    The judge said "EPA publicly committed to a conclusion before research had begun; excluded industry by violating the Act's procedural requirements; adjusted established procedure and scientific norms to validate the Agency's public conclusion..." In other words, it made up the results.


    i especially like that one and as for the WHO not to many people heard of its findings because it couldnt prove what they wanted, in fact it disproved it

    I quit smoking almost 16 months ago. The smell of smoke makes me physically sick. I wonder many times, how many patient's I made sick because I smelled like an ashtray? Quitting is so very hard, but so worth it!
    I live in Greensboro, N.C., and one of the hospitals where I live is banning smokeing on hospital grounds for everyone. You can't even smoke in your car. Currently they are giving smokers patches, workshops, etc. One of the people that work at this particular hospital just found out he has lung cancer. If he didn't have to quit smoking to keep his job, who knows when he would have found out. One things for sure, he wouldn't be quiting at this time.

    mercyteapot - Yep, I agree with you! I've read plenty of other studies which proves secondhand smoke increases the risk of cancer.

    froghair - No, I'm not going to do www search to site my sources... you can believe me, or not.

    thatoneguy - ... you & froghair can go hang out with the cancer stick folks during breaks, then come back all stinky just like the smokers... that will show us nonsmokers by golly. :chuckle

    For crying out loud... its a freak'n figure of speech.

    BTW, Mods we're just having a friendly discussion btwn smokers & nonsomkers, as well as btwn nonsmokers [that favor secondhand smoke ] & nonsmokers that hate everything about secondhand smoke.

    ... hate the game, not the player, or hate the smoke, not the smoker

    Mercy, honey, don't waste your time here.....

    Come back to talk on the Grownup side of the BB, and leave this alone.

    Some minds are open, a few are merely cracked, some shut.....

    .....and others are welded closed and could not be opened with blasting powder, and some C4.

    Have you ever heard the saying, "The empty wagon, makes the most noise."?

    well said.

    for me a ban on smoking would be cool. its just how we go about making it happen that concerns me. in reality this is not a issue for me. i go with what ever the majority says. reading this thread might make one think the majority is for no smoking, but currently the majority says smoking is ok. i accept that. like corvette guy said hate the smoke not the smoker, thats what it is about for me. giving crap to a smoker, yeah i do it, but only to those i know and dont take it as a attack. i still have respect for those that do take it as a attack and let them be. posting on boards always seems to go to extremes, in reality most are in the middle and give respect to everyones feelings, even if we dislike what they are doing.
    i have seen nurses complain about another nurses smoking habits to a patient. trying to get the patinet to complain about it. now thats sad.
