Well, there are campaigns, a lot of them about obesity, fast food, etc.
I don't see any campaigns about all those wonderful EU numbers in our food. (Funded by our governments, that is.)
But it is never the same as direct inhalation of condensed substances in cigarette I guess
Are you absolutely sure that fuel exhaust for example, doesn't contain any of those condensed substances?
why are smokers in a cancer-risk group?
Let's take America for example (With the full smoking-ban and all.) 596.490 Americans are expected to die of cancer this year, and about 178.947 Americans are expected to die of cancer attributable to smoking. (30%) So why smokers are in a cancer-risk group beats me, since 70% of all cancer cases are non-smokers.
If breathing was just as unhealthy
I'm not saying that breathing is just as unhealthy, but let's talk about Benzene, which is what actually causes a variety of cancers. Now, one cigarette contains about 0,05 milligrams of Benzene. (Let's forget about Lead and Carbon Dioxide, because we're all breathing copious amounts of that.)
A non-smoker who lives in a rural area will inhale about 0,18 milligrams of Benzene every day, which equals 3,6 cigarettes. A non-smoker who lives in Amsterdam will inhale about four times as much, which equals 14,4 cigarettes a day. A non-smoker who lives in Manchester will probably inhale eight times as much, which equals 28,8 cigarettes a day.
Non-smokers in New York? **** it, you people might aswell start smoking! Me? I live in a rural area, and inhale about 3,6 cigarettes a day when I'm not smoking, while heavy smokers inhale about 1,8 milligrams of Benzene every day, which equals 32 cigarettes a day. So do the math if you smoke less, or even much less.
So you say we should resign from cars, transportation and industry? That's not serious.
No. I'm just wondering why all the sudden fuss about smoking? People die, because some things aren't healthy. I'd say that's natural. People who support the smoking-ban should know about the air they're all breathing, instead of using my bad habit as an excuse to combat health issues. If I stop smoking, dickweeds, I might still die of cancer due to other bad stuff in our air, water, food and whatnot.
But not smoking in public is in my opinion. It has only advantages.
Like? More stressed people?
And call me dirty but I don't wash my jeans after wearing them one time.
Hey, for me it depends on what I've been doing, or how hard I've been working.
But after going to a bar after work for a beer or coffee - I have to.
Why? I'm sitting here in the same shirt I wore yesterday. It smells nice. (I think I've smoked about eleven cigarettes yesterday.) Even my sweat smells like roses, but of course no one will believe that!
I've no idea what it has to do with environmentally-friendly attitude, but I fully agree on that! No bad thing can come out of this! :))
Well, you don't have to wash what you're not wearing. Don't ask. It's how my mind works.
I do choose to go to smokey bars because they are good places to go, but since people who smoke do not go out for a smoke (or there's no smoking room etc.) - there is a problem. And I don't know enough good non-smoking places.
So you're all for a smoking-ban, but you choose to go to the bars where smoking is allowed because the non-smoking places aren't working for you? Where will you go for a drink when smoking is banned everywhere then?
