TRUTH !!
Many smoking opponents are outraged when it is claimed that smoking may
actually have some health benefits, but the data are pretty clear that
smoking helps to prevent many neurological diseases. No one seems to know
why, but it may be due to the fact that nicotine stimulates brain activity.
There are even some cancers, such as endometrial cancer and some skin
cancers, that are rarer in smokers than non-smokers. The increased risk of
respiratory diseases and heart disease far outweighs the benefits, however,
and it would be foolish to pretend that smoking is good for you.

* Each jar was associated with the four sons of Horus and had its own
guardian deity. The jar of Duamutef, the jackal, contained the stomach.
Qebehseneuf, the falcon, held the intestines. The lungs were placed in the
jar of Hapi, the baboon, and Imseti, the human, guarded the liver.
