"Arts students were most likely to die from lung cancer or other forms of respiratory disease....

Perhaps it has something to do with all the chemicals most schools use?

this is what happens when a journalist thinks too deeply on the wrong tangent. it's like saying "we've noticed that russians tend to drink more vodka than an average american".
i miss when i was a kid, that i didn't think critically about news stories
I quit smoking nearly 2 years ago. I was a pack a day for 4-5 years. I even played on 2 soccer teams while smoking.
The funny part is when I started attending an art school, I quit smoking. Even crazier is the fact that there was a very noticeable increase in my creativity.

Dont you guys think its funny that medics were more likely to die from alcohol , suicide , accidents and violence ? That is pretty wack! I'd rather die from lung cancer .
What are you all complaining about? Everyone knows that artists are appreciated more after they're dead. Look at it this way; your work will be valued at much higher prices and sell like hotcakes.
as for me, I hope I go out in my prime and in a glorious blaze of explosions and profanity.
