Also read that smoking terminates macrophages that have been corrupted and will not self-destruct. They end up becoming never-ending spike protein garbage trucks that transport it all over your body. Smoking initiates cell death for these corrupted immune cells.

I know and work with a lot of black guys here in Mass who smoke menthols. New Hampshire is getting all of that money now. Genius!

Oh wow I didn't realize that, thanks for the heads up. Still, tho, lots of blacks there.

Smoking Crack in the middle of a busy highway is literally safer than taking the Corona Jab.

In addition to the ACE reasons pedes here have pointed out, I think most smokers these days are more likely to be people that work for a living. Construction workers, garbage men, factory workers, etc. People who don't spend 18 hours a day inside starting at a computer screen. These people might have compromised lungs, but their vitamin D levels and immune system capability are far higher than the cave-dwelling liberal white-collar masses.

I had an optometrist posit the theory that smokers lungs are too damaged for the China Virus to find a home. Our lungs are tough and scarred, not soft & tender like the virus needs to replicate.

I have to believe it is somewhat true. This virus should have killed every smoker across the world, yet it didn't.

It's because COVID-19 is the world's first cardiovascular disease transmitted through respiratory symptoms.

From my understanding smoking decrease ace receptors in the lungs which the virus uses to attach to cells and gain entry.

According to the recent data, placebos were more effective as well.

Dude I saw amateur biologist youtubers saying this was sars slapper with HIV 2s receptor white and that it targeted smokers less about 16 months ago (when this shit was first starting.) This isn't fucking news. They speculated it's something with ace2 and asians bc it was a bioweapon designed against the west. I forget.

Nicotine is the key. You can just use Nicotine gum or lozenges.

Or add a pinch of tobaccy into your joints. Just buy the good stuff.

Do like the Indians did and put some tobacco in your peace pipe!
