You CAN get lung cancer without smoking.
You CAN get diabetes while eating awesome and being a gym rat.

You canNOT (accidentally) get pregnant without having sex.

There's also a much shorter timeline between having sex and getting pregnant than there is between smoking and getting lung cancer, eating poorly/not exercising and becoming diabetic. Pregnancy literally happens overnight.
