Further Information

The infamous 1992 Report of the Environmental Protection Agency that sanctioned the passive smoking fraud throughout the world. This meta-analysis was heavily criticized by thousands of parties in the US and around the world, and it was confirmed a methodological and statistical fraud even by a United States Federal Distric Court.

The EPA cheated and bent any written and unwritten rule of the book of epidemiology to reach predetermined results that were indispensable to establish the political, legal, and bureucratic foundations for the total prohibition to smoke in public places. With egregious intent, the editors of this report set loose a wave of public hysteria that induced a great number of non-smokers, as well as many smokers, to perceive ETS (Environmental Tobacco Smoke or passive smoke) as some sort of mustard gas guaranteed to cause disease and death.

In reality, the creation of this utterly fabricated perception was intended to create the "moral" foundations to unchain and legitimize public hatred of smokers and smoking, and to deny the rights issue to tobacco consumers.

Then as now, the "dangers" of passive smoking are a political and epidemiological fraud, even beyond the fallacious exaggerations of the risks of active smoking, against which indeed the ETS myth has been created to augment the guilt of the smoker and induce him to quit and conform.
