    Will a Nicotine Patch Make You Smarter? (Scientific American)

    Not sure if this has been listed before - Will a Nicotine Patch Make You Smarter? [Excerpt] - Scientific American - Basically pimping a book, but a particular line from the excerpt made me grin.

    “The whole problem with nicotine is that it happens to be found in cigarettes,” she told me. “People can’t disassociate the two in their mind, nicotine and smoking. It’s not the general public that annoys me, it’s the scientists. When I tell them about the studies, they should say, ‘Wow.’ But they say, ‘Oh well, that might be true, but I don’t see the point.’ It’s not even ignorance. It’s their preconceived ideas and inflexibility.”

    If this has been posted before, it sure bears posting again. Good article, seems even scientists can't separate nicotine from smoking tobacco, or choose not to for ideological reasons, which makes it difficult for anyone studying the benefits of nicotine. This, to me, is a very sad state of affairs.
