There are quite a few health benefits associated with smoking, so many in fact that even the brainwashed media are often forced to admit that smoking is actually healthy.
Despite this, there is often an internal struggle at the heart of the subject, where the writer attempts to justify the claims that smoking is harmful was bad science, and covers claims that smoking is healthy with disclaimers like "but we dont know how this is possible". Heart attacks and strokes are caused by bad diet and eating junk, something most Americans do from birth, so thats is why they often take this for granted in these reports, while ignoring the fact that diet and lack of exercise are the #1 and #2 causes of heart attacks and strokes.
Smoking help you revive stress, relax, lower the blood pressure, and as mentioned in this report, helps you lose weight. It clears the pathways in the brain, helping to prevent alzheimer's, parkinsons and dementia later in life. And then we come to the old story that smokers die before they can take advantage of any of these benefits. The truth is, a combination of saturated fat, modified sugars, alcohol (a sugar), stress, driving, work, medication and the Mother in-law, all degenerate the human body at a vastly accelerated rate, every day, making it essential to sneak out and relax with a smoke.
