Tobacco free is safer, IMO.

depends on how much junk food and how much tobacco?

I'm a nonsmoker but I never eat junkfood.

But if I had to decide - everything is better than junkfood *shudder*

lol at you americans who think junk food vegan is the healthier option

Way-to-be brainwashed by your government for a easy scapegoat

my boyfriend's grandparents (German) are in their 90s and they *just* quit smoking this year - I quit smoking this year too

sure tobacco is an unhealthy vice but it won't destroy your biome like undernurioushment and dead food

This was actually included in a presentation I did for college. Maybe not for all “health”, but for cardiovascular health, studies show you are less likely to develop heart disease on a non-junk vegan diet even if you smoke.

I mean “”organic”” tobacco is kind of a myth since modern tobacco is VERY diluted with various fillers. If you were smoking the genuine pure organic tobacco you’d be knocking yourself off your ass on a nicotine high every time you smoked.

People always look at me when I say I’m vegan for health reasons and then light a cigarette.
It kind of contradicts itself. Don’t you think?

"junk food vegans" rely so heavily on fried potatoes (which form more acrylamide than literally anything else ever.) Most of the other food they eat is just as pro-oxidative as what the average omni eats. They are usually just as unbalanced in their nutrient intake as SAD omnivores.
Raw vegans, regardless of tobacco, are likely eating mostly plants with exceptional antioxidant and nutritive profiles. Smoking is still raising their risk of COPD, bronchitis and lung cancer, but overall they will still have better blood work (nutrients, cholesterol, blood glucose, liver/kidney function,) than junk food vegans.

Honestly, as long as the tobacco doesn't have any added chemicals (most tobacco brands do), eating raw vegan will, like purson said, give a person better blood work.

But, if you're burning the tobacco as you inhale it... then technically wouldn't that disqualify you as being a raw vegan? Apparently the use of beeswax and castoreum(something from a beaver butt) are commonly used...not to mention that most cigarettes are tested on animals, would make smoking not vegan at all imho.
