erbravia:

What are you smoking?

smoking has been blamed also as a cause of lung cancer. The truth is it has no direct correlation;

The lung cancer rate among smokers is over 20 times that of non-smokers. I think that tells us something.

"Life expectancy for smokers is at least 10 years shorter than for nonsmokers."

You could not be more wrong. Scientific study after study has shown the correlation.

smoking has been blamed also as a cause of lung cancer. The truth is it has no direct correlation; that if you smoke like 2 packs of cigarette a day you will have cancer is not true. Same with COPD. It is a risk factor by creating constant irritant to the body and decreasing oxygen to the body cells but many people develop it as well.

Smoking is a risk but all we have are circumstantial evidence. Smoking is found a the scene of the crime for cancer and COPD and many researchers simply said it is the smoking gun. I am just wondering why nobody is suing the medical field for claiming things that never were.
