You were so busy being petty(i.e. 2 misspelled words) that you missed the entire point of my post: note at the end I stated [/SARCASM OFF].

That being said obesity raises insurance rates, it also kills.

has anyone walked into cancer centers of late, and seen all the little kids who have cancer? It's not from second hand smoke, or from smoking, cancer is an epedemic...why?

well, for one, all the chemical spills and accidents...all the crapola being washed into our streams and water tables...all the arsenic they put in water...all the chemicals in the foods we digest...fumes from trucks and cars...not to mention all the bomb testing back in the what, early 40's? And lets not forget about the radon in the ground...how many homes are filled with radon...how many cabinets are build with formaltihide? Oh, and lets not forget those scents we burn in the home which are toxic...

My Gosh people, wake up...they've brainwashed you into believing that smoking is much worse then it is. I'm not saying smoking isn't bad for you, but I've lost several close friends from cancer who never smoked a day in they're lives...

I cannot believe how small some of our worlds are, that we actually dismiss all this other stuff...?
We are disussing the dangers of tobacco on this thread.

I didn't miss that at all. It was off topic, was it not?

No it wasn't. While it was a different subject, some people are annoyed by fat people. The end results are considered comparable.

It was different subject, therefore off topic. Get it?

Back on topic, tobacco is a dangerous substance. Secondhand smoke causes harm to others. That is not okay.
