not that it will do you any good (it wouldn't seem, anyway) but here is a link to the EPA's site about second hand smoke.

i don't know how you dispute it, other than relying on big tobacco funded studies (see brainwashing!) for your information.
here is a link to the center for disease control's findings. they are particularly damning. i quote, for your convenience the cdc:
"Secondhand smoke contains more than 250 chemicals known to be toxic or carcinogenic (cancer-causing), including formaldehyde, benzene, vinyl chloride, arsenic, ammonia, and hydrogen cyanide. Children who are exposed to secondhand smoke are inhaling many of the same cancer-causing substances and poisons as smokers."
good luck.
Have you noticed something missing from this material? How many other applications are these same 250 chemicals found in day to day exposures. How many parts per million are these chemicals found in day to day exposures and how many parts per million are these found in a casual exposure to SHS?
Why does this matter you may think. If Formaldehyde is hazardous at .05 parts per million and in casual exposure by way of SHS it is measured at .000005 parts per million the sail comes out of the winds. They are being truthful that this chemical is found in SHS but may be misleading to the levels.
It is a sales game. "Save up to $1,000.00" sounds great but $1.00 falls into that category but isn't significant.
BTW do you think that the pharmaceutical companies may have paid for any of these studies?

I have been all over the country and everwhere they have put in these bans the little bars fold and corporate bar/testaurants take over.

The sky is falling, the sky is falling...haha that silly argument has been used over and over by the die-hard smokestacks in denial!

The reality is, if a smoking ban is causing a bar to fail, trust me, its not the smoking ban that is causing it!

Now save the chicken little crap for people who actually fall for it!
