Smoke Not.                                                         
Even before man could control fire, people understood that the products of combustion can not be consumed. Once burned, edible plants and animals were no longer palatable and the hot smoke cast down wind of a flame was avoided by men and animals alike. Therefore, long before there were warning labels on cigarette packs, people knew that inhaling the concentrated smoke of burning leaves (or any other inhalational substance), like many other activities that may be briefly pleasurable, carries with it some avoidable risk. Smoking causes, contributes to, or accelerates many different forms of ailments like heart disease, vascular and circulatory insufficiency, stroke and neurological deficit, lung and pulmonary failure, and of course, cancer. They say that one can fall victim to any of these problems without smoking. That is true. They also say that it can never be too late to stop smoking. That is not true.
