how do they decide how many people are killed by second hand smoke? how could you prove a person was killed by that? how could you even say it was probable, i mean if you are around very heavy smokers than maybe, but that poos so exaggerated

LOL! Thanks, McGovern1981...

BTW, SmilinSam...it's "a lot", not "alot".

Also, formaldehyde is another naturally occurring byproduct of organic decomposition. That steak you just charred on your grill? It probably has more formaldehyde than a cigarette does.

just for the record, smoking rolling tobacco with a filter is healthier than premade ciggerettes the top end of prerolled ciggerette brand such as malboro or camel contain about 40% tobacco in total after all the work put in preserving and such the rest is chemicals + useless stuff that is used to make it taste nice or last longer, the lower end ciggerettes such as Lambert and butler or benson and hedges contain even less tobacco, rolling tobacco leaves you with about 70% tobacco with a hell of alot less chemicals, but for even safer get an E-ciggerette as it contains only nicotine and works out a hell of alot cheaper in the long run, aswell as beating all smoking bans and not putting anyone in danger, it is what im going to end up smoking as i currently smoke rolling tobacco, search E-ciggerette on the internet i suggest smokers invest in one

Only 5% of people succeed when they try to quit? jeez.
They should read that Alan Carr book called "the easy way to quit" I bought it for my dad and it worked..

Well if it was smoking-related it would have to be the chemicals, a baby in the womb shares it's mothers blood, the smoke itself would have no effect on the child's lungs because the two never come in contact, but the chemicals in the cigarette could do damage. Chances are though if smoking did enough damage to actually affect her lungs she would have more serious health issues as well. She was probably born with normal lungs and an adverse reaction to cigarettes after being exposed during development, if her mother smoked while she was pregnant she probably also smoked afterwards, so bad reaction + being exposed to smoke while growing up could be the reason.

Could be coincidence that she has weak lungs. I'm no scientist (i am a civil engineer tho), so i couldn't put my finger on chemicals or smoke. I just know her mother was a heavy smoker when she was pregnant. The chemicals might've inhibited growth and 100% function of her lungs, maybe the lungs react to the smoke the same way they did in the womb? It's all assumptions from my side.

And yeah, potheads are fking self centred here, all the posts are "Make weed legal". How about find a good hiding spot and shut up? Several of the potheads i know complain about it being illegal. yet they still do it. I don't care if you do it, either keep your mouth on your apple juice container bong or keep it shut.

And if we do make it legal, you won't have anything to talk about, or you'll start complaining about something else.

So no, no legalised pot for joo bebbes.

*side note: why is it that pot heads always seem to change the topic to themselves?

Natrually, I know that smoking is bad, m'kay. But when the health teacher starts rambling about how bad it is for us, m'kay, all I can think is that he's lying.
Though, now that I've seen this post on I-Am-Bored, I'm convinced.
Is that lame?

Why did they put a marijuana leaf in the infographic when they talk about deaths related to illegal drugs? There wasn't even one pot overdose case in medical history.

Yes Jazzy, your post inspired me to create an account instead of just lurking.

Are you insinuating that the smoke her mother inhaled affected her lungs or that the chemicals in the smoke did? That statement seems dangerously close to horrible self-diagnosis.

Yay! I'm one of the "5 out of 100" who quit smoking and succeeded!

Smoking is so bad for you... When I quit, it helped to look at all the positive reasons to quit, how my body would get better after quitting.. I went and looked at the effects of quitting smoking regularly. It helped a lot. XD

Harleg, yeah it was the first thing that came to mind, not enough characters to start talking about 3rd hand smoke. My girlfriends mum smoked when she was in womb, now her lungs are taking the toll for it, couldnt get into the police force because of it. Traces of ash within her housemates furniture/carpet make her cough up when brushed up against, let alone their car lol.

BTW only 2 posts? Did my post encourage you to create an account? ;)

Only sissy boys who play with virtual guns think it makes you look like a douche.

Kids, don't listen to them. Smoking makes you look cool. Fact. Look at Marlon Brando, James Dean, Humphrey Bogart, Frank Sinatra. Would they have been cool without their cigarettes?

"wtf!
cyanide?
who the hell would put that into their body?!?!?!?!"

Umm...nature? Cyanide naturally occurs in most organic products...particularly when you incinerate said organic products. You know apples contain cyanide, right?
