German doctors in the 1930s linked smoking to lung cancer, but because they were Nazis, it didn't really get around.

more like people are ignorant about something all the time until they learn different. What are the hooks today

Those were the Good Ol days. Nowadays you cant even have cigarette without seeing some "concerned citizen" sneering at you.  Not to mention cafes and restaurants which should serve their paying customers.  It seems so trendy to blame some big bad company for all the smoking.  I am Not saying smoking is good for anybody, it sure isnt. But you can hardly call smokers ignorant for not living like someone else.
The German Government of Adolf Hitler had already realized that Tobacco was cancerous and that Cocaine was highly addictive and dangerous in the 30's. I believe Germany was the first state to have no smoking in public areas and made cocaine an illegal substance/drug. Why did it take another 50 years? 
Astrology isn't a total joke imo... If you read a horoscope in the weekly paper, yeah, it's worthless.. but astrologers can sometimes surprise the hell out of you.
