    Yeah, well, that was when smoking was `acceptable`. Today most people, including me, regard it as a disgusting habit.

    The doctor`s report stated that it was his `opinion` that everything was hunky-dory. It`s BS.

    I have a feeling that back then, if you got X-rayed and nothing bad showed up, it would be indisputable evidence that nothing bad was happening.

    Err, we still have commercials like this. Granted not for cigarettes anymore but we`ve still got doctors (read ophthalmologists, podiatrists, etc.) telling us how awesome weight loss drugs are.

    Mani-Jac my dad smoked heavily he either is a very light smoker or he quit cold turkey finally. he had ear hairs because of the smoking- the smoke causes ear hairs to grow.

    smoking is so bad its worse than people realize- i remember when the street experiment was conducted and the black "skid marks" didn`t come back up.

    everything was Bull back then- and nobody knew anything. case closed

    well it didnt actually say that they were good for u just that after six months no issues were found that might have to be considerd unhealthy... now i am a strong smoker i have an average of 25 per day... and i am sick and tired of people picking on me... they are my lungs... and nearly 85% of the costs of cigaretts are taxes... so next time you phone an ambulance or need a policmen.. or even just walking down the street, think about thanking us smokers our addiction pays (partly) for this!!!

    tourettes: "he had ear hairs because of the smoking- the smoke causes ear hairs to grow."

    I seriously doubt that there is a correlation between smoking and "ear-hair-growth".

    Anyhwo, i think the X-rays they made back then are more harmul than smoking a few cigarettes.

    lol, also, they didnt say that they were in good health, they said theat no adverse effects happened "during the 6 months" meaning they could be in poor shape, just not worse shape.. also the medical examinations back then were not so thorough on all the little effects..

    I actually find cigarettes to be more... potent(?) than weed. No, it doesn`t get you high, but it does feel good. :]
    Plus, he didn`t say they were good. He said that they had no effect.
    Anyway, I don`t care if they`re bad. I don`t smoke nearly enough to do any damage.
    And lastly, kids, don`t smoke. It`s really not worth the money.

    Well, this commercial was made a long time ago, and a long time ago people really did think that smoking was good for you. Maybe it`s because the nicotine pretty much prevents you from getting sick or something.

    ears can be affected because they are connected to the throat. sounds weird but it`s true. Why do you think if you hold your nose and mouth closed, and then try forcing air out, you feel it in your ears?

    ears, eyes, nose, mouth...they`re all connected.

    HEY, smoking isn`t as bad as you think; the reason why almost everyone thinks smoking is "DISGUSTING, WRONG, IMMORAL", etc. is because the media has tricked young people into believing it`s worse than it actually is. Anyway, I`m not saying smoking is healthy, but it`s not as bad as everyone claims it is.
    Also, the tobacco companys aren`t even allowed to advertise their product, while the media is filled with anti-smoking propoganda, so you only see one side of the story. Anyway, THE TOBACCO COMPANYS AREN`T FORCING ANYONE TO SMOKE, SO IF YOU DONT LIKE SMOKING, REMEMBER, NO ONE LIKES A WHINY LITTLE `LISA SIMPSON` WHO RUNS AROUND TELLING OTHER PEOPLE HOW TO LIVE THEIR LIVES. JUST DON`T SAY ANYTHING. YOU DONT HAVE TO SMOKE IF YOU DONT WANT TO. Us smokers are sick of dealing with people like you who pretend to cough, or give us a load of bullpoo. We`re trying to get on with our lives, and instead of trying to control the world, deal with your own problems instead.

    And before you call people from that time period "MORONS", just look at our own time period; ENERGY DRINKS can kill you very quickly if you drink more than 2-5 a day, where as smoking a whole pack of cigarettes a day your whole life might slightly increase your chances of getting lung cancer when you`re old, and even so; my grandma smokes over a pack a day, and has been since she was 15 and she`s healthier than all the rest of us put together.

    But when you smoke, it`s always a good idea to eat an orange a day.

    well when people smoke i dont pretend to cough. who the drat does that? trhe only time i cough is if im in a car with all the windows shut and my gradnmother is smoking or worse my grandmother and aunt. so now i have to breathe in their dratin smoke and i start coughing and then the smoke from their cigs is actually coming out of MY mouth
    i swear im gonna get lung cancer and im the one who hasnt smoked lol

    and the only reason i dont smoke and find it disgusting is because i personally don`t like the smell and i kind of like living so i dont want to do anything that could shorten my life.

    plus my great grandmother died of emphysema v(sp?) so yea....
