seven million people per year die from

tobacco related conditions.

That is roughly 20,000 per day.Covid-19 is currently killing on average 7,000 per day.

Why is the World in lockdown due to a virus that's killing a third less per day than what is legally killing the populace on a daily basis.

Has buying a cigarette ever caused the World to go into lockdown.

Just think about the stats,for every person that dies of covid-19 every day 3 die from smoking.

Now is the time to ban cigarettes worldwide,it kills 3 times as many people per day than covid19 but makes a lot of money for nations when it comes to taxation.

As to the question why it doesn’t get banned, people don’t want to be fully controlled by their governments.

If we were to ban smoking, next comes drinking, then driving cars, then eating various types of food, then any activity that carries risk etc etc

But we don’t mind it when it’s drugs?

I thought most people dying because of this were because of underlying problems, one off them being Breathing?..

Smoking is one of the worst things as far as taking much needed funds away from the Health Services, but while people are trying to pitch this Virus against Smoking,(and I've never smoked!)I think the most victims are smokers!..

Smoking for the sake of the health service needs looking at, but this virus at this moment in time is the biggest threat to all that is human!..

Best thing Labour did was banning smoking in public places. Those days when you came home from a night out stinking of smoke.

My mates son is an arsonist. He always goes home smelling of smoke.

As someone who worked for 3 years in the vaping industry I’d love to see cigarettes banned. They are genuinely a horrific thing.

Vaping is potentially more dangerous than smoking when it comes to your heart. It wont be long before vaping gets banned.

Really hope OP is on the WUM because only a monumental idiot who really struggled with basic common sense would be genuinely making this argument or asking this question.

It's concerning that people who are that stupid are free to roam the streets and the internet.

That study has already been debunked

The tobacco industry have a lot to lose from vaping becoming popular and there are always smear articles that come out every few months financed by them.

The only semi dangerous thing in an e-cigarette is nicotine and even that in moderation is fine.

Strip all the ingredients in a cigarette and you’ll be shocked. Just the carbon monoxide alone is horrific

Smoking is good for absolutely nothing and its time people grew up and stopped smoking. Smokers smell, have bad teeth, get extra breaks at work and cause themselves respiratory illnesses in later life. Absolute waste of time, money and health.
