Hiding the bad data by tobacco firms

  [vote for,

Seems to me that the best way for tobacco companies to prevent a great deal of financial loss in the future is by hiding the data that looks bad.

The most obvious way to me is to start arranging "accidents" for smokers. In this way the number of deaths from smoking related deaths will go down and the tobacco companies will face less likelihood of litigation.

With a such a large number of smokers, it will prove taxing to come up with enough plausible "accidental deaths", but with a....hang on..there seems to be two penguins operating a steam roller outside my win

       Yep, at about 1 billion smokers (apparently) you would need to have a pretty extensive war to even thin out the numbers.

       Those guys have so much money rolling in, there are large reserves set aside to deal with any problems. Bumping off some of your addicted customer base would be counter productive.
