Another good reason not to allow anyone to smoke around children. Sad to say most selfish selfcentered smokers will ignore facts, an go on smoking around kids.

Do you fanatics ever grow tired of your exaggerations and outright propaganda?

Grilling meat does the same thing...so when will you jump on the grilled meat ban movement?

From the article: "A unique finding of this study is the novel evidence for a BP-raising effect of environmental nicotine exposure in children as young as 4 to 5 years of age. The effect of passive smoking remained significant when we corrected for all other relevant child- and parent-related risk factors and prenatal circumstances."

Children should not be exposed to the risks of SHS.

Yea...and they shouldn't be fed hotdogs/bacon/sausage either.

It gives a new meaning to the phrase "meat is murder": a study of more than half a million Americans has found that consuming steaks, hot dogs and other red and processed meats significantly increased participants' chances of dying during the decade in which they were tracked.

Women who consumed the most red meat 66 grams (2.3 ounces) per 1000 calories were roughly 36% more likely to die than women who ate the least red meat 9.1 grams (0.3 ounces). For men, a similar difference in red meat consumption, upped death rates by 31%.

Oh..and pan frying a steak raises blood pressure as well, so might we find you on some Vegan blog hammering the meat addicts?

What kind of person would willingly and knowingly consume and feed their children things that are known to cause cancer, and then hammer others lifestyle choices they find unhealthy?

That would take quite the hypocrite...eh?

Sounds like you've found a new cause to work for. In the meantime, let's keep secondhand cigarette smoke away from the kids...and adults, too, for that matter.

I'm guessing you will become a vocal advocate for meat control, grilling control, etc....unless you're just grasping at straws? But that would be pretty hypocritical, wouldn't it?

You really should chose a different ID as you have no common sense.

I'm not the one trying to ban you from doing anything that you enjoy. I'm simply pointing out the hypocrisy that your side is capable of.

Your kind hammers others choices, and then does things that are not healthy.

Did you know that meat smoke is the number one form of air pollution in many cities?

http://www.jstor.org/pss/3976126
Cass and his co-workers quantified 29 different sources of tiny organic particles in Los Angeles' air. In the April ES&T, they reported that meat smoke appears to account for more than one-fifth of these particles, substantially exceeding any other single source--including fireplaces, gasoline- and diesel-powered vehicles, dust raised during road paving, forest fires, organic chemical processing, metallurgical processing, jet aircraft and cigarettes.

There is nothing more annoying than a self righteous moral busybody with HUGE double standards.

I don't know why you keep trying to inject different topics into this discussion. If you feel so strongly about the meat smoke, forest fires, etc., then do something about it. In the meantime, let's all do what we can to keep the exposure of non-smokers (and expecially children)to cigarette smoke to a minimum.
