BHH-2: Using Tobacco

This is common sense now that everyone knows the harmful effects of using tobacco.

However, when he supposedly introduced tobacco to England in 1586,  Sir Walter Raleigh had no idea that he would turn out the culprit of a stubborn worldly health problem which has been haunting millions of people over the past 430 years.

In a complete list of cancer-causing materials published most recently by UN-WHO, tobacco smoke (second hand), tobacco smoking, and tobacco (smokeless) are ranked respectively number 107, 108 and 109.

Since the bad effects of using tobacco are well documented and commonly recognised, it is unnecessary to go any further than just mention here that tobacco smoking is one of the worst habits in terms of yangsheng.

A serious yangsheng practitioner would resolutely give up smoking, or never use tobacco to begin with.
