63. Interesting.... I have more asthma attacks when I eat something pork-laden
or containing bleached wheat (white bread) or even to air-borne allergins than I do when I smoke (I've stopped a couple of times while pregnant and breast-feeding and far more incidents of lung issues than when I smoke).

You may actually have a point.
