my Momma never smoked, but she died of lung cancer. The add is a second hand smoke commercial. It's also BS. She may have died from lung cancer, but was it from factory emissions, car exhaust, or one of the many other pollutants found in the air? The studies that blame second hand smoke are not capable of withstanding even minor scrutiny with regard to their methodology.
Some one please explain why the lung cancer rate in smokers and non-smokers is so close!

this is a pretty good article on how statistics are used in the non smoking campaign.It also has many obvious flaws, but its entertaining in an pro-smoking and anti-control kind of way. But basically,even it says that smoking white american male has a one in twelve chance of dying from lung cancer, while a non smoking white american males has only a one in one hundred chance. I kind of like the gambling odds on the non smoking guy myself. :thumbsup


But thats no guarantee it applies to a non smoking canadian female :thud
