People, you must include some hardcore facts about smoking. The fact that we have only had the laboratory data for the past 30 years on smoking and
its adverse health effects, before then it was chique to smoke before becoming taboo today. The facts are smoke contains thousands of compounds that
are industry known for cancer. Whether you have smoked for 1 year, all of your jr/adult life to present day or have never smoked at all, you have
several genetic, biochemical, lifestyle and exposure factors that come into play for cancer risks.
Big tobacco has held back these facts from years of study away from the general public at large due to their bottom line$. It is up to the individual
to decide what is best for him/her. I smoked for 11 years before giving it up cold turkey, and I can tell you as a experienced smoker after about 2
years after quiting when your lungs heal from all of the heat shock and particle embedding you feel like you have just received a second lease on
life. It is not for everyone to either start smoking or to stop smoking. That is a individual's choice made by that individual for that individual
i.e. falls into the personal realm.
Radiation from tobacco is bad due to the fact that it is inhaled and thus brought to the critical point of O2 exchange in your body where the radicals
from the cig smoke does accumulate and over time concentrates to bombard healthy tissue with ions which over time may cause abnormal cellular growth
i.e. benign or malignant.
Choice is personal! Respect choice!
