A person who smokes will develop cardiovascular disease earlier in life, so their quality of life is impacted earlier that a non-smoker. Plus the added impact of a lifetime shortened by 5 years for the smoker.
Don't worry about him. Linda used to cut and paste the same stuff. Until she died that is.

The researchers reviewed the medical records of 3,564 men and 4,362 women who did not have any record of cardiovascular disease at age 50. The men and women were followed for several decades and all cases of heart attack, coronary heart disease, angina, stroke, claudication (pain in the legs caused by circulation problems), and death from cardiovascular disease were recorded.

Followed for several decades and they started out at AGE 50! So at what average age was death 70-80-90 WHAT! They dont say nor do they state what the cause of death was.......except to toss in their own anti-smoker opinion of:

""The researchers note that this might be due to other smoking-related causes such as lung disease and cancer.""

Of which they cant prove one dam thing!

Its typical anti-smoking propaganda. If they went to such depths youd think they would have averaged out death rates pro and con,but they didnt so it leads to the RAW Data to sift thru to find the actual answer. But no doubt we wouldnt even find that in the raw data but in the actual individual files themselves!

We might find non-smokers died 3 fold that of smokers after age 80.

We might find most smokers lived into their mid 80s!

Theres a bunch of things that could be found that they didnt report. If the best they could toss out was theyre opinion after being walloped with an even risk factor between both groups they had to say something negative......

If thats what they had,they had NOTHING.

These low-risk 50-year-olds tended to live into their 90s, whereas the median survival for men and women with two major cardiovascular risk factors was roughly a decade shorter!

Why I didnt see that before! so 85 would be a mean age of average........when Americas average life expectancy is 78.5 and most all of these folks made it to their 90s smoking or not.

Then that explains this:

Study: live to 100 by defying all health advice

Einstein College recently studied folks who lived past age 95. The reluctantly reported result: "People who live to 95 or older are no more virtuous than the rest of us in terms of their diet, exercise routine or smoking and drinking habits."

Einstein College press release: ... 78&pt=news

Did you notice in link above that they just state that the very old smoked about as much as did people who died younger, with no detail given, although detail is given regarding eating, boozing, exercise, and so on? Well, when it came to publishing the abstract with the National Institutes of Health, they ignore smoking results entirely! They do say that smoking was studied, but make no mention whatsoever that smoking was not shown to impair longevity: again, as with the press release, precise detail is given regarding other studied factors, but when it came to smoking -- the holy taboo of all holy taboos -- they simply couldn't bear even to mention their own finding!

Here it is: the official NIH abstract:

OMG there is a lot of denial still going on by smokers! haha

Hey confederate, I bet you believe in rainbows, unicorns and pots of gold you goofy sun-a-ma-gun

No matter how much time passes, the denial by smokers continues until their last stinky, nasty, pain filled last puff of air before they croak!

Idiocy knows no bounds when it comes to an addict in denial

Stick with that, loser.
<quoted text>As opposed to smokers who excrete poison that smells like hot garbage when they exhale. Your mouth stinks and literally makes people sick. Good for you. Your parents must be SO proud.
Why attack me I don't smoke, never have. Have your nurse up your dosage and go back to doing that Barney puzzle.

You should start. The controlled breathing may mitigate your hissy fits.
