Smoke Long, Live Long

A pack a day keeps the doctor away.

I was thinking about the inhalants they use to treat asthma and some cases of pneumonia the other day and started wondering how hard it would be to fold the treatment of lung cancer (and perhaps its prevention) into the process of making cigarettes. If the drug companies got together with cigarette companies to design an inhalable version of docetaxel, Iressa, etc. that could be added to cigarettes during the manufacturing process then people who wanted to keep smoking (or who wanted to quit but couldn't) could treat themselves each time they lit up. The drug companies would make money from whatever drug was used, the cigarette companies would make money from these higher-priced cigarettes (not to mention the goodwill they could add to their books in the form of positive publicity), and smokers could take a minor step toward offsetting the harm that the smoking was doing.

If the drugs used in chemotherapy can't be converted in useful inhalable forms, maybe drugs used to treat other diseases that complicate cancer could be added to the cigarettes. Inhalable insulin might be a good thing.
