Something To Think About

Vancouver-trekearth



















I am not on an anti-smoking crusade. I am using the example of the increased scientific and medical finite human knowledge over the decades of the dangers of smoking and tobacco use in comparison to the infinite knowledge of the Biblical God.  God is omniscient.

Whereas human cultural views within societies change, based on knowledge of the time, and what is perceived as knowledge of the time, in contrast, God does not change in nature and in morality.

'Malachi 3:6 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

6 “For [a]I, the Lord, do not change; therefore you, O sons of Jacob, [b]are not consumed.' Malachi scholar W. Ward Gasque writes that God is steadfast and in his character and faithful in his promises to his people. Gasque (1986: 993).

Is this context to the sons of Jacob. The immutability of God means his divine nature, attributes, consciousness, and will cannot change. God does not grow or develop, as there are no variations in his infinite, eternal nature at different points within his existence.

The inspired Scripture of this infinite, eternal, omniscient God would therefore reflect the nature, character and morality of this God and his plans forever, regardless of society changes, scientific and medical advances and related and cultural change whether from the left, right, or centre in the West or other human cultures in the 21st century.

GASQUE, W.WARD (1986) ‘Malachi’, in F.F. Bruce (ed.), The International Bible Commentary, Grand Rapids, Zondervan.

Quote:

Carcinogens in Tobacco Smoke Tobacco smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, of which more than 70 are known to cause, initiate or promote cancer and are called "carcinogens".

Exposure to tobacco smoke increases the risk of developing cancer.

Health Canada recommends that Canadians stop smoking and avoid second-hand smoke.

Smokeless Tobacco Products:

A Chemical and Toxicity Analysis

The amounts of the toxic chemicals found in smokeless tobacco products vary depending on how the product is manufactured or processed.

Several forms of smokeless tobacco products are available in Canada.

All smokeless tobacco products contain toxic chemicals that can cause cancer.

The use of smokeless tobacco products can cause harmful health effects.

Mini Size Cigarettes: Smoke Emissions and Toxicity Analyses Mini size cigarettes may give smokers the impression of reduced yields of smoke because they are shorter than regular or king size cigarettes. 

The smoke from shorter, mini size cigarettes contains the same toxic chemicals, in similar concentrations as the smoke from other Canadian cigarettes.

Smoking mini size cigarettes poses the same risk of harmful health effects as smoking other Canadian cigarettes.

Discount Cigarettes Some Canadian smokers have switched to smoking discount cigarettes rather than quitting smoking or reducing the number of cigarettes they smoke.

The smoke from discount cigarettes contains the same chemicals, in similar concentrations, as the smoke from premium cigarettes.

Smoking discount cigarettes poses the same risk of harmful health effects as smoking other Canadian cigarettes.

Aromatic Amines At least 70 chemicals in tobacco smoke, including aromatic amines, are known to cause, initiate or promote cancer.

The exposure to these chemicals is capable of triggering the conversion of normal cells into cancer cells (mutation).

Aromatic amines present in tobacco smoke have a high potential to develop mutations that can cause cancer.

Contraband Cigarettes Contraband cigarettes raise several questions regarding their health effects.

Smoking contraband cigarettes poses the same risk of harmful health effects as smoking legal cigarettes.

The smoke from contraband cigarettes contains the same chemicals as the smoke from legal cigarettes sold in Canada.

Little Cigars Little cigars (also called "cigarillos") are a relatively new tobacco product.

They are similar in appearance to a cigarette.

Smoking little cigars poses the same risk of harmful health effects as smoking cigarettes.

The origin and type of tobacco used in little cigars are different to that used in cigarettes sold in Canada.

The smoke from little cigars contains the same chemicals as the smoke from cigarettes sold in Canada.

The human race (me included) stay sinful, finite and sometimes foolish in the status quo, and sometimes by God's grace there are good stories of other than the status quo.

Defence of Smokers

Sample

Chapter 6: The Propaganda Machine


Beginning in the early 1950's, the American Cancer Society started to wage war against smoking. Later, the government took up the cudgel and, today, there is a government agency, the Office of Smoking and Health, dedicated to stamping out smoking. Unfortunately, the government propaganda is often predicated upon assertions which are simply untrue. In many instances, these are examples of the "LaLonde effect".

Marc LaLonde was formerly the Canadian Minister of National Health and Welfare. He argued that health messages should be vigorously disseminated, and should be "loud, clear and unequivocal" even if unsupported by scientific evidence. If a particular study showed that smoking might be related to a particular disease, it made no difference to LaLonde whether the study was seriously flawed, or not. He felt that releasing the study was always justified, if it would convince people to stop smoking, since everybody knew that smoking was bad for people.

My late dad used to smoke Camels all the time. He would tell us that when he was a little kid, he used to hide behind the barn and smoke rabbit weed, whatever that was.

When I was little, I remember my mom and dad inviting guests over to play cards, and they would all be smoking (though my mom never smoked), and the living room would be filled with cigarette smoke. I remember going to bed and closing the door, but the smoke would still come under the door, and I hated the smell of cigarette smoke. I would be laying in bed, coughing.

Another time, again when I was quite young, my maternal grandmother was visiting us, and she was in the car with us, and she was smoking a cigarette. Well, I started coughing so bad from the smoke that it irritated her, and she threw her cigarette out the window in disgust (and possibly out of guilt), so that I would stop coughing.

My dad quit for one year, but then started smoking again. But, after a period of time, he quit for good, using his own willpower. He then used to brag about how he was able to quit on his own.

Even as an adult, when I used to live in a quadraplex, my neighbor would smoke (inside his apartment or outside, I'm not sure), and the smoke would enter my apartment somehow, because I could smell the smoke, and the smell would basically fill my apartment, and I absolutely hated that. That would really bother me.

Regarding that ad with Reagan, which I found interesting because, even though I knew he was a movie actor, I never knew he posed for cigarette ads:
"...[Ronald] Reagan mostly did his posing for The Liggett & Myers Tobacco Company, which was later through a series of lawsuits revealed to be covering up the true health effects of smoking through their deceptive advertisements.

Ironically, though he was paid to make smoking cool, Reagan did not smoke himself."
