        neither are good for you. but neither, unless used to an extreme, will kill you.
        80yr old welders are all around. so are 80yr old smokers. don't fall into the "anti-smoker" propaganda trap. they are just trying to get you to do what they want you to do.

          how many welders over 70 do you know??? welding fumes destroys your kidneys, spleen, lungs. Fumes are toxic and your body will work to remove these toxins, read the respirater post eh..

              Smoking seems to aggravate anything else concerning your lungs. I would contact the American Lung Association for information to use in a project.

                      Adding tar to the lungs might cause some substances in the air that would otherwise not stick to attach themselves to the other compounds present. I'm no chemist, but I would think you'd want to prevent reactions between nasty particles from happening inside your body. Your body is good at cleansing itself of impurities, but when you put a protective barrier between that function and the harmful substance, it doesn't work so well and might lead to other complications down the road.

                      The proof of this is that your body immediately starts removing all that crap you stick to your lungs via smoking, and you can recover from being a smoker.

                        I'm going to have to agree and say smoking and welding fumes cant be good. Both my grandfathers were welders and mechanics in world war II, both smokers, and both died in their early seventies. One had cancer, probably from the asbestos he was around after the war when he became a pipe fitter, but the doctor told him generally smokers have it worse as they take in all the other crap deeper than most people who don't smoke.

                          my Father welded most of his life and got sick and died from lung cancer all in abought 6 months. went from being perfickly ok to one day can't catch his breath to dead in 6 months "welding fumes" I watched my father go threw a long and very painfull death. I would not wish that off on anyone.
                          during his last few days, he told me he wished I would not pick up the lead and weld anything. sorry but I do weld but as a hobby, I have all this Miller welding equipment. I cant help it
                          by the way he bearly lived to see his 69th Birthday
                          I love and miss him
                          my father could realy burn a rod !

                            my boss actually has his hood adjusted so a cigarette will fit under it when he lifts it more smoke rises from behind it that in front! i wear a resperator as much as i can i am almost 30 yrs old, i don't wish to breathe like my boss (gurgling, wheesing, and always hacking) when i'm 55! your lungs need to last a lifetime, no sence in abusing them!
