Because smoking doesn't actually kill you? I mean, sure, you can suffocate if you're caught in a full-flowing smoke cloud in a fire, but smoking tobacco doesn't kill you.

There is some evidence that it makes you more vulnerable to certain respiratory diseases, but that's all. It increases your vulnerability to something that would've killed you on its own if you contracted it.

All this stuff about second-hand and third-hand smoke That's living in an environment where anybody has smoked before, btw is basically saying "If you rolled this dice representing your life 100 times, 1 time out of 100 you'd die from some vulnerability that smoking increased."

Smoking doesn't automatically mean lung cancer, it just makes your chances of getting it severely increased due to all the carcinogens.

>>118796799

>smoking is completely healthy.

Definitely not. It's just not nearly as unhealthy as all the ridiculous statistics the toss around would make you think. Taking good care of yourself otherwise (diet and excersize mostly) can really make up for the damage to your health (respiratory/cardiovascular) from smoking. But you'd still be much healthier if you ate right and stayed active and didn't smoke at all.

No, getting hit by the car directly causes those internal injuries, hence getting hit by a truck kills you.

But smoking does not directly cause lung cancer. Certain chemicals excacerbate your vulnerability to the conditions that cause lung cancer. But the vast majority of smokers don't get lung cancer.

It's not a "causal" relationship where there's a 1:1 link between smoking and getting lung cancer.

It's a probability increase where smokers have a higher chance of getting lung cancer and that this cannot be accounted for by mere random sampling or any other risk factor that has been controlled for.

They actually have genuine healthcare.

Also, many of the oldest people they have on the books have actually already died. Some were because records were never updated after WW2, while others were kept alive on paper because the relatives want to spend the pension money.

They have a way healthier diet and hence an incredibly low obesity incidence rate of I think 2-3%. So their incidence rate of diabetes and cardiovascular disease is also lesser, and smoking easily pushes preexisting CVD (from having a terrible diet/being a fatass) into heart attack/stroke territory by narrowing the arteries. If their pipes were already clean as a whistle though then it doesn't affect them as badly. Smoking definitely induces cardiovascular problems on its own, however, since for the nips these usually aren't combined with other pre-existing contributing factors the net result isn't as bad.

Also, all the tea and seaweed they take in contributes a lot of antioxidant (which in a somewhat roundabout way is saying anticancer) benefits that might help explain their lower lung cancer rates.

Lastly smoking usually causes lung cancer to happen decades later, not right away. Same goes for alcohol abuse and liver cancer, which commonly arises out of liver cirrhosis first induced decades ago. Even if you hadn't drunk at all since then, the liver could still become cancerous as it attempts to heal (which takes years), and the lungs are the same way with smoking damage. So maybe 20 years from now suddenly nips will experience a spike in lung cancer.
>>

>They have a way healthier diet

>>118798439
That has to do way more with their cultural approach/attitudes toward dentistry than their diet. In the US many kids/teens who will clearly have fucked up teeth will get braces or some corrective procedures done, in Japan basically no.

If you're doing that, you're already addicted.

Smoking is objectively horrible, and if there were no drugs in there, there's no way you'd do it*.

Nicotine is a drug with no effect but withdrawal symptoms. This is why there's no word for "having smoked a lot of cigarettes" like there is for "having smoked a lot of weed" or "having drunk a lot".

Smoking is unhealthy, but eating a teaspoon of salt after each cig negates completely the negative effects while keeping all the beneficial ones, as a plus, you also get a nice amount of electrolytes.

Lots and lots of reasons

1. Calorie restriction. It's been shown you have a 400% reduction in heart disease if your GRANDFATHER was on a calorie reduced diet. This is thanks to genetic switching.

2. Diet. The Japanese diet is very high in fats, and very low in processed sugars. It's considered unmanly to even like sweets and it's considered piggish for girls to eat them. It's true they're popular but if you saw the serving sizes compared to the American ones you'd be shocked. Some people point out they have a diet with high rice, and that's true, but rice is not at all bad for you compared to simple carbs. Brown rice is obviously better though.

3. Location. The air quality is extremely improved compared to a continent.

4. Exercise. Everyone in Japan walks, and they walk constantly. They walk every day to and from school or work. The importance of this cannot be overstated.

5. Genetics. They're small people. Small people tend to live longer just because of a more stable cardiovascular system.

So if you add up all these cardiovascular advantages, a portion of their population killing themselves through smoking isn't enough to keep them from having a longer expectancy than everyone else. Smoking still kills Japanese people though so don't think it doesn't. They just have so many other advantages to make up for it.

Smoking is literally the best thing that has ever happened in the history of the universe. Not only did smoking invent happiness, but it also is the reason why kittens are cute, beds are soft, and why houses keep you safe from rain and giraffe rape. Every cigarette you smoke makes you stronger and your dick bigger. Hitler was a non-smoker and look at how that turned out, he was only able to kill about ten thousand Jews. His non-smoking made him weak and foolish. The guy who invented shoes learned how to make them from a cigarette. Every time you do something cool it's because someone in the world just smoked a cigarette. Simo Hayha killed 700 Russians with seven cigarettes tied together with scotch tape, historians claim it was an SKS but that is incorrect. He also survived an anti-tank round to the face because the cigarette he was smoking deflected it. Fist of the North Star was created when the writer saw the artist smoking a cigarette and said "Hey, awesome cigarette. That gives me an idea, let's invent Fist of the North Star." Demonbane was originally intended to be a cigarette but the author felt there would be no sense of suspense so he downgraded it to a significantly weaker omnipotent god-machine. Cigarretes are made of air, water, bread and joy all put together. The reason we go to heaven when we die is because it is a cigarette. Studies conducted by people better than you prove that there is a direct correlation between not smoking and being a gay nigger. Don't be a gay nigger, smoke. Smoke everything.

Most smokers I know have been family members. Yes, pretty annoying.

It was a small nightmare thinking about and trying to avoid the risks involved in that, but I still appreciate what he did for us. But that's an anecdote.

I never watched him smoke for any length of time, and actually left the room or held my breath when he did, so I'm sure it's the media I consume that makes it attractive somehow.

Actually several smokers I know were able to quit using e-cigs. One of them in fact is my grandmother who smoked for over 40 years, she tried pretty much everything else like the patches and pills and such, but the electronic cigarettes were the only thing that actually stuck. Not to mention they are 100% harmless and odorless, it's only natural to dislike smoke but anyone who complains about vapor is an honest to goodness fucking faggot who doesn't know what they're talking about.

Literally the only purpose in alcohol is to poison yourself and clean. The only reason you can use it to clean is because it's a poison that kills bacteria. I guess some people do need to get drunk regularly to dull their memories of poor life decisions or to "make themselves more outgoing" by dulling their ability to notice themselves being fucking retarded.

Nobody really knows. If it were just their longer life experience being discussed here, we could assume that their diet and national health care offsets the higher rate of lung cancer. The problem is that not only do the have a higher life experience than any other country, but they also have lower rates of people getting lung cancer. It's not a good answer, but it's either genetics or environment that preventing lung cancer from occurring. Unfortunately, Japan is so xenophobic that there's not enough non-asians living there to do study based on statistics, or maybe there is, but hasn't been done yet. I don't know.

According to the people pushing to ban e-cigs, that "vapor" contains harmful carcinogenic chemical byproducts, used to bind the flavor of nicotine to the liquid flavor capsules used in the e-cigs. It's also alleged that using e-cigs while driving is as distracting as using cellphones, and that making e-cigs carry any flavoring whatsoever is marketing them to children and thus getting them hooked on smoking.

>Smoking don't cause lung cancer

Yes, actualy smoking causes every cancer possible. Smoking meka your cells multiply faster but becouse of this they "skip" some phases, more specifically the "verifing" phases, making the odds of creating sick cells higher than persons that don't smoke in any part of the body, so in the end, if you smoke, you may never have a lung cancer but contract pancreatic cancer as a side effect of quick cell replication. You also rise the chances of tumors and your breath gonna stink like shit and your teeth gonna rot

Smoking can increass the odds drasticaly but it don't mean you gonna have cancer, you can be a lucky one and live 100 years smoking, but I don't quite think this is the rule. Due my shitty luck, I prefer not to incress the odds against me

Society has changed a lot since the 1950s. While the concept that smoking is something cool was correct back then, it's done a complete 180 and now it's considered something that only trailer trash and losers do, and the health scares that stem from anti-smoking propaganda are over-exaggerated. In the end, both extremes are retarded. Smoking is smoking, but now a large amount of people think that catching a whiff on the street is a one way ticket to fucking cancer.

Your wi-fi router is slowly inducing various cancers in you yet you believe it's perfectly harmless. Some time ago people believed that tobacco, uranium and asbestos were harmless. Today people believe that "e-cigarettes", artificial edulcorants and all our wi-fi/wimax/3-4-5G bullshit are harmless. To each era its sanitary scandals.

If you get a cancer, it won't be induced by second hand smoke, that's for sure. It'll be all the diesel smoke you breathed in if you live in a big city, or all the diet soda you swallow believing it's healthy. It may also be titanium dioxide if you get a little too much (if there is some in your toothpaste, plus your medication, and sweets).

Or simply overall shitty diet.

Of course smoking is harmful, but holy shit, people's obsession with it as if it was the biggest health threat humanity could face is hilarious. I laugh when people living in big cities get mad at smokers for being unhealthy, because there's so many things in their environment that are killing them faster and "better" than second hand smoke, the irony is delicious.

Death from lung disease isn't necessarily a painfully quick thing where they'll drug you up so much that you can't even feel it anymore as soon as it hits.

It's been a long, long time since she's been able to walk more than short distances, and as I stated in my post there, she's not even able to do that much right now. In her own words from a few years back, my aunt's lungs look like a meteorite. Obviously, just living is uncomfortable when you're like that.

Depends on the fish. Shitty river fish isn't as good as pork or beef, sure, but anything made from salmon is god tier.

if i recall correctly, that number is skewed because they kept some old people on govt data that they thought were alive at 145 or something years oldm because no one told anyone about their deaths so people could collect neetbux for the old ppl.

Secondhand smoke scares are not completely unjustified, and that type of fear hasn't been a prominent issue since like 2008. One extreme is far less retarded than the other; one side causes the propagation of self-destructive and disgusting habits, and the other side causes the avoidance of people with such habits. I can't of any negative side effects of being afraid of secondhand smoke.

I am a Slav and Slavs smoke like crazy.
Even with literally half the population smoking in my country the average life span is 73 years.
People here on average smoke like 1 pack a day.

People also drink a lot.
I think it comes with people coming to terms with the fact that life is shit.

Smoking kills, but what are you living for anyways?
