Thanks for the Hub! Educating people about smoking is very important, and it's important to know how to really reach out to different groups of people. I encourage people to visit www.tobaccofreesj.com to learn more about educating others and finding the resources they need.

Dr Wydner made the first connection between smoking and lung cancer in 1948. But to make a long story short (you can research it yourself), he spent a life time proving smoking caused health problems. Years later he admitted his research was wrong and recanted it.

Did you now a coroner can not tell the difference between a non-smoker and a smoker by examining the lungs.

If your are a smoker and go for an x-ray the doctor will never know you smoke by looking at your x-ray. That's way they always ask first.

The governments own statistics show that very few smokers contract lung cancer. It's the non-smokers and ex-smokers who are victims.

Smoke does not turn the lungs black. The tar in tobacco has a different composition than the black tar you are made to believe that it is.

Those pictures of black or gray lungs are either cancer or heavy air pollution. Gray lungs are not so common anymore.

The black that show up on x-rays is from being a miner or exposure to asbestos. It is scar tissue that can also be caused by severe asthma as child. Smoking does not cause scar tissue

Man was using tobacco long before cancer showed up.

If you don't believe me do the research yourself. Find a good, honest coroner. A honest doctor is hard to find.

The best way is the next time you go for an x-ray, if you smoke tell them you don't, if you don't tell them you do, and tell them your a heavy smoker 2-3 packed a day. The befuddled look on their face when they see your x-ray will be priceless.
