    I am the decision maker of my life. I choose the way I want to be unhealthy.

    And throw in a double order of greasy cheesy fries.

    Smoking in public buildings has been illegal here in Illannoy for a year and a half.

    Smoking is infinitely worse for the lungs, heart and other systems than eating a load of nasty food, even if it’s every day. ED to some extent is normal after 20 years and COPD has usually set in by then. It’s the worst common habit for health there is.

    Industrial cigarettes became common in the U.S. around 1890 and by 1910, the life expectancy had dropped to 45 from almost 65.

    Actually, despite the assumption that saturated fat increases cholestrol, no study has actually proved it. it’s just assumed. Same thing with artificial fats like the hydrogenated fats. Admittedly, the idea of taking an unsaturated or monounsaturated fat and hydrogenating it is not a welcome one. Seems like bad things happen when we tamper with foods, like GMOs. Have to wait for someone to actually do the biochemical study on the fats, though. It’s really surprising no one has. Admittedly, it’s cheaper just to assume than do a major study with before and after blood tests of hundreds or thousands of people when they eat and do it for some weeks or months.

    Nabuquduriuzhur, you’re right about the smoking - and the fact that second hand smoke is done to me rather than by me.

    On the other hand, all we have to do is look at the obesity in our country, and the high diabetes rates, especially among children, to know that something we’re eating (along with lack of exercise) isn’t doing us any good.

    I remember reading that the study that claimed second hand smoke was bad for people was rigged to get those results. When the study came out it was front page news, but when it came out about it being a bais study, it was buried on second to last page. I grew up in a house where everyone but me smoked. I have be inhaleing 2nd hand smoke for 45 years and according to my doctor, my lungs are great!

    Nabuquduriuzhur–I’ve never heard that saturated fats increase cholesterol. I’ve heard that dietary cholesterol increases cholesterol, which seems like a no-brainer to me. Saturated fats cause deposits in your arteries which can cause a thrombus or constriction of blood vessels. Each can lead to heart attacks. That is proven fact. Never heard of hydrogenated fats causing high cholesterol either. The allegation there is that the artificial addition of hydrogen atoms causes hyper-saturated fats that create the same problems of saturated fats on a higher level. Some also say that trans-fats cause cancer, but I have not found any medical studies that sufficiently support that proposition. The assumptions you are making are unfounded, because you are making the wrong assumptions. There is plenty of well-researched literature on the dangers of cholesterol, saturated fats and trans fats.

    I read one that claimed secondhand smoke is worse for you than firsthand smoke (true story). So, I took up smoking so I could live longer.

    Nabuquduriuzhur, Thanks for giving us your view of things but please don’t make up statistics and call them facts. Life expectancy at Birth in the US for 1890 was 45.2, and in 1920 it was 54.1. http://web.econ.ohio-state.edu/rsteckel/VITA/2002%20EH.Net%20Encyclopedia—2002.pdf I agree with you that smoking is one of the worst things that we can do to ourselves but making up statistics makes you sound like a kook and not very believable.

    Misses the point. You want to do it to yourself, that’s your business. Second hand smoke nails other people.

    Not so simple, RCMinor. Very few proprietors will exclude a significant number of potential customers, making that “different one” nothing but a fantasy. There are also the employees, frequently young (I live in a college town), who have limited work choices - and are probably preferred hires - who are the victims of the 2ndhand smoke work environment.
