    Well, even if further research bears it out, you still won't get a free pass. Anti-smoking campaigns always focus on lung cancer because that's the sexy disease, but the #1 health reason to avoid smoking is heart disease.

    Not to mention emphysema, increased risk of all vascular diseases, and smelling like shit all the time.
