More Doctors Smoke Camels than any other cigarette!

 
Today the medical fraternity know conclusively of the dangers and health risks associated with smoking. 1957 marked the year that the then-Surgeon General Leroy Burney reported a causal link between smoking and lung cancer. Interestingly, it took another 7 years for the Surgeon General Luther Terry to commission a special committee that produced Smoking and Health: Report of the Advisory Committee to the Surgeon General. (Please take a look it's a very sobering read).

One should note that an English physician, Dr Charles R. Drysdale, issued a report in 1878 (long before the commission) confirming the dangers of smoking. He had been researching the effects of cigarettes and in 1864 published a paper showing that tobacco could cause "jaundice" ... "distressing palpitations"... "and other health issues". Dr Drysdale also cautioned about the risks of second-hand smoke. As Archibald MacLeish said, "There is only one thing more painful than learning from experience and that is not learning from experience".

Smoking tobacco cigarettes can lead to various health risks as tobacco is a harmful content found in regular cigarettes. There are over 4000 chemicals found in tobacco cigarettes out of which few are carcinogenic and can cause cancer. To quit smoking electronic cigarettes are widely used these days as they do not have tobacco and are safer as they produce vapours.
