People do not get cancer from perfume, there are no long term illnesses that perfume causes to anyone who inhales it. Inhaling cigarette smoke is bad for ANY LUNG of ANY PERSON. I'm not sure if you are really that dim or if you are kidding! Seriously, you think nobody got cancer from inhaling cigarette smoke back then?! Hey screw it lets go back to the good old days when you could light up in hospitals! Let's start giving kids coca cola in their baby bottles! Let's go tanning with some baby oil all day long! PEOPLE DID STUPID THINGS BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T KNOW BETTER AND INFORMATION WASN'T WIDELY AVAILABLE. Now we do. People wised up, research got better and the rules were put in place because people were getting sick and people were dying.
