I can hardly imagine that a site discussing tobacco does not include a history
of health and medical-related science issues. The name of the site does not
reflect the narrow geographic coverage (i.e. NC), nor what appears to be a very
biased perspective that has little, if anything, to do with good biology
education. Perhaps this site could be included under some other category such
as social science, economics, history, etc.? I would suggest leaving it to
knowledgeable people in those disciplines to evaluate that possiblility. I read
some or all of the text in each section of this site.

Technical Remarks:

It is my observation that little, if any, content from this site would have
applications in biology education.
