One of the reasons behind these scares:
"Ignorance of the basic principle of toxicology,'the dose makes the poison,' as consumers fretover the presence of even a single molecule of asubstance that is not hazardous to humans unlessit is consumed in large amounts."
...like less than 1 nanogram per milliliter...
lol! "...The ACSH is known as an "industry-friendly" group.[22] In 1982, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), a watchdog and consumer advocacy group, known to spar with ACSH, published an extensive report on ACSH's practices that stated, "ACSH appears to be a consumer fraud; as a scientific group, ACSH seems to arrive at conclusions before conducting studies. Through voodoo or alchemy, bodies of scientific knowledge are transmogrified into industry-oriented position statements."[23] CSPI director Michael F. Jacobson said of ACSH,'"This organization promotes confusion among consumers about what is safe and what isn't... ACSH is using a slick scientific veneer to obscure and deny truths that virtually everyone else agrees with."[24]

In 2004, the now-defunct Tufts University Nutrition Navigator (a rating guide to nutrition websites) gave the ACSH site an overall rating of 20 out of 25 and an "Accuracy of Information" rating of 8 out of 10. However, it commented, "This site aims to arm consumers with the facts necessary to make wise decisions about health, but be aware that the information here is biased and represents a very conservative interpretation of current science. Consumers looking for a balanced debate on health issues will have to look elsewhere."[25]..."

Yes stupid, Bush had 9/11 which he didn't even attempt to prevent despite warnings that an attack was imminent. Of the two wars one was arguably necessary, Afghanistan and one was totally unnecessary, Iraq. The housing crisis was caused by greed, pure and simple and Republican anti regulatory policies allowed that to happen. Meanwhile his tax cuts for the wealthiest 5% cost the Treasury $11.6 million every hour of every day. The Iraq war not only distracted from our more justified operation in Afghanistan prolonging that conflict but has cost over $3 trillion dollars and that cost will keep on rising due to the continuing care required for those who came back physically and mentally damaged and will add another $.5 trillion to the debt.
Yes Carol the debt has increased but not because of spending which has been essentially flat under Obama, it's falling revenue due to the recession and Bush's tax cuts and service on the debt that Bush incurred for his wars.

If Bush had left the tax rates alone which Eisenhower wisely did, limited our actions in Afghanistan to supporting the Northern Alliance with surgical strikes on known Al Qaeda sites and left Iraq the hell alone, we wouldn't even be having this conversation.

What's in secondhand smoke?
Secondhand smoke — also known as environmental tobacco smoke — includes the smoke that a smoker exhales (mainstream smoke) and the smoke that comes directly from the burning tobacco product (sidestream smoke). Secondhand smoke contains thousands of toxic chemicals, including:
Ammonia, used in cleaning products
Butane, used in lighter fluid
Carbon monoxide, found in car exhaust
Chromium, used to make steel
Cyanide, used in chemical weapons
Formaldehyde, an industrial chemical
Lead, a toxic metal
Polonium, a radioactive substance
The dangerous particles in secondhand smoke can linger in the air for hours or even longer. It isn't just the smoke that's a concern, though. The residue that clings to a smoker's hair and clothing, as well as cushions, carpeting and other goods — sometimes referred to as thirdhand smoke — also can pose risks, especially for children.

"" Secondhand Smoke

What is secondhand smoke?

Secondhand smoke (SHS) is also known as environmental tobacco smoke (ETS). SHS is a mixture of 2 forms of smoke that come from burning tobacco:
• Sidestream smoke – smoke from the lighted end of a cigarette, pipe, or cigar
• Mainstream smoke – the smoke exhaled by a smoker

Even though we think of these as the same, they aren’t. Sidestream smoke has higher concentrations of cancer-causing agents (carcinogens) than mainstream smoke. And, it has smaller particles than mainstream smoke, which make their way into the lungs and the body’s cells more easily.

When non-smokers are exposed to SHS it is called involuntary smoking or passive smoking. Non-smokers who breathe in SHS take in nicotine and toxic chemicals by the same route smokers do. The more SHS you breathe, the higher the level of these harmful chemicals in your body.

Why is secondhand smoke a problem?

Secondhand smoke causes cancer

Secondhand smoke is classified as a “known human carcinogen”(cancer-causing agent) by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the US National Toxicology Program, and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a branch of the World Health Organization.

Tobacco smoke contains more than 7,000 chemical compounds. More than 250 of these chemicals are known to be harmful, and at least 69 are known to cause cancer.

SHS has been linked to lung cancer. There is also some evidence suggesting it may be linked with childhood leukemia and cancers of the larynx (voice box), pharynx (throat), brain, bladder, rectum, stomach, and breast.

IARC reported in 2009 that parents who smoked before and during pregnancy were more likely to have a child with hepatoblastoma. This rare cancer is thought to start while the child is still in the uterus. Compared with non-smoking parents, the risk was about twice as high if only one parent smoked, but nearly 5 times higher when both parents smoked.

Secondhand smoke and breast cancer

Whether SHS increases the risk of breast cancer is an issue that’s still being studied. Both mainstream and SHS have about 20 chemicals that, in high concentrations, cause breast cancer in rodents. And we know that in humans, chemicals from tobacco smoke reach breast tissue and are found in breast milk.

One reason the link between SHS and breast cancer risk in human studies is uncertain is because breast cancer risk has not been shown to be increased in active smokers. One possible explanation for this is that tobacco smoke might have different effects on breast cancer risk in smokers and in those who are exposed to SHS.

A report from the California Environmental Protection Agency in 2005 concluded that the evidence regarding SHS and breast cancer is “consistent with a causal association” in younger women. This means the SHS acts as if it could be a cause of breast cancer in these women. The 2006 US Surgeon General’s report, The Health Consequences of Involuntary Exposure to Tobacco Smoke, sums it up by saying that there is “suggestive but not sufficient” evidence of a link.

Research is still being done, but women should be told that this possible link to breast cancer is yet another reason to avoid being around SHS.""

----------

The first rule of holes, including azzholes like you, is to stop digging when you find yourself in one, Carol!!

Your nonsense about smoking was rejected, even by the Cigarette Companies, who paid millions in fines and finally admitted to Congress that their product is dangerous.

Look Out, Farmer Joe! Fox Reports That EPA Drones Are Spying On You

UPDATE: The EPA has officially denied the use of unmanned drones. It turns out that the surveillance program has only used manned aircraft. Fox News has corrected the mistake here.
http://www.mediaite.com/tv/look-out-farmer-jo...

The truth is that for more than 10 years, the EPA has flown over farmland in small aircraft, looking for clean water violations, like dirty runoff or manure dumps in a stream.

Eventually many publications, including the Daily Caller and the New American, corrected their original reports with the official response from the EPA that no unmanned drones have been used in surveillance. Fox News also began reporting that the EPA used planes, not unmanned drones.

The Post‘s David A. Fahrenthold sees this whole debacle as a case study in “the vibrant, almost viral, life cycle of a falsehood” in American politics.

Fox's Megyn Kelly Wrong On Impact Of EPA's Coal Regulations

Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly reported the claim that "a fifth of America's electricity generating capacity is about to be taken offline" due to Environmental Protection Agency limits on pollution from coal plants. In fact, this statement vastly overstates even the worst-case scenarios pushed by industry groups, which are themselves based on assumptions that the Congressional Research Service has called into question.

What we've learned here is that anything Carol is against is likely something that helps Americans.

Think about it!! She's railed against science for years now, proving her denial of reality and clinging to nonsense.

Her denial of the dangers of smoking and of second hand smoke prove her to be a nitwit.

A nitwit who sits at the computer with a piece of pie and a cigarette.

And she has diabetes and high cholesterol!! Now we learn she's a smoker, still denying proven science.

She is an example of why our healthcare system is under strain. Her disgusting personal habits cost the rest of us money.

Then she complains about others getting healthcare.

"The Health Consequences of Involuntary Exposure to Tobacco Smoke: A Report of the Surgeon General

June 27, 2006

""“The Health Effects of Secondhand Smoke”

Thank you, Rear Admiral Moritsugu for your kind introduction.

I am grateful to be here today and to be able to say unequivocally that the debate is over. The science is clear: secondhand smoke is not a mere annoyance, but a serious health hazard that causes premature death and disease in children and nonsmoking adults.

Updating the Evidence
Twenty years ago, the 1986 Surgeon General’s Report on The Health Consequences of Involuntary Smoking concluded that secondhand smoke exposure was a cause of disease in nonsmokers. That Report, which was one of the first major reports to investigate this topic, concluded that secondhand smoke caused lung cancer among nonsmoking adults and several respiratory problems among children.

Since that Report was published, hundreds of peer-reviewed studies and several additional major reports on the health effects of secondhand smoke have been published, and the evidence on these health effects has become even stronger.

The Surgeon General’s Report that we are releasing today, The Health Consequences of Involuntary Exposure to Tobacco Smoke, documents beyond any doubt that secondhand smoke harms people’s health. In the course of the past 20 years, the scientific community has reached consensus on this point.

Main Messages
I would like to draw your attention to several new conclusions that I have reached due to overwhelming scientific evidence.

Secondhand smoke exposure causes heart disease and lung cancer in adults and sudden infant death syndrome and respiratory problems in children.
There is NO risk-free level of secondhand smoke exposure, with even brief exposure adversely affecting the cardiovascular and respiratory system.
Only smoke-free environments effectively protect nonsmokers from secondhand smoke exposure in indoor spaces.
Finally, the Report concludes that, while great strides have been made in recent years in reducing nonsmoking Americans’ secondhand smoke exposure, millions of Americans continue to be exposed to secondhand smoke in their homes and workplaces.
Secondhand Smoke is Harmful to All People
Allow me to expand on the first major conclusion. Secondhand smoke is a health hazard for all people: it is harmful to both children and adults, and to both women and men. It is harmful to nonsmokers whether they are exposed in their homes, their vehicles, their workplaces, or in enclosedpublic places. We have found that certain populations are especially susceptible to the health effects of secondhand smoke, including infants and children, pregnant women, older persons, and persons with pre-existing respiratory conditions and heart disease.
