Citation: Hastings G (2012) Why corporate power is a public health priority, BMJ, 345 (e5124).
Abstract: First paragraph: The work of Professor Richard Doll provides two key lessons for public health. The first, that we must do all we can to eradicate the use of tobacco, has been well learnt and is being energetically acted upon. The second, more subtle learning-that our economic system has deep flaws-remains largely ignored. And yet, lethal though tobacco is, the harm being done to public health by our economic system is far greater.
