logic goes out the window

"We start dying from the day we are born."

 

      I had a guy on Quora say that in defense of having a couple cigarettes a day.

 

      Someone asked if a couple cigarettes a day were bad for you and I explained one cigarette can cause a heart attack or stroke and that your risks for both are substantially increased by smoking one or two a day.

 

      This guy says it isn't so and I tell him to google it and get back to me.

While he was doing this, I found at least 6 links backing up what I said. (these are 2018 articles based upon new studies.)

 

      He comes back with (only) one of the links and says "It only mentions one cigarette can cause a stroke in the title."  I tell him he needs to go to all the links I found and tell them they are wrong.

 

Then he comes back with this

 

"We start dying from the day we are born"

 

He doesn't understand
