King Charles announces TOTAL BAN on cigarette smoking in UK – is it because the nicotine in tobacco helps protect against COVID?
11/12/2023 // Ethan Huff // Views

At the state opening of the British Parliament this week, King Charles shocked the nation with a plan to completely ban smoking all throughout the United Kingdom.

In his King's Speech, which ceremonially marks the beginning of the new legislative year, King Charles revealed that Prime Minister Rishi Sunak will be imposing a historic crackdown on cigarettes and the smoking of tobacco.

The first phase involves passing legislation to raise the legal age for buying cigarettes. In every year that follows, the legal age will be raised again and again until eventually there are no more smokers left in Great Britain.

"We must tackle the single biggest entirely preventable cause of ill health, disability, and death," Sunak previously stated in anti-tobacco messaging to the nation.

"And that is smoke, and our country. Smoking causes one in four cancer deaths," he further proclaimed.

If the plan moves forward as intended, a 14-year-old living in the UK today will never legally be sold a cigarette.

Is nicotine all bad?

Nicotine can actually be beneficial in protecting against cytokine storms. The first of the smoking ban legislation will be subject to a "free vote," meaning Members of Parliament (MPs) will not be told how they should vote by party enforcers.

The Labour Party has confirmed, however, that it intends to vote alongside the Conservative government to pass the bill, which means it is "expected to fly through," to quote The Sun.

"People take up cigarettes when they are young," Sunak claims. "Four in five smokers have started by the time they are 20. Later, the vast majority try to quit."

"But many fail because they are addicted and they wish they had never taken up the habit in the first place. If we could break that cycle, if we could stop the start, then we would be on our way to ending the biggest cause of preventable death and disease in our country."

Along with many other things on the world stage right now that are slated to reach their endgame on this particular timeline, England intends to become completely smoke-free by the year 2030, meaning fewer than five percent of the public using cigarettes.

There has been much speculation over the years as to why governments of the world really want people to stop smoking. It cannot be about public health, otherwise they would ban other things like genetically modified organisms (GMOs), vaccines, fluoridated water, 5G, and many, many other things that are much more dangerous than the tobacco plant.

It may come as a shock to some, but there are actually some medicinal benefits to tobacco and its nicotine constituents. For one, nicotine inhibits cytokine storms, also known as hypercytokinemia, an overreactive innate immune response that releases too many pro-inflammatory signaling molecules, sometimes resulting in death.

The issue of tobacco and cytokine storms came up more than once during the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) "pandemic" when it was discovered that nicotine actually provides protective benefits for the lungs when faced with severe respiratory infections.

"Statistical surveys of COVID-19 patients indicate, against all common logic, that people who smoke are less prone to the infection and / or exhibit less severe respiratory symptoms than non-smokers," reads the abstract of one study about all this that was published in the journal Immunology Letters (Elsevier).

"This suggests that nicotine may have some preventive or modulatory effect on the inflammatory response in the lungs. Because it is known that the response to, and resolution of the SARS-CoV-2 infection depends mainly on the lung macrophages, we discuss the recent scientific findings, which may explain why and how nicotine may modulate lung macrophage response during COVID-19 infection."

When Big Brother – or in this case, Big Royalty – tells you something has to be banned in order to protect public health, you are probably being lied to. Learn more at
