A divided appeals court supports a new trial for a former American Airlines flight attendant who lost her claim against the cheap cigarette and tobacco industry that secondhand cigarette smoke caused her sinus disease.

The cigarette box will be retried

A three-judge panel of the Third District Court of Appeals ruled 2-1 in favor of a new trial Wednesday for Suzette Janoff, ordered by Circuit Judge Leslie Rothenberg after the trial.

Most agreed with Rothenberg that expert testimony for cigarette manufacturers was unfairly “reinforced” by a defense attorney after questions from the woman’s attorney drove a hole in their conclusions.

After testifying that allergies caused the woman’s condition, the expert admitted that a medical group’s website said secondhand cigarette smoke could aggravate sinus conditions.

Cheap cigarettes can help treat sepsis

Cigarette smokers can now cheer up. Here is some encouraging news to warm the hearts of cigarette fans!

The active ingredient in tobacco may actually have a beneficial effect on the body in treating a common and life-threatening type of infection process known as sepsis, new research shows.

Sepsis is the third leading cause of death in developed countries, accounting for nearly nine percent of deaths in the US each year. The condition begins as an infection that activates the entire immune system to an exaggerated degree.

The immune system then triggers a chain of events that can lead to uncontrolled inflammation in the body, shock, and eventually death.

Until recently, the only way doctors could treat sepsis was with powerful antibiotics and other supportive care. In 2001, the drug Xigris became the first available therapy for sepsis and has been shown to reduce the risk of death from the condition.

But now there is encouraging news that tobacco, the raw ingredient in cheap cigarettes, is good for sepsis treatment options.
