"America, Australia, Russia, and some South Pacific island groups have ... the highest incidence of lung cancer."
Just out of curiosity, where was most open air nuclear testing done?

So smoke yourself to death, Joe, and see if we care. Just don't blow it in my face.

How much are the tobacco companies paying you for this bullshit?

I'm a smoker, but at least I don't delude myself into thinking my habit is somehow good for me.

On the other hand we know that smokers are short of breath, cough like diseased rhinos, smell like ash trays, pollute the air with their foul burning leaf and cause one to gasp with their noisome exhalations.
These foul breathed addicts habitually enjoy their malodorous fix and couldn't care less that everyone else has to tolerate the noxious aura of their reeking clothes.

Calling something "organic" doesn't mean it's healthy.
Sure, puff away all you want. Just don't be surprised when you start developing health problems.

When a product meant for human consumption includes arsenic as one of its active ingredients, it automatically gives up any claim to being healthy.

What a nice fantasy.

While lung cancer incidence overall may be lower in Japan than in the US, lung cancer IS the most common cancer in Japan. Some factors cited to explain this "paradox" include the possibility that the Japanese cigarettes have fewer carcinogens, and that the Japanese eat a healthier diet with less fat.

Let's look at some statistics.
Percentage of smokers globally:
Lung cancer death per capita:
Amazing how East Asia (including Japan) has the largest percentage of smokers and a lung cancer mortality rate near the top of the chart.

The same old tired debunked arguments...
Just admit that you're addicted and that you have a hard time quitting. No need to go into convolutions in a pathetic attempt to justify your habit.

@pule thamex: i take offense to that. i go out of my way for non-smokers to avoid tobacco smoke, and i make sure i don't smell too much of tobacco smoke (clean living, personal hygiene). it's just respect to others, no need for name calling, although i do know some really callous smokers.
this post is truly idiotic though:
" harmless organic tobacco"
"humble organic tobacco has never hurt anyone"
just this discredits everything.
i'm with the anonymous and noXion on this one though, those were my first reactions as well.

Thanks for your reply. Too bad if you took offense. I guess you didn't realize that I was mocking the complete tosser in the original post. But good for you if you are an invisible smoker as far as non-smokers are concerned. Smoke on buddy, it's your cardio-vascular system to do with as you wish. Happy heart attack.
