Researchers at 'Action on Smoking and Health' have reported that a 30-year-old smoker can expect to live about 35 more years, whereas a 30-year-old non-smoker can expect to live 53 more years. In addition, the children of a parent or parents who smoke may be at risk from the genetic damage done to the parent before conception (because of their previous smoking), the direct effects to them in the womb, and the passive smoke they are exposed to after they are born.

The top ten EDM DJ's list The Chainsmokers as #9. They don't remember why they are so called, although it had something to do with actor Hugh Grant. #7 is 40 year old Steve Aoki, son of Rocky (Benihana), a Japanese-American.
Half are from Europe, and #1 is Martin Garrix from the Netherlands (three in the top ten are also Dutch). All white, all male. I should mention that Marshmello, an American, is #3, and he is anonymous, although he is 25 and named Chris Comstock:
