It seems to me, that there is a huge industry of helping people quit smoking. You wonder if they aren’t spending money to convince you that smoking is bad. I’d like to see some independent research.
Health – Proving causation, is much, much more difficult than correlation. Your “facts” say that the act of smoking CAUSES heart disease. I would like to know what you base your opinion on. Please explain the methodology of the study done, or help me find out. I am genuinely curious. Smoking tends to affect one’s health badly, and can cause health problems, some of which can lead to death. Just not as many deaths as the government would like you to believe.
PBA – Actually the original research was independent.
frumnotyeshivish – For this I don’t need any study -I’ve seen this with my own eyes!
Health – What have you seen with your own eyes? A smoker that got a heart attack? What does that prove? Did you even understand anything I said?
