Umm.. Well..

My doctor, Dr. Faux Falls M.D. told me several times that smoking is indeed good for the health, as it has many chemicals which induce cancer, something he told me is very good for the skin, teeth, heart, lungs, bladder, liver and throat. Since he first told me that, I have begun smoking and have gotten skin cancer, which, according to Dr. Falls, improves my health!

Well, according to a website run by medical doctors[1], smoking does indeed cause lung cancer, bladder cancer, stomach cancer, etc... So how is this healthy?

Cancer kills, and lung cancer, according to NBC news[2], is the most deadly cancer, and has taken the most lives of any types of cancer.

How is this healthy then?

The answer is, It is not.

If it causes death, then why am I not dead yet, hmmmmmm?

Smoking being bad for the health... it's all a scam!
Reeseroni

Con

"...why have I not died yet?"

This is not a question that I would ask myself, if I were you in the conditions provided (being a smoker). But rather, what if I die?

It has been proven that smoking kills. As it is not a leading cause of death, it still recognizable.

Smoking is by far NOT healthy

Reasons for voting decision: Not sure if Pro is a troll so I wont award conduct to either side. S&G equal. Pro makes weak argument that appeals to authority (not a sourced one, just one that 'he knows' about) and so many logical fallacies in his argument, I can't even...Points to con. Con used sources to strengthen his argument so points for that to con as well.
