, as well as how it might be fixed.

SUMMARY Every nation should determine the future and the goals of public health inn protecting its population. As Western nations such as tobacco companies of the United States, Britain and others, are improving their gross national products, they are instead exporting a major public health burden to the Emerging nations....mostly various kinds of cancer, especially “lung cancer” which has had a high toll of mortality to the populations of different nations of the world. The World Health Organization after decades and billions of dollars later lost the fight against Malaria. The world has surrendered to the disease. Nothing left in the world except old wives tales type of pseudo-preventative measures that does nothing except put the population in a form of false security. The fight not only lost, but the enemy has actually become stronger, and we have nothing to further combat it. it is a raging fire that onsumes without mercy. For many years, the drug of choice was Chloroquine or quinine. During the Korean war in the 1950’s, many troops of an African or Mediterranean ethnic origin have exhibited severe allergic reaction to quinine. There it was discontinued and only Chloroquine was used. After many decades of Chloroquine use and misuse of Chloroquine resistant strain of Malaria made its appearance on the scientific scene in Southeast Asia and later the African continent. To date there is no medication available for the resistant Malaria. The best we have is a prophylactic dose of Chloroquine prior to traveling to an endemic area. This is still an effective measure only in the Americas where the Malaria is still sensitive to chloroquine. The resistant stain has a very wide range. It has been observed as far east as Afghanistan and Kazakhstan, and as west as West Africa. The death rate is very high becauses of several common denominators. Most of these countries are over-populated, poor health care programs, no preventative programs, mostly illiterate population and most importantly, very poor economic status. These countries mostly rely on outside help from the industrialized nations or the United Nation health care arm (WHO). Consistent factors of all outside aid program, they are very costly, usually without previous careful long-rang impact studies, in most cases are very short lived. The result in most cases is disastrous; the needy country usually is left with a white elephant health care program that is a failure and cannot afford to maintain on their own either from a technical standpoint or form a financial shortage. For a long time we believed that more is bigger and better and the rest is history. Malnutrition further complicates the picture complicates the picture. In economically poor counties their people are not able to take the proper nutrients to sustain good status of health. The malnourishment affects the immune system which, as a result, renders the population of the endemic areas with higher propensity to contract Malaria and other diseases as well. These conditions combined results in the outcome of increased incidence of the disease and shorter life expectancy of the patients. Furthermore, the disease’s vector (Mosquito) has become more resistant to eradication efforts, and as a result, its range has become increasingly greater every year. For many years the spray methods of wetlands, stagnant pools, and slow flowing steams have proven useless. Yet these methods continue. Why? The answer is very simple; it is cheap, available, easily applied, and most importantly politically conveinient. But the reality is that these methods are a dismal failure; one only has to look at the numbers (increased incidence of Malaria and the increased range of the vector). Poor sanitary practice due to lack of education and the financial means to build water treatment facilities or even the ability to supply fresh clean water have contributed to the spread of the most preventable of diseases, Cholera disease caused b

Now, with a brand new 3rd edition, the book returns to "ordinary politics" and the passage of the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act which gave the FDA broad authority to regulate both the manufacture and marketing of tobacco products. Derthick shows our political institutions working as they should, even if slowly, with partisanship and interest group activity playing their part in putting restraints on cigarette smoking.
