Another LIE!

Most of the headlines say the risk is "Double" if you smoke.

But the article says it increases risk by 2 tenths of 1 %(.2%)

The study also shows that if you drink a couple of beers a day - you DECREASE your chances by about 15%

I guess the moral of the story is: have beer with your smoke!!


The amazing part is that the study (done by the equivelent of the ACS in europe)- actually STATES in it that the UK REALLY needs to pass the "Plain Packaging" bill!
