Smoking and the Nazi War on Cancer

Wow. If this is accurate, German scientists under the Nazi regime definitively linked smoking to cancer and initiated a large-scale anti-smoking campaign.

I now begin to understand how companies I worked for in Germany still had optional smoking offices. That Nazi spectre looms large, and only now are the last people with strong memories of living under the Nazis dying off.
