Hey /a/, have a smoke.
Second-hand smoke contains a higher amount of toxic substances than direct smoke. The amount of the carcinogen dimethylnitrosamine present in direct smoke is between 5.3 and 43 nanograms,while there are between 680 and 823 nanograms in second hand smoke. As a matter of fact, the amount of quinoline from second-hand smoke is eleven times greater than direct smoke. A staggering eighteen thousand nanograms.
In other words, the health risk of people exposed to second-hand smoke is greater than those who actually smoke.
This thing always bothered me. According to this smoker inhales low quantity of dangerous substances, but exhales 10-20 times more. Was it bad translation or I'm missing something here?
It's made up bullshit based off the half-assed research on second-hand smoke that everyone loves to regurgitate.
I don't know about the actual translation though, I don't speak enough moon.
He breathes it all in initially, but exhales most of it again.
You're tryna stir shit up there, girlie?
It's pretty well-known scientific knowledge.
Not anime or manga, though.
tl;dr: Second hand smoke is bad but not nearly as bad as November 11 claims.
As far as I know tap water with high levels of chlorine is more dangerous to your health than second hand smoke.
Your body is actually smart enough to reject most of the harmful shit, which mostly stays with the smoke. Second hand smoke is "more toxic", but less harmful because it has already been dispersed.
Don't smoke unless you fucking know its tobacco leaf. As in you've confirmed with your own eyes that what you are inhaling isn't some chemical stick produced in a factory with maybe some brown stuff in it.
You fucking packet cig plebs disgust me.
Let's settle this once and for all.
>implying that most of the carcinogens, tar etc. don't come from smoking the leaves themselves.
Rolling your own cigarettes is percieved as "healthier" but it really isn't by any signifcant margin.
The only "healthier" cigarette are e-cigs.
Do chocolate cigarettes count?
Reminder that Nicotine is the worst drug there is.
What about Krokodil?
Where do you think we are?
smoking is a legal stimulant
>As far as I know tap water with high levels of chlorine is more dangerous to your health than second hand smoke.
And that's why Japan has the highest life expectancy. Smoking is forbidden in many public places but their tap water has high levels of chlorine. Because water chlorination is worse for health than passive smoking.
Makes perfect sense.
Well it does something, unlike nicotine.
Forbidden in a lot of places now. Like public buildings, certain parks etc.
>kills you faster
>reduces risk of alzheimers
>baby-tier withdrawal symptoms
I think alcohol is worse there buddy
>damages myelin sheath
>memory problems from gaba-b downregulation
>tons of calories
Krokodil is only harmful because of the halfassed synth from codeine that's popular in Russia allows a lot of byproducts
not everyone on 4chan lives on your country
Lots of countries are passing such regulations now.
At what point did I imply that any method of tobacco consumption is healthier than another?
All I'm saying is that cigarettes often have other things apart from tobacco in them, so you should roll your own tobacco brought from a self-researched source to actually get what you want.
Why can't you read?
within my lifetime, smoking is going to become something only pariahs do
the future is bright
Sure, when they don't explode they may not be an immediate threat to your life, but implying they are actually healthy is sort of strange.
well, compared to actual cigarettes...
What do you think the quotation marks are for?
As in, better in leaps and bounds for you than smoking a regular cigarette but not good for you regardless.
You seemed to imply it by saying you get no "chemicals and brown stuff" when you roll your own.
Which would mean, that they would be percieved as healthier.
well chlorine is poisonous and quite lethal in even mild doses, so that's not much of a statement
I live in asia now and it's hard to find weed and pretty much all men smoke cigarettes, I'm now downing a pack a day and am looking forward to my cancer
Cancer is also a matter of personality.
Studies have shown that alphas suffer from heart attack more often, while betas typically die from cancer.
Alright. So a cigarette has additives, a dried tobacco leaf does not. I want to smoke tobacco, not Chemical #279b. I don’t care if neither is more healthy than the other, in fact, I know that with the vast majority of added chemicals there isn’t much of a difference, but I don’t want to take chance that 30 years from now it is discovered that anyone who has ingested Chemical #279b has a chance of spontaneously developing grapefruit sized perianal hematomas full of wasps.
>inb4 “if you don’t want to take chances why do you smoke in the first place”
In the event that at any point you thought that here is my response:
Things you can eat:
I.) dick, a
II.) corn, out of my shit, the
Well I just lost my virginity to a prostitute last week is that alpha or beta, I think working up the courage to go to a massage place was pretty alpha but lasting less than 3 min and crying a bit afterwords is kinda beta, still not sure.
Alpha as in natural leader.
Beta as in natural follower.
If the alpha hierachy applied to humans (which it doesn't), the vast majority of human beings would be Beta.
The vast majority of human beings don't die from cancer.
>I think working up the courage to go to a massage place was pretty alpha
I meant high levels for tap water, which is not that much really.
>one of the largest pharmacy chains in 'Murica has announced that they are going to stop selling cigarettes
This is a good day for Kate.
Next to the burgers I guess
welcome to murica.
where every pharmacy is a poorly disguised convenience store.
>(Which it doesn't)
But alphas and betas do exist, and it's exactly as you've described.
>not selling cigarettes
what backwater do you live in
Healthistan, the worst country in the world.
In most of America at least yes we are dead serious. CVS/Pharmacy (the one ending it), Walgreens, Rite Aid, and any similar stores I haven't mentioned have a tendency to in one part of the store be selling cigarettes and then in another be selling over-the-counter and prescription medicine.
>mfw some faggot smokes near me
How would you feel if you had to eat and smell someone's poop? Oh wait, except poop doesn't give you cancer, unlike your smoke.
how would you feel if some fat virgin on the internet didnt agree with your life style choice? terrified I'm sure
Besides the lack of hat, she looks almost like a 2hu.
>Mfw some fat virgin tries to sound cool for smoking cigarettes to fuel his self-conceived bad boy image between fistfuls of cheetos and gulps of Mountain Dew
Every nonsmoker curses your existences and wishes for your death!
I wonder what she'd think of people who chew tobacco.
No thanks, I've quit for over a year now.
>stopping selling cigarettes
Wow, what's next - stop selling them in hospitals?
Not a 2hu, but she looks like another character that I've seen before.
Not mutually exclusive.
I would let Takane 2 my hu
>life style choice that affects other lives
Not the best choice of words.
Can you think of a single life style that does not affect other lives?
HikkiNEET life style.
I can think of plenty which don't harm others so directly, like the pseudo hermit life I lead right now. At any rate, that's semantics when clearly the intent of that post is that one should be totally fine with being poisoned because the other person poisoning them is deliberately poisoning themself.
You are delusional.
I go where I please, and I please where I go.
One of the hospitals I trained at had a McDonald's in the lounge. Hugely popular, especially among the patients who were admitted.
>One of the hospitals I trained at had a McDonald's in the lounge
What?! Who think this is a good idea for patients?!
Good for money.
>living in a country without fully state funded healthcare where hospitals need to care about money
enjoy selling your freedom to corporations
i'm willing to smoke if it's proposed by a girl like her
Tell Marlboro and you might get lucky.
Burgers and stuff are in themselves, not particularly unhealthy, it's the deep-fried stuff, the fries, and the soda, that's probably the least healthy stuff they serve.
What makes fastfood unhealthy in itself, isn't the meal, it's subsisting on that food to a large degree (perhaps even exclusively), without doing any exercising at all, that's unhealthy.
A regular burger is a meat patty, with dressing, salad, onion, sometimes a slice of cheese, between bread, that in itself isn't really too terribly fat.
Marlboro will never be abe to creat a girl like her.
but if they're able to pull something i might as well buy their stuff
>Every nonsmoker curses your existences and wishes for your death!
I don't. You're the self-righteous cunt.
Is this the smoking girls thread yet?
Malboro smokes best smokes
As long as it sticks to 2D smoking girls I see no problem with it.
Try to not turn this into a smoker circlejerk.
What the fuck are talking about? Having a food joint in the hospital IS freedom, it's not like hospitals are broke, it's not. It's just that getting some money on the side never killed anyone, well except for dumbasses who eat nothing but burgers, but who cares about them, right?
I think it's their right.
I bet you hate alcohol, fat food, guns, and fast cars too, you selfrighteous cocksucker.
Getting pissed is fine but smoking is for plebs.
Enjoy your cell damage fagboy.
Of course is 2D. As for the smoking circlejerk, that's seldom and only when it's stated on the OP or when someone sparks the it.
Drinking is healthy in low amounts, cancer isn't.
Getting pissed it's not low amounts, also that's a myth, drinking is not healthy.
Depends on what your drinking dick head, red wine lowers the risk of heart disease.
Cigarettes are boring. There are better ways to flood your brain with endorphins without smelling like shit. I'd know, I'm a former chainsmoker and now a marathon runner. Natural highs last for days and are awesome.
Guess I'll have to samefag while watching D-Frag.
The same studies that claimed that, also said that anything higher than 80ml/day increased the risk of heart disease.
Keep in mind that people that drink wine also tend to have a healthier life style and eat healthier food.
Also, more recent research has found that the positive effects of drinking wine might actually come from resveratrol, and not from alcohol.
>tfw cigar and pipe smoker
>hardly do it around people because omgurkillinmababbies
That's a that's untrue, alcohol has terrible terrible effects on your heart in the long run.
Cigar does have a really strong smell so that's probably why people get angry.
>Eating shit will kill you faster than cancer.
>What is bacteria
Little girls should not smoke!
Bacteria are a jewish lie.
Not the guy, but I actually started smoking because it was the only way to get five minute breaks from a shitty job.
No Smoking? No Break.
I've got a much better job now, but I'm trying to quit, as I don't want my family knowing.
Thank you. Should I let the thread die or necro bump it?
Anime with smoking girls?
Nobue was the best in ichigo Mashimaro for this very reason
Let it die, let the Zvezdatrolls die with time, then we can have nice things, r-right?
We can just hope then.
