Con

Numerous cigarette manufacturers and tobacco companies still, at least in subversive ways via disinformative advertising campaigns, claim that cigarettes to not cause cancer. There are also scientists who claim that tobacco does not definitively cause cancer.

I say, bullsh*t! It is up to my opponent to explain how cigarettes do not cause cancer.

Can you stop this debate thingy for once? I accidently thought that you were pro. Sorry for the crazy stuff.
Debate Round No. 1

Con

Alas, it appears that my opponent agrees with me that cigarettes do cause cancer. Unless he or she wishes to add something else, which I would be grateful for, I do not know what else to suggest, aside from the fact that scientific analysis does prove that tobacco is indeed carcenogenic.

ETKANG forfeited this round.

Ah, I spoke too soon on that "win by default" thing (for those who understand what I'm talking about -- Hoosierpapi, perhaps).

Yeah, congrats, you won two, I suppose circumstances have to swing your way once in a while...

Yes and no, You see, cancer is caused by the effect taken in when you smoke. That being said, if a biproduct of an object causes harm, the product itself causes harm. If a car hits you but you only touch the headlights, it's not JUST the headlight's fault. The headlights don't have the neccessary equipment in order to hit you with the force you were dealt, therefore, the driving force, that being the rest of the car, is at fault as well. A cigarette causes cancer because a biproduct of the cigarette causes cancer.

it's not the tobacco causing the cancer, it's the burning of carbon.

VAPORIZE and it's perfectly healthy.

Actually most major cigarette companies have admitted, both on their websites or in commercial advertisement that cigarettes have a high chance of causing cancer.
