how much nasty stuff HE puts on/in HIS food is HIS choice....see the difference here.
about sitting in the non smoking section....yeah, cause that works....
for the record again, i voted for the ban cause of the inconvenience of me having to smell smoke in restaurants but i wish i had not.....i do agree
that i could sit further away cause this has opened a door but i do not wish i had not so people could smoke up.....
all these things you and others mention are great...i put toxins into my body too. thing is, it's my choice..
anyway, keep on rolling your own people.....
Hand-rolled cigarettes more carcinogenic: study
While smokers of hand-rolled cigarettes "consumed (fewer) cigarettes, and statistically had fewer years of smoking, hand-rolled cigarettes were more
carcinogenic, resulting in a higher incidence of lung cancer development," the study by Heidi Rolke, of Norway's Sorlandet Hospital, said.
good luck with the leukaplekia
check out the smoke wafting through the restaurant.....so yeah, so much for a non smoking section
Passive smoking (also known as secondhand smoking, involuntary smoking, exposure to environmental tobacco smoke, or ETS exposure) occurs when smoke
from one person's burning tobacco product (or the smoke exhaled by the smoker) is inhaled by others. Current scientific evidence shows that exposure
to secondhand tobacco smoke causes death, disease and disability
Research has generated scientific evidence that secondhand smoke (i.e. in case of cigarette, a mixture of smoke released from the smoldering end of
the cigarette and smoke exhaled by the smoker) causes the same problems as direct smoking, including heart disease, cardiovascular disease, lung
cancer, and lung ailments such as COPD, bronchitis and asthma. Specifically, meta-analyses have shown lifelong non-smokers with partners who smoke
in the home have a 20–30% greater risk of lung cancer, and those exposed to cigarette smoke in the workplace have an increased risk of 16–19%
Persons with asthma can experience attacks brought on by passive smoking whether they are adults or children
Tobacco smoke is an irritant, and allergy sufferers can experience stuffy or runny noses, watery or burning eyes, sneezing, coughing, wheezing, a
feeling of suffocation, and other typical allergy symptoms within minutes of exposure. Some people with no known allergies and without asthma may
cough in smoke-filled rooms, get headaches, feel nauseated, feel sleepy, and experience other ill effects, when they would not normally exhibit these
symptoms without the presence of smoke
...Epidemiological studies show that non-smokers exposed to secondhand smoke are at risk for many of the health problems associated with direct
In 1992, the Journal of the American Medical Association published a review
of the available evidence regarding the relationship between
secondhand smoke and heart disease, and estimated that passive smoking was responsible for 35,000 to 40,000 deaths per year in the United States in
the early 1980s
The International Agency for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization concluded in 2002 that
There is sufficient evidence that involuntary smoking (exposure to secondhand or 'environmental' tobacco smoke) causes lung cancer in humans.
Involuntary smoking (exposure to secondhand or 'environmental' tobacco smoke) is carcinogenic to humans (Group 1)
In May 2006, the United States Centers for Disease Control issued its first new study on secondhand smoke in 20 years. Surgeon General Richard Carmona
The health effects of secondhand smoke exposure are more pervasive than we previously thought. The scientific evidence is now indisputable:
secondhand smoke is not a mere annoyance. It is a serious health hazard that can lead to disease and premature death in children and nonsmoking
so yeah, keep justifying it
