The National Institutes of Health go on and on about how smoking is bad for humans. Although it might be logically deduced that smoking is also bad for gnomes, there have been no scientific studies to prove it.
One of the largest gnome “producers”, Kimmel, boasts of many gnome species smoking pipes.
Underground trance artist, Wild Wild Chris, even has a song called Gnomes and Pipes.
If the results show minimal health risks, then by all means…..smoke up! However, if the results are truly negative, I will direct my next study to reasonable alternatives to pipe use.
