    :shock: Looks like I will have a higher chance of early menopause all thanks to my dad!

    We get sent this sort of thing at work, but I thought this one was particularly interesting...

    Just goes to show its not just lung damage that smoking can cause, it affects everything, even generations down the line.

    Not meant to cause upset/anger btw, just posting as its food for thought. And i guess if it helps 1 daddy to be quit, then that's a good thing!
