Less is better—sometimes

Global cigarette sales are going down. In most rich countries the proportion of adults who smoke is falling. So why aren’t antitobacco activists celebrating? Our feature this week by Jonathan Gornall (doi:10.1136/bmj.h2052) is the first in a series of articles that describe the efforts of the tobacco industry to regain credibility and influence public policy. Many experts say that the hard won successes of the war against tobacco are in danger of being undone. Population growth will be concentrated in countries with poor tobacco control, and population expansion will exceed any decrease in prevalence. Furthermore, tobacco company profits continue to rise, in part because of expansion into a variety of alternative tobacco and nicotine products, particularly electronic cigarettes (doi:10.1136/bmj.h2133).

Recording casualties of war

The impulse to create a permanent record of a war, including those who died in it, is far from new. The Louvre’s curators believe that the museum contains the remains of the oldest known historical document, and certainly its oldest war memorial, the Stèle des Vatours, so named because of its representations of vultures feasting on the corpses.1 Dating from around 2450 BC the Sumerian memorial “commemorates not the glorious dead of the victors but their victory and the sorry fate of the vanquished, who are shown on the stele lying piled one upon the other.”2
