The Dangers of ManBearPig

First I want to thank everyone that commented (either online or offline) on last week's posting. It is nice to get feedback.

As some of my readers know I lost my grandpa not too long ago. Well, I didn’t actually lose him. I know roughly where he is. But you know what I mean.

He lived a long life. It makes me wonder how he would have done if he hadn’t been smoking for most of it. I had this in the back of my mind when I found the following statistics….

What happens to your body if you stop smoking RIGHT NOW?

In 20 minutes:
Your blood pressure will return to normal.

In 8 hours:
The carbon monoxide levels in your blood stream will drop by half and the oxygen levels will return to normal.

In 48 hours:
Your chance of having a heart attack will begin its long decline. All nicotine will have left your body.

In 72 hours:
Your bronchial tubes will relax and your over-all energy level will rise.

In 3 – 9 months:
Coughs, wheezing, and breathing problems will dissipate as your lung capacity improves by 10 %.

In 1 year:
Your risk of having a heart attack will have now dropped by half.

In 5 year:
Your risk of having a stroke returns to that of a non-smoker.

In 10 years:
Your risk of lung cancer will have returned to that of a non-smoker.

In 15 years:
Your risk of heart attack will have returned to that of a non-smoker.

So if you are still smoking…please stop. It is not too late. I want all my readers to live a long and happy life…..even Will.

Now I know some of you just tune in to see what goofy pictures I include. So you can get your fix….here is a picture of ManBearPig…


You heard the beast….now get lost!

I love what you said about smoking. I'm going to share that with someone I love a lot who quit smoking about 2 months ago.

I've seen and heard the difference already, and this will certainly encourage him to keep up the good work.

Love the ManBearPig photo...can you do a ZebraGoatMongoose?

Thanks JB. It is nice to know that I'm making a difference...even a small one. :)
