This article almost makes it look like tobacco is healthy. It needs a look. DanH 21:54, 15 April 2007 (EDT)

I removed "But recently it has also been discovered to have some positive health benefits, including a reduced risk of Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease and a reduced risk of Kaposi's sarcoma." from the introduction. It is fine to mention this in the nicotine section (although a link to a citation should be given there), but this is not widely accepted enough to be placed in the introduction. --PhineasBogg 23:34, 28 December 2007 (EST)

I updated the information on the connection between smoking and Alzheimer's Disease and added a reference. --PhineasBogg 23:45, 28 December 2007 (EST)

I added a link to a study on Kaposi's Sarcoma. I have temporarily removed the information about breast cancer in the the Nicotine section, since it seems to be contradicted by the following study http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/cgi-bin/abstract/107630598/ABSTRACT. --PhineasBogg 00:00, 29 December 2007 (EST)

DanH, thank you for the welcome message. Please let me know if you want to discuss any of my edits on the talk page. Since I was citing references for the things I added, and only removing things that were unreferences and contradicted by references, I assumed my changes were not controversial, but if you feel they are I would be happy to discuss. Thanks! --PhineasBogg 00:12, 29 December 2007 (EST)

I've only had a quick glance at your edits, but they appear to me to be quite reasonable. If anything, you're going a bit overboard with the explanations on this talk page! (Your second post to this talk page, for example.) That's not to say that you shouldn't explain yourself here, but often the edit comment is sufficient. Thanks for your efforts. Philip J.

Terms like recreational and high

Can we describe tobacco in terms other than "recreational properties" and "euphoric high"? The latter term makes it sound like drugs, and the former makes drug abuse sound normal. --Ed Poor Talk 11:44, 26 July 2010 (EDT)
