No, it's not misguided, it's absolutely spot on. This is why you should hold a baby in front of your face when you go to Farm Foods, as all the viruses in the atmosphere will steer towards the baby's lungs leaving your old, blackened, tarred-up windpipes alone.As a smoker for over 50 years, the reports that the CV-19 virus can attack lungs, obviously worried me.
But then I had the idea - if the virus likes to infest lungs, then wouldn't the best lungs for it, be the pristine, luscious, healthy, pink, lungs possessed by a non-smoker? Such lungs would seem to offer a hugely fertile field for the virus to gleefully enter and exploit.
Whereas, the old, scarred, blackened, withered lungs of a long-time smoker might be less attractive to the virus.
So it would sneer in contempt, and go away to look for the more accommodating lungs found in non-smokers.
This idea has been of some comfort, when I light up. Is it misguided?
