You could say the same about copier paper – all those paper cuts waiting to happen, 500 sheets in a ream, no certainty of completely preventing them without redevising the production of the wares to ensure it’s avoided in future….
That isn’t to say a paper cut knocks five minutes off your expected lifespan, but at the time it may seem inconvenient for at least that long….
By that measure, and to reiterate what I’ve already said – make cigarettes health-giving, pleasant to smell and taste and above all ensure the drug effect isn’t nauseating or dizzying and there’s a greater possibility it will become the accepted staple foodstuff of all our tomorrows without any nay-sayers or reason enough to malign it. There’s surely enough money in the industry to invest in that kind of future for the product…, so why do cigarettes smell acrid, taste awful, induce such a feeling of sickness and incur fatal diseases?
