    I have seen quite a few gays this week while out for drinks smoking their cigarettes in a very feminine fashion
    One guy was rolling his eyes each time he exhaled the smoke and the hand gesture was very effeminate.
    If you are feminine looking smoking like Bette Davis did in her movies does not look very encouraging.
    I think when a guy smokes like that-like a woman it shows insecurity and a failed attempt to impress.

    Thankfully I do not smoke and will never smoke. I stay away from smokers.

    If they can smoke like that, they are probably just as fierce.

    BBC NEWSA farmer who lit up a cigarette in his tractor could face a fine of up to £1,000 after he was deemed to be smoking in his workplace.
    The quiet smoke break while parked at the side of a road in County Antrim was stubbed out when a tobacco control officer intervened.
    The tractor was deemed by the officer to be a commercial vehicle capable of "carrying more than one person".
    As a result, the farmer was told he was in breach of smoking regulations.
    He was issued with a notice warning him that he could have to pay a four-figure fine.

    why can't they smoke a cigarette like they want to? how is that a problem? I would understand if you are worried about that they smoke and about general public health but that is kind of none of your business how people smoke

    WEBMDAlcohol use and smoking were linked with reduced volume in the hippocampus, and obesity and high fasting blood sugar levels were associated with reduced precuneus size, according to the study.

    http://www.webmd.com/heart-disease/news/20150728/heart-disease-alzheimers-linked-by-common-risk-factors

    WEBMD"We currently do not have effective treatments for Alzheimer's disease, so the focus is on prevention," King said.




    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24051060Conclusions:
    Chronic cigarette smoking in this young-to-middle aged cohort was associated with smaller total hippocampal and subfield volumes, which were exacerbated by advancing age. Findings also indicated an adverse smoking dose/duration response (i.e., pack-years) with total hippocampal and select subfield volumes. These hippocampal volume abnormalities in smokers may be related to the deficiencies in episodic learning and memory in young-to-middle-aged smokers reported in previous studies.

    Scientists analysed bran scan and mental test results on 1,629 Americans aged under or over 50.Smoking and obesity were linked to shrinkage of the posterior cingulate cortex, a brain area that plays a role in memory retrieval as well as emotional and social behaviour.

    Bran scan? Really?
    That's so scientifical!

    "9 July 2014 - Smokers have a 45% higher risk of developing dementia than non-smokers, according to information published today by the World Health Organization (WHO) and Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI). Evidence reviewed by WHO reveals a strong link between smoking and the risk of dementia, and the more a person smokes, the higher the risk. It is estimated that 14% of Alzheimer’s disease cases worldwide are potentially attributable to smoking."

    That is not surprising.

    Nature.comThe associations of alcohol, coffee and tobacco consumption with gait in a community-dwelling population

    V J A Verlinden, A Maksimovic, S S Mirza, M A Ikram, J C Kiefte-de Jong, A Hofman, O H Franco, H Tiemeier and J N van der Geest

    Abstract
    Background/Objectives:

    Gait is an important health indicator, relating strongly to the risk of falling, morbidity and mortality. In a community-dwelling population, we investigated associations of alcohol, coffee and tobacco consumption with gait.

    Subjects/Methods:

    Two thousand forty-six non-demented participants from the Rotterdam Study underwent gait assessment by electronic walkway. We measured gait velocity and Global Gait, which is the average of seven gait domains: Rhythm, Phases, Variability, Pace, Tandem, Turning and Base of Support. Alcohol, coffee and tobacco consumption was assessed by questionnaires. With analysis of covariance, we investigated associations of consumption of alcoholic beverages, coffee consumption and smoking with Global Gait, gait velocity and the seven individual gait domains.

    Results:

    In all, 81.9% of participants drank alcohol, 92.4% drank coffee, 17.3% were current smokers and 50.9% were past smokers. Moderate alcohol consumption (1–3 glasses per day) associated with better gait, as measured by Global Gait (0.20 standard deviations (s.d.) (95% confidence interval: 0.10; 0.31)), gait velocity (2.65 cm/s (0.80; 4.50)), Rhythm and Variability. Consuming high amounts of coffee (>3 cups per day) associated with better Global Gait (0.18 s.d. (0.08; 0.2icon_cool.gif), gait velocity (2.63 cm/s (0.80; 4.45)), Pace, Turning and Variability. Current smoking associated with worse Global Gait (−0.11 s.d. (−0.21; 0.00)), gait velocity (−3.47 cm/s (−5.33; −1.60)), Rhythm and Pace, compared with non-smokers.

    Conclusions:

    In a community-dwelling population, consuming >1 cup of coffee and 1–3 glasses of alcohol relate to better gait, whereas smoking is related to worse gait. Further studies are required to evaluate whether interventions targeting substance consumption may aid to prevent or reduce gait deterioration and thereby related health problems.

    Neither is bran scan. That's the point.

    Reading from the context it is obviously brain, but I did not misspell the word.

    so there is roughly 20 % of smokers in the world and only 14 % POTENTIALLY are attributed to smoking, so rest of them are non smokers? icon_lol.gif

    that is what I call biased scientific study


    and this was published today:

    Science is never about absolutes. Maybe you need a lesson in the meaning of the word "science". There is always room for improvements and further study. It is obvious that smoking is definitely a health hazard. There MAY be potential benefits to parkinson's, but I can name so many contradictions to that. Again, science is about controlling variables. Keeping variables the same and studying what you keep fixed. Scientific, anecdotal evidence and common sense tells you that smoking is a health hazard.

    I don't know why Bonaparts feel the need to laugh at these people who might (yes, might) have suffered from various diseases from smoking.

    It will be a grand day when SCIENCE tells me to start smoking because it cures Alzheimer's! What rubbish.

    Smoking is more than just nicotine. Smoking has tar and other disgusting stuff.

    Have you heard of e-cigarettes? Their intention is to reduce the harmful stuff and just have nicotine.

    NOW THAT IS INTERESTING.

    Nicotine MAY reduce alzheimer's but smoking increases the risk. That is science.
