Second-Hand Smoke Again?

From the “sometimes the fraud is so obvious only really smart people can’t see it” department.

The EPA Particulate Matter studies greatly exaggerated the health risks of exposure to PM 2.5 (Particulate Matter as small as 2.5 microns) to justify proposed regulations to control second-hand smoke.

Sugar-punchlineA new study indicates you can smoke (each cigarette is a massive PM2.5 exposure) until you are age 35, quit, and then by age 50 statistically have normal life expectancy — despite inhaling over 4 pounds of PM2.5 as a smoker. For comparison, a non-smoker inhales about 2 ounces of PM2.5 over the course of an 80-year lifespan.
