    There is no safe level of tobacco consumption and none of the things he was looking was demanded by a robber with a gun.

    Also the items he is asking for only affects himself while tobacco can affect others.

    Keith, can’t believe your being sarcastic about CVS not selling tobacco products.

    Care to cite that study? No? Could it be because the study combined an extremely limited scope of effects, (lung cancer only), with a diluted sample of second-hand smoke exposure, (that result was for all but the most trivial exposure).

    It’s almost like they did a more general study then cherry picked an outlier.

    @Rick Pikul

    Pretty much this.

    There was recently a study that showed the stink and fumes from a smoker’s clothing can have detrimental health effects. I highly doubt any legitimate study that showed second-hand smoke as “safe”…

    ^Exactly! There is no such thing as secondhand or even third hand junk food.

    To begin with you make the same “cancer is the only thing to think about” error. When SHS also causes SIDS, lung function deficiencies from prenatal exposure, heart disease, etc. Then you compound it by ignoring over two decades of continued work on the issue.

    IOW: Even if we can ignore everything before EPA93, there is a ton of stuff that came after it. That you focus on 20 year old work implies that you, (or, more likely, the professional denialists you are parroting), can’t scare up issues with things like the 2006 Surgeon General’s report.

    That you, personally, did not have any noticeable adverse effects is no more proof of safety than not being wounded when someone shoots up your house with a machine gun is proof that bullets are harmless.
