To be fair that logic could be applied to just about anything. It's quite possible for some chain-smokers to live into their 90s but that doesn't negate the scientific evidence showing the effect smoking can have on our bodies.
Almost everything we put into our bodies has the potential to cause harm but certain things are scientifically proven to be more likely to cause changes/damage.
I was a huge consumer of dairy for many years and will openly admit that I find the taste of dairy to be delicious.
However, I didn't realize how much of a role it played in my health until I cut it out.
