Apart from being annoying, these anti-smoking TV commercials are flat out bullshit

    1 in 5 of ALL deaths in the U.S. Are smoking related???? .... 20% of everyone that dies in America did so as a direct result of cigarettes!!??..... Nonsense !!

    I dislike second hand smoke as much as the next guy, but those figures are absolute, unmitigated horseshit ...

    Why yank everyone's chain just to get your point across??

    Too bad they offer evidence and you just offer opinion.

    If that is the case why is it that I've never known a non-smoker who died of a smoke related illness? I'm almost 40. Shouldn't I have seen it at least once by now?

    If you LIVE with a smoker, or work in a 'smoking' environment, then possibly .... But MOST don't.... There is ZERO chance that 1 out of every 5 deaths can be attributed to smoking tobacco products ...Z-E-R-O

    These commercials imply you'll drop dead after one puff. My grandpa smokes unfiltered Kings for 50+ years. He died of pneumonia.
