[QUOTE=financeguy;7250846]The Independent Review Tuesday 16 November 2004




"The willingness of militant anti-smokers to corrupt a good case has turned the smoking debate from a laudable campaign to improve public health into a bitterly resented attack on the minority who choose to risk smoking. One medical researcher says: "Statistically the evidence for the evils of smoking has been grossly distorted. For many people the ideal of a complete end to smoking has become a sort of Holy Grail with a limited basis in fact. More of us would say this, but it is politically unacceptable to speak the truth about these things." He suggests that rabid anti-smokers should look at the prevailing rates of smoking among young people born after the relationship between smoking and cancer was admitted by the tobacco industry - and remind themselves what happened to the boy who cried wolf."



It continues:

Ban smoking in cars - and go further than that | News


So, I guess spending fifteen minutes in a closed garage with an automobile
on idle is safer than fifteen minutes in a closed garage with me smoking a Lucky Strike.
