A person learns only from his own mistakes. He will not listen to what others say. You can do one thing. Chain smoke three packs a day for six months and then try to climb three floors speedily to realize what space in lungs is then occupied by the carbon deposition in the air sacks. You dont need any friendly advice or medical journels to realize the (wonderfull? ) things caused by less supply of oxygen to your blood.

Heavy exercise also produces free radicals which can cause cancer, even the food you eat has carcenogens and causes free radicals. You saying me to have more. I advice you to add 100 glass of water in your body in a day. It should me good for you na? Oh! you don't know your body is having 70% of water so water should not harm you.

You said “Heavy exercise also produces free radicals which can cause cancer, even the food you eat has carcenogens and causes free radicals” I say---? Your discussion is not “what are different causes of cancer.” (Stick to the topic. btw please learn the spelling of carcinogens before talking of cancer ) You said “You saying me to have more.” I say -? You’re asking for proof from everybody without an attitude of seeing things in right perspective so it will be better if you get the proof yourself by smoking more than three packs a day instead of asking others. You said “I advice you to add 100 glass of water in your body in a day. It should me good for you na?” I say -?I did not ask “Is drinking 100 glasses of water injurious to health?” BTW betcha I can drink 100 glass of water without any harm to my body. You said “Oh! you don't know your body is having 70% of water so water should not harm you.” I say ? Thanks for telling me that body is 70% water but I don’t know how to find percentage. You’re guru so perhaps you can tell

No smoking - no smoking sign
Yes of course smoking is the leading cause of lung cancer. There is proof from the scientists and doctors and. They have compared countless people who's smoked to people who doesn't smoke. There are xrays, and they even showed an actual lung who belonged to the person who smoked. It is shown that in statics that people who smoke are likely to get cancer.

Statistics are a joke. I can show you statistics that shows that ice cream causes drownings. Does it make it true? No, but I can show a correlation between the two and give you statistics on it.
