I tried to do a drop of research yesterday.
I didn’t get very far.
What I was looking for was a list of “smoking related diseases”. Seeing as all smokers are constantly dying from these diseases, you would think there would be a list of them somewhere.
Or at least not one that I could find.
I did discover of course that smoking causes just about everything from Influenza to Ingrown Toenails and from Rickets to Bipolar Disorder but nowhere could I find a comprehensive list.
I did find one new “smoking related” effect. I can’t call it a disease exactly but it is apparently smoking related.
Smokers have a 53% higher chance of divorce.
“Adults who smoked cigarettes at the time of the survey were 53% more likely to have experienced divorce than were those who did not smoke.”
You can’t argue with that as it is a “scientific fact”.
It proves two things.
It proves that epidemiological studies are a pile of horse shit and it proves that smoking is the greatest cause of statistics.
Next they’ll be saying that smoking causes coastal erosion and Global Warming.
