Further Information

“Conclusion: Our assessment of the existing evidence on passive smoking was made as a basis for drawing conclusions about the efficiency justifications for an increase in cigarette tax. Based on that evidence, as indicated in this testimony, our evaluation was that the statistical evidence does not appear to support a conclusion that there are substantial health effects of passive smoking.”

Emphasis added above. The situation has not changed since 1994. There is still no solid demonstration whatsoever that passive smoking is harmful to non smokers.
