The forbidden way to boost your brainpower

A word from my favorite doctor:

But again, this is no surprise. Nicotine — SMOKING — has been proven to boost the parts of the brain linked to memory and concentration even in people not at risk for dementia.

    "Johnny? What's this? I see you had a C-minus on your multiplication tables test yesterday! Have you been notsmoking again? I thought we had a talk about that! I'm going to have to see your guidance counselor"

  4. That would perhaps explain why the anti-smoking fanatics are such brain-dead joyless bastards.

    When the UK smoking ban was being mooted, I remember reading in the letters pages of the Daily Telegraph a letter from a chap who was a lifelong never-smoker, but who was pissed off about the ban on flights. He said he used to travel a lot on business, and always sat at the back of the plane with the smokers because, he said, they were much more interesting and more fun than the non-smokers at the front. It made for a much better flight.

    Of course nicotine has its benefits. Why the hell would people smoke tobacco otherwise? There would be absolutely no point. And that's what the antis totally fail to understand.

  5. WADA, the World anti doping agency, has recently expressed concern about the high proportion of sportsmen in certain sports who use oral tobacco products. WADA thinks that these products may possibly be performance enhancing by, among other things, aiding concentration.

    "WADA thinks that these products may possibly be performance enhancing by, among other things, aiding concentration."

    I do remember reading about this recently. If WADA aims to remain consistent, then they will have to "express concern" over the drinking of coffee as well. The funny thing is that they're inadvertently acknowledging that nicotine use carries with it health benefits!! Ironic:-)

  10. "Nicotine “exhibits a variety of pharmacological properties sought-after by consumers,” and it “results in vigilance and cognitive function enhancement together with relaxation, reduced stress, mood modulation and lower body weight.”"

    ..and what do doctors all over the lower continental 48 (and abroad) so often say to their patients:

    1) Find ways to relax
    2) Reduce your stress
    3) Stay healthy by lowering (or maintaining) your body weight.

    WADA is opposed to a healthy and happy lifestyle. Everyone must be under control and everyone must be miserable.

    Boo hiss to these people:(
