Guiyang, China — Here's some exciting medical news from the Chinese government: Smoking is great for your health.

Cigarettes, according to China's tobacco authorities, are an excellent way to prevent ulcers.

They also reduce the risk of Parkinson's disease, relieve schizophrenia, boost your brain cells, speed up your thinking, improve your reactions and increase your working efficiency.

Wow, they must be smoking something other than cigarettes over there. How fcukin stupid do you have to be to think that smoking is good for you

--Taken From Site--
“Smoking removes your troubles and worries,” says a 37-year-old female magazine editor, quoted approvingly on the website. “Holding a cigarette is like having a walking stick in your hand, giving you support.

“Quitting smoking would bring you misery, shortening your life.”

Such statements are widely believed in China.

--End--

anything and everything, is bad and good for you. in moderation anything can be good for you, if you abuse anything it can be bad for you,

imagine you drank 8 liters of milk a day, i dont know how healthy that would be.
same thing goes with smoking a pound of weed a day,

im prettysure the odd joint wont kill you tho.

the human body can handle a little bit of everything.

I know people who smoked all their life and lived past 80 or 90 without any issues. Just because shit CAN happen don't mean it will. The point about smoking is the odds go WAY the **** up.

And RE thinking smoking is good for you = natural selection of the bottom of the food chain.

nicotine is a stimulant that has beneficial properties on brain activity. Its all the other shit in the cigarrettes that is bad for you.
