Yeah but smoking is always a choice. Obesity in some rare cases isn't. People don't like taking the chance of saying they're all fat by choice.

Obesity is worse than smoking though.

but second-hand obesity doesn't effect anybody, but second-hand smoking does

No, it doesn't.

It's actually been proven that this notion is false, and that second-hand smoking isn't remotely dangerous.

Sources? I'm sure I'll need to defend this argument in the future.

first hand experience.

i was born in europe and everyone there smokes. my great grandfather smoked for his entire life, he died at 86. He also was an alcoholic to some point and drank basically everyday. Kids there start smoking at age 10 or lower. You can usually buy alcohol and cigs at the store without any ID or reason. Not only that, but people also make it themselves. My great grandfather created his own alcohol maker and would pick up rotten fruits and put them over a hot fire until the fluid leaked through a tube to create the alcohol. Wine is considered to be healthy and people consume it everyday. In france, even moreso. But we drink all different kinds of alcohol, from beer, vodka, cognac, etc.

Oh right, where talking about smoking. So smoking itself isnt really that dangerous compared to other things. Being obese is a lot more unhealthy than smoking is in my opinion.

Mind you, I am saying this as a non-smoker, with 2 parents who ARE smokers, and a chunk of my friends that smoke. It isn't dangerous, and even the ******* initial testing done that supposedly "proved it was dangerous and increased risk of lung cancer" actually states that it didn't increase the chance for children, and the results for adults were inconclusive.
