Smoking Your Way to Good Health

I’ve published a few articles here about the health benefits of beer. It’s a good idea to have that arrow in your quiver of rebuttals when someone comes across with attitude about drinking beer. But I never thought I’d be able to write about the health benefits of cigar smoking.

Believe it or not, there are some health benefits to tobacco use, as set forth in an article published today on Cigar Advisor.  Incredibly, tobacco use can be healthy for your heart.

Read the article for some context. A pack a day smoker is going to suffer far more health detriment than improvement. But limited infusion of tobacco, say like you get from an occasional cigar, can improve your health.

So, the next time you light up and get grief from someone in the area about the smoke, just say, “Sorry, Doctor’s orders.”
