Just looked it up, he died from Cardiac Arrest, I would've guessed lung cancer!

If you look for old magazine ads you'll find every celebrity and sports figure promoting smoking. There was even an ad touting the number of doctors who prefered their brand. The ads said that smoking was healthy because it made you breathe deep!

Hey, found this on the internet:


Quote:

"Another Reason Not To Smoke: Sudden Cardiac Death. A recent study found even light to moderate smoking (one to 12 cigarettes a day) can increase the risk in women of sudden cardiac death. SCD causes about 325,000 adult deaths in the U.S., and is responsible for half of all heart disease deaths."



Sounds like it can kill very much faster than Lung cancer, which takes decades to develope.

Just sortin'....

My Uncle Mike was a Dentist..he smoked and DRANK,but when he was sent a carton of Kents he tossed them in the trash rather than endorse. Wait, do these generation X and so types even remember Kent cigarettes ?

Cigarette advertising was prevalent up to the late 1960s in all forms: radio, television, movies, magazines, billboards, candy, you name it. Plenty of celebrities, sports personalities and other notables got paid fees for promoting the product.

The radio show "Dragnet" (forerunner of the TV show) was sponsored by Chesterfield. Jack Webb, the star of the radio show too, plugged the brand. Lucky Strike sponsored the Jack Benny Program ("LSMFT"). Don't forget "Johnny", and his "Call for Philip Morris!"

Fatima sponsored Dragnet too. I like to listen to old time radio and some cigarettes claimed health benefits over others too.

Ah, but Santa recommends the clean refreshing taste of Lucky Strike.

Not the least because you'll get lucky if you give Luckies.
