How is Italy #5, when every second person is smoking a cigarette? http://www.worldlifeexpectancy.com/world-life-expectancy-map

I don't smoke. :D ‎· did

Neither do I, and most of my friends don't. And just two persons in my family do. ‎· MayaBastanza

I don't as well, nor any of my family (which is quite big). ‎· Haukr

Plus, we live longer thanks to our great food :) (San Marino is also *inside* Italy, and it's third!) ‎· MayaBastanza

I don't as well: all my family (4 people) is no-smoking ‎· tokyoblues

The other half is chugging "healthy plant oils" and live to be, like, 150. ‎· Eivind

Actually only 20% of Italians are smokers. That's below the European average ‎· Selkis
Comment
@selkis: Pretty sure Japan is a big smoker, though, and they're winning. Sushi, hard liquor and cigarettes will keep you alive. ‎· Eivind

@eivind: And genetics. I think you have to consider A LOT of variables. ‎· Selkis

bad food kills more than smoke ‎· sapu

@selkis: *grumbles* ‎· Eivind

Genetics play a role, for sure. Food of course either. As for smoke I think we can agree that smoking kills those who were meant to be killed by smoke (genetics, once more), but not all of them are actually smokers. ‎· sooshee
Comment
@sooshee For example, if you're burned at the stake technically you're killed by smoke, even if you've never been a smoker. ‎· Selkis
Comment
@selkis that's quite a good point. ‎· sooshee

too many taxes in italy on cigarets to be a smoker. ‎· tøzzïllæ

Maybe just Florence? Could be they are all tourists. ‎· Ken Morley

life expectancy is dominated by cardio circulatory diseases, my guess is that good climate, good food and a quite good healthcare offset every damage done by smoking ‎· dasnake
Comment
(according to this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_cigarette_... italy is a factor 1.4x more than US) ‎· dasnake
Comment
I don't smoke, but I was told to smoke, eat, and drink what I like, they said me that speaking english is apparently what kills people. ‎· StefanoHBS nucleare

To be fair, it was mainly Rome and Florence. Much less noticeable in the other cities we've visited. ‎· Ken Morley
