We all know that smoking is bad for us – for obvious reasons, too. Time and time again, it has been linked to cancer, among other things. I recently read smoking hurts vision. Ya, smoking might be causes of cancer, lung disease, cough etc. but vison...

@loungfrank,
Smoking is good for you, for many reasons, too.
And sometimes, being vision-impaired, is beneficial.

@mark noble,
has your intelligence impairment hurt you much ? I hear thats a benefit of smoking also.

Well, from your idiotic posts, its apparent you wouldnt need much more than a ganglion to take care of all the "thinking" you do.

If you smoke:

You are twice as likely to develop macular degeneration compared with a nonsmoker.

You are two to three times more likely to develop cataracts compared with a nonsmoker.


the relationship to macular degeneration has been known for at least 15 years (when I first did some reading about it)

@farmerman,
The lung-tar, acquired by smoking, prevents microbes/bacterium/viruses from entering the blood-system.
I last saw a GP in 1982-83.
Back to your rocks, sir.

@loungfrank,
You're claiming to be a medical student from Harvard University.

You should be already aware of hundreds of reference points provided by your institution of learning. Libraries, teacher's assistants, professors, peer tutoring, fellow students, Lexis Nexis (and other university based subscriptions), etc....

@farmerman,
I plain old loved to smoke. Glad I stopped. That was in '82, when the ocean was blue (and relative to now, cleaner.)

Negs on it have been known for a long time, including the tie-in re macular degeneration, as ehBeth noted.

@loungfrank,
Not as well known are the detrimental effects that smoking can have on your vision. Smoking has been directly linked to two of the leading causes of vision loss, cataracts and macular degeneration. In fact, researchers believe smoking also causes or contributes to a number of other eye health problems.May 4, 2010

@ossobucotemp,
It was covered in journals in at least 2000 , if not earlier.

I was doing a lot of reading on the subject back then.

@ehBeth,
Have you considered the positive effects of tobacco-inhalation?
Knowing that causality predetermines equal positive and negative processes resulting thereof/at, in lieu of 'said'.

@ehBeth,
I didn't know that smoking affected our eyesight. I quit cigarette smoking in my early thirties, but picked up smoking cigars when my buddy and I visited Cuba last few years.
Since I don't think I'll be traveling to Cuba, I can quit smoking all together.
