Michael Douglas: Smoking After Beating Throat Cancer?

by at . Comments

Is throat-cancer survivor Michael Douglas smoking again, just months after enduring grueling treatment for the disease? Star and Radar say he is.

The photos appear in the new issue of the celebrity gossip tabloid and were allegedly taken July 21. He is shown on a yacht in Porto Venere, Italy.

The legendary actor is clearly smoking in the cover photo, and in more images inside the magazine. The question is when they were really taken.

Michael Douglas Cancer Shocker!

Michael Douglas went through chemotherapy and radiation last year, bravely beating cancer, making these new photos - if legit - even more stunning.

The oldest, easiest trick in the tabloid book is the file photo, though. Using an old or misleading image to make a cover stand out is par for the course.

We can't guarantee that's what's going on here, but we also wouldn't bet against that. It's worth noting that he was a heavy smoker prior to 2010.

There's also the possibility that he was smoking medicinal marijuana, but even that would still expose Douglas to potentially damaging side effects.

Douglas has yet to comment about the photos.

Cigarettes did NOT cause Mr. Douglas' throat cancer, so let the poor guy have a Cigarette if he wants to!

Michael's cancer was established to possiblly be caused by the HPV virus. This is not caused by smoking. Read up on the HPV virus and you may get alittle more educated before judging him. He and I have have had similair cancers, I smoke because I want to. It's my life and I am sure everyone who has responded to this has a vice. So Just leave him be. He never asked forany help going into all his treatments so he doesn't owe anyone anything or any explainations.

It has already been medically established that SMOKING is the leading cause of cancer causing death plus death related illneses such as COPD, Emphysema, lip, throat, larynx, tongue, and esophogeal
cancer, stomach cancer, colon cancer. If an individual could see the long list of poisons from chemicals that go into the making of cigerettes with the purpose of "addicting people"....people would be astonished. I am the lead speaker of "Stop Smoking 8 Day Seminars and what I learned after I overcame the habit myself was enough to make me run from eve "second-hand smokie...which causes cancer and lung problems also. I think Michael Douglas probably knew cigerettes case cancer, but being addicted is extremely difficult and I have read that cigeerettes are the leading addiction compared with all addictive drugs. Nicotine demands regular atention once one is addicted!

I saw him interview on Letterman the first week of his treatment and he claimed smoking and alcohol as the cause. My husband has exact same area and has NEVER smoked one single cig but it had HPV all over the biopsy. Smoking is just gross and deadly. I have done it so I know that anyone can quit. Just think about what it does evertime you hit on the nasty tasting garbage and that is enough to put it down. Replace it with fresh made juices! HPV or tobacco, either or, smoke will bring it back! Dont be stupid! It isnt like an opiod addiction. It can be stopped. My 80 year old dad just kicked a once 4 pack a day habit cold turkey! YOU CAN QUIT!!! or die prematurely. It is a choice! I dont believe Michael Douglas is currently smoking. He is way too smart and a father of very young children. That is either old. A joint or an electronic cig which could be what he is kicking with! I just hope anyone smoking that knows the damage has the power to quit as it is so unncecessary and affects all around you!!!! YUK!

Hey, I saw a picture of his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, smoking while pregnant. And days after watching her fortysomething mother die of lung cancer, Demi Moore was photographed walking down the street smoking a cigarette. Addiction is a tough one.

Some one has said that Cancer is the Emperor of diseases and it is. All we know is that it is an abnormal cell growth which takes away the nutriments that feed healthy cells and feeds the malignant ones instead resulting in countless deaths. Statistically speaking, people who smoke are more likely to contact this malady but to my limitied knowledge the carcinogen that prompts this condition has yet to be scientifically ascertained in Tob. or any other substance.

Maybe there is more to it than we know......maybe it is pot...maybe he doesnt have long to live.....we shouldnt assume....

Michael knows the risks involved and is addicted, Smoking is by far more difficult to kick than most other addictions. Leave the man alone.

Wow...You say that smoking had nothing to do with him getting cancer? This is the first time I have publicly called someone a name like this...You are retarded. Not the down syndrome type, but mentally retarded. Other than that, I'm speechless.

Smoking doesn't cause cancer and he is and will contract cancer again because he still has unresoved issues. I'm going to say his son's behavior because he may consider him self a failure as a parent or had bigger aspirations for his son. I'm describing stress and depression,the real cause of cancer and is really no big deal because it can be cured via self or therapy with a funny little medication we take for granted and it makes us happy. Peace out. Oh! I forgot something, in the end we all die from cancer because it is our alter-ego.Having said this,we can liver longer lives, provided we settle some issues we have been taught in "Western Cultures" Peace out.
