I was reading a medical encyclopedia from the 1960’s and in the section on pregnancy
, it stated that pregnant women should limit their smoking to 10 cigarettes a day. At that same time, it was thought that smoking MAY be hazardous to one’s health. Ridiculous… isn’t it?
Researchers are finding things out all the time about the effects of smoking
. Cigarettes are one of the most dangerous vices we have as people. I know of one person who died in her 30’s and I know of others that lived a long life. This tells me personally that while cigarettes are dangerous, the extent of damage that they cause may be largely based on a person’s genetic makeup.
Now, with all that being said, if you ask anybody, they’ll tell you that ONE cigarette is just too much.
