1 doctor agrees

In brief: "side effects???"

I don;t think I would consider chronic bronchitis and emphysema (COPD), being unable to get enough oxygen and going into heart failure, developing arteriosclerosis and having heart attack or stroke, or getting any of large number of cancers (mostly lung, head and neck, but many others) to be "side effects.
" They are the complications of using a poisonous substance over time. And there are more.
