  1. Well, Abe Lincoln said everything on the internet is true, esp if it’s a meme… HOWEVER… The Wizard of Oz was released in 1939. Asbestos wasn’t declared a health hazard until the 1970 Clean Air Act. Likewise, 80 cigarettes a day works out to 5 per every waking hour, assuming a 16 hour day & 8 hours of sleep. She’d also have a voice of pure gravel. O_O

    1. Lol! I too think the 80 sounds ridiculous but I checked several sources and all said same thing. All could be reporting from same source and could be wrong. I don’t think there’s any way to ever really know. But agree it sounds like an excessive estimate.
      No asbestos wasn’t declared a health hazard officially until then but a link between asbestos and cancer was discovered in 1934.
      Maybe the wording should have been different on that particular meme.
