With sustained never smokers as reference, the sustained smokers of a pipe

survival, no difference was found between sustained smokers of a pipe
only and of cigarettes only. Men who switched from cigarettes only to
pipe only had a risk which was not significantly different from the
risk in sustained smokers of cigarettes only.

Conclusions Between pipe and cigarette smokers, no or only minor
differences were found in mortality from any cause and the specified
smoking-related diseases. Pipe smoking is not safer than cigarette
smoking.

I've traded words with Colby. Is he dead? What did he die of?

You've referenced the BIBLE of smokers' rationalizations.

REAL story?

It might read that way to an addict.
