    Many people develop cancers and have never smoked a day in their life.

    If you smoke only once a year, your chances of developing cancer due to smoking are about one million to one.

    Cancer is many diseases, and is really very common. Smoking greatly increases the risk of some cancers, but not smoking (or smoking and then quitting) does not guarantee that you'll never get cancer.

    Not sure though what the point is of smoking once a year? Are you an actor in a play where you have to pretend to smoke?

    No safe level of smoking has ever been established so there is no way to answer this other than persinal opinion.

    Smoking increases the risk of many different types of cancer.

    The more you smoke the bigger the risk.

    Smoking only one cigarette a year will not be the cause of cancer or emphysema, however these diseases can present themselves without provocation (more commonly cancer) due to pollution, diet, genetics, deficiencies, etc. To sum it up, no; one cigarette a year will not cause these things. If they do appear, it will not be because of the smoking. Heavy or consistent smoking, on the other hand, would increase the risk significantly.

    Probably not. Once a year shouldn't hurt you. Not sure why you'd want to, though.

    Just living in a city means that you are likely sucking in way more pollution every day than one cigarette. Poisons, and things like smoking aren't really about all or none, it's about how much and how often. Smoking one cigarette a year is not that harmful, but that seems pretty unlikely to ever happen.
