It has never been demonstrated that smoking cigarettes causes lung cancer.

Most likely he got it from eating pussy, as new research has shown, but sure, your uncle who works at Nintendo definitely has a point! My cousin's college roommate was actually at Sandy Hook, that also happened.

look, all it takes is a denial of physics and math you can work out at home if you have enough time and a belief in a conspiracy that all scientists, governments, and entrepreneurs, (and the people in charge of making the fake evidence,) are in an unprecedented global cooperation spanning hundreds of years with not a single defector. For... reasons?

this is pathetic, even for a shill.

Oh okay. I mean, the radioactive polonium and lead that goes into your lungs and never comes back out is perfectly healthy. Other ingredients notwithstanding. I think you're thinking of nicotine itself, which indeed - based on studies of other forms of tobacco and nicotine use - have inconclusive evidence for cancer.

Smoking cigarettes causes cancer [full stop]

Edit: As a side note, the polonium and lead are just in fertilizer (and thus in fertilized crops,) but the reason it's so awful for cigarette users is because it doesn't easily leave the lungs. It's too heavy to be absorbed and it's not airborne so you don't just "breath it out." basically the only time any of it has a chance at leaving the lungs is when the smoker is hacking out globs of slime.

It's not a problem with food because it doesn't build up; It passes through the body.
