We have all heard the reasons why people should not smoke; lung and mouth and throat cancers, heart problems, prematurely aged skin, smelly clothes and hair, difficulty in finding a date, etc. But here is a new reason to consider.
One particular brand of cigarettes sold in Indonesia has a tendency to explode in your mouth. One man lost six teeth.
Wow! You really must want to smoke cigarettes to put up with that! The story is entitled Smoker loses six teeth when cigarette explodes in his mouth . I hope he stopped smoking.
He was riding his motorcycle to work when the butt he was dragging upon decided to violently remove about a fourth of his dental capacity. I think he should seriously consider becoming a non-smoker. You can bet that he was a non-eater for a while.
