I sincerely hope that it does. Where is it written that every individual in every location and at all times is going to be able to control their particular environment?

The anti-smoking jihad needs to go away now. They are going to bring about a prohibition that will end as badly as did the last prohibition.

Don't want to breath in smoke then don't breath.

You gotta die of something, might as well be this.

But it is funny how the no-smoke crew keeps talking about allof the money the government is oging to save when these smokers don;t get lung cancer someday. Gee, I wonder if they are factoring in the added years of life they are forcing on smokers. I wonder if they are going to pay for the extra social security and medicare and medicaid.

We're going to pay for it one way or the other, but we are going to pay.

I'm not jewish and I don't think it is necessary to use the legal system to force an extend life at any cost on our entire society. That's what this really about, you have a tiny, insignificant group who want to extend their own lives at any cost and now we're all going to have to deal with it.

They've done it with stupid, useless laws against drinking, smoking, drugs, trans-fat, etc;

They are running your lives people. The tail is wagging the dog and you idiots are buying the B S, hook, line and sinker.

Bravo, you've killed america. so much for free will, free choice, etc; etc; etc; ..........

It is problematic that the study authors have apparently not released the full results and methods of the study because without the full methods and results, it is not possible for others in the field to adequately review the work and assess its validity. I personally feel that researchers should not publicize study findings prior to publication unless they are willing to make the full findings and methods available. Releasing results via press release to the media and the public should not be done until publication, or if it needs to be done before publication, then it should only be done with concomitant release of the entire study.

I have a lot of interesting data about secondhand smoke myself, but I am not going to release them publicly until after they are published. The problem is that if I release these data without the full study, then no one has an opportunity to review the study. It is very possible that upon peer review, my conclusions might be found to be invalid, or at very least, there might be some changes I need to make in my methods to correct the analysis (this is quite common). But here's the rub: if my results and conclusions have already been disseminated in newspapers throughout the country, it's too late to correct them when the corrected - or valid - results are actually published.

To me, the story here is not so much about secondhand smoke and depression (a relationship which we have no ability to evaluate), but instead is about the appropriateness of what I like to call "science by press release," by which I mean trying to communicate important scientific findings to the public via the media, but without making the full methods/results available for scrutiny and review. The problem with this approach is that should the results subsequently be found to be invalid upon peer review, it is too late: the information has already been disseminated.

Doubt the anti-this-and-thats will have any extra time on this planet. They're always so stressed out and you know what that can do.
Stress= the #1 killer.
Unless it's something else this week. Who can keep track.

You are truly a sick person trying to rip off smokers by getting them to give their financial information to criminals. You need to find real work. Maybe you could stand on the street corner with a sign that says "Will work for food."
