The Science Is Settled Scuttled

According to the CDC “second hand smoke” causes “an estimated 3,400 lung cancer deaths per year.”

In this age of politiczed science and ideological-blinder driven research, we now know that “3,400 deaths” is Nanny State for, well, um “zero” actually

The article describes a large prospective study that “confirmed a strong association between cigarette smoking and lung cancer but found no link between the disease and secondhand smoke.” The study tracked more than 76,000 women, 901 of whom eventually developed lung cancer. Although “the incidence of lung cancer was 13 times higher in current smokers and four times higher in former smokers than in never-smokers,” says the JNCI article, there was no statistically significant association between reported exposure to secondhand smoke and subsequent development of lung cancer.

It’s all about control.

    After seeing first hand, what ludicrously false data was and continues to be produced by the environmental wing of science, I have grown doubtful of almost anything that comes out of the science community. If their continued funding is dependent on a certain set of pre-determined conclusions, guess what? Same goes with medical findings. Money and politics drives all.

    I’ve been telling people they were lying for decades now. No one takes my word for it. I always ask them to name one person who died from second hand smoke. They’ve yet to do that.

    The Left Lives on Lies.

    People are surprised when I don’t complain, and just move upwind of smokers. Then I tell them I grew up with second hand smoke …. Dad was a 4 pack a day smoker.

    They are further bothered when I tell ‘me that they shouldn’t worry either. It goes against their indoctrination, you see.

    This news comes too late for e-cigs, now banned indoors in NYC, apparently so people aren’t exposed to second-hand “other people live differently than I do”.

    I’m still waiting for a study measuring the harm caused by exposure to the first-hand smugness of our self-chosen elites. Maybe we should ban that and bask in the newfound mental health of a grateful nation.
