News regarding the effects of smoking bans.

Bans on smoking in public places really do work at reducing heart attacks from secondhand smoke, a major study finds. Smoke-free policies can reduce the risk of heart attack by up to 47 percent and significantly reduce the likelihood of other heart problems, according to a report released Thursday by the U.S. Institute of Medicine (IOM). The report also found compelling evidence that even a brief exposure to secondhand smoke can trigger a heart attack. “We did conclude a cause-and-effect relationship exists between heart disease and secondhand smoke exposure,” Dr. Lynn R. Goldman, chairwoman of the IOM committee, said during a press conference Thursday. – From US News & World Report

    Smoking bans are based on lies, and if people take just a few minutes to honestly read some of the studies and the criticisms of the studies that the ban proposal is based on it might make a big difference. To see just how these nonsense statistics supporting bans get made up and WHY they get made up just check these three links:

    shows how researchers promise the “right” kind of answers for grants before even doing the research and how they juggle the numbers to create the promised “right answers.” Be sure to read the “aftercomments” to the Grier article: that is where the strongest documented criticisms are. And:

    dissects the grandfather of these studies, the “Helena Heart Miracle.” Read “100 Days,” and way down near the bottom “Independently Confirmed??” where you’ll see how the “evidence” of what they did was almost wiped from the Internet. If the “little studies” are trash, then the “big combining study” is also trash.

  • The Myth of the Smoking Ban ‘Miracle’ Restrictions on smoking around the world are claimed to have had a dramatic effect on heart attack rates. It’s not true. http://www.spiked-online.com/index.php/site/article/7451/

    As for secondhand smoke in the air, OSHA has stated outright that: “Field studies of environmental tobacco smoke indicate that under normal conditions, the components in tobacco smoke are diluted below existing Permissible Exposure Levels (PELS.) as referenced in the Air Contaminant Standard (29 CFR 1910.1000)…It would be very rare to find a workplace with so much smoking that any individual PEL would be exceeded.” -Letter From Greg Watchman, Acting Sec’y, OSHA, To Leroy J Pletten, PHD, July 8, 1997
