Gullibility is more addictive than smoking.
Pictured lured with an imaginary fish from here.
Soon you will be told that 'drinkers are at a higher risk of dementia', that fat people are more likely to get dementia and that both salt and sugar cause dementia (so if you like sweet-and-sour, you're done for).
Why? Well, because smokers turn demented when they get very old.
One. Dementia is, aside from rare early-onset cases, an affliction of the very old.
Two. We have been told over and over by the hate-filled smokophobes that smokers don't get old.
Three. The NHS and the Department of Energy are proving very effective at killing off the elderly before they can possibly get to the stage of being demented.
Four. As with asthma and a whole host of allegedly smoking-related diseases, dementia is claimed to be rapidly increasing while the rate of smoking has been falling.
If you want to play the correlation game, all those diseases are quite obviously caused by not smoking. The only alternative interpretation is that smoking cures or prevents all those illnesses. It's fun, the antismoker's correlation game, isn't it?
Naturally, the drones are out in the comments. Here's a good one:
Really, this has been well known for years and smoking affects dementia onset in women as well. - Reubenene, Somewhere In The World, 6/2/2012 22:18
Somewhere in another world, more like. Antismokers have long since abandoned any connection to reality and any pretence at bothering with truth or decency, as Man Widdicombe demonstrates. Those people are devoid of any human feeling and consumed entirely by their personal hate. They have no trouble blaming smokers for every conceivable disease, they believe that smoke can pass through solid walls, they believe that even looking at a smoker will kill them, and they have no problem with calling for extreme violence against one-fifth of the population just because they happen to dislike those people's lifestyles. They see a twisted version of reality and call it the world.
These people are calling smokers mad. They want us to be like them.
I feel a new slogan coming on. 'Glad to be Mad'.
