Medical professionals agree that if you want to be healthy, you need to do three things. First, eat right. Second, exercise. And third, chain smoke. Doctors recommend a bare minimum of two packs a day.
If you think I’m making this up, you’re wrong. It’s based on scientific research. Doctors have known about the benefits of smoking since the late 1800’s. And this is especially true for those suffering from asthma. Take a look at this Scientific ad, if you don’t believe me –
Please note the warning at the bottom of the ad: “Not Recommended For Children Under 6.” This is an important clarification – Children under six CAN smoke – it’s just not recommended.
And the benefits of cigarettes don’t stop there. They’re also good for digestion –
The more accurate term for tobacco cigarettes is “cigarette medicine.” If used properly, and with a sufficient dosage, they can help you live to 100 –
This is probably why, “More Doctors smoke Camels.”
If you’re not so concerned with longevity, and more concerned about your dental health, you should ask your dentist which brand of cigarette medicine he recommends. Your dentist may have very strong feelings on the subject. Here’s one who does –
If you’re concerned about any possible side effects of cigarette medicine, don’t be. However, if you’re one of those pointed-headed geeks who likes to do their own research before starting a new medical regiment, consider this trusted scientific literature –
Now, I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, ‘Wait a minute. Hasn’t there been more recent scientific research that questions the health benefits of smoking?”
I’m going to be perfectly honest with you. Because the last thing I want to do is mislead you. The answer is, “No.”
You’re probably thinking about that group of “fringe” scientists. Those wacky guys who claimed that we actually landed a man on the moon in 1968. Here is an example of their trumped-up “proof” –
Notice how they cleverly added the fake footprints in the foreground to make it look like the astro-NOT was actually walking around? This picture was actually taken on the back lot of Paramount Studios (where they also filmed the “live” television version). It was all connected to Nixon and his Watergate Cover-up. (Truth be told, it’s the real reason Nixon had to resign.)
But back to the health benefits of smoking.
I’m not saying that smoking cigarettes is the answer to MOST of your health concerns. I’m saying that smoking is the answer to ALL your health concerns. At least if you smoke a minimum of two packs a day.
I’ll leave you with this one last piece of medical advice: Remember to only smoke “fresh” cigarettes –
