Former NBA player and Celebrity Rehab alumni Dennis Rodman celebrated his birthday (which was in May, oddly enough) and launch of his WB Brand Cigar line at Chateau Nightclub & Gardens in Las Vegas on Tuesday night.
Many people tend to think that cigars are somehow safer or "better" for your body than cigarettes, however, this is NOT the case!
In fact, one cigar contains as much nicotine and cancer-causing chemicals as SEVERAL cigarettes. Smoking them will only increase your risk factor for cancer of the mouth, throat, larynx, gullet (esophagus) and lung, and also increase your risk of developing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
We wish the 50-year-old a long and happy life, but don't think those cigars are helping that wish come true. Let's hope he at least made Dr. Drew proud and stayed sober!
