    ‘Correlation does not prove causality.’ Maybe people prone to cancer have an itch (from the cancer cells) that is only relieved by smoking, so the cancer causes the smoking, not the other way around.


    To prove causality, one needs a controlled experiment. In mice, selected randomly to smoke or not smoke, the mouse smokers have much more cancer, proving that smoking causes cancer in mice.


    But we can’t use that as proof that smoking causes cancer in humans, because ‘Der Mann nicht eine Maus ist!’


    (Pity the courts finally decided to ignore all that excellent research by the tobacco companies that proved that smoking does not cause cancer in humans.)

    It is an addiction and to treat its victims as pariahs with usurious taxation so the rest of us can get off cheap is iniquitous to the least.

    “My wife is an APRN, and she refuses to take on a new patient who smokes tobacco.”

    I think that her refusal to take on a new patient who smokes tobacco is a repudiation of part of the Hippocratic Oath.

    I like brownies myself. Not a smoker. I’m sure your sister is, and will continue to be, very busy with tobacco addicts

    Some people really get off on telling us how smart they are and how many degrees they have. I guess that’s because they give no other evidence of either intelligence or education.
