Columnist Edmund Contoski shines light on anti-smoking’s irrational ideology.
"A major argument for smoking bans is the claim ‘there is no safe level’—no threshold—below which tobacco smoke is not dangerous. The ban advocates/activists invoke the well-known link of smoking and lung cancer and assert that, therefore, even secondhand smoke must also be carcinogenic. They claim the air from smoking can never be made clean enough to eliminate the health risk and thus smoking must be banned altogether. But the ‘no threshold’ hypothesis about cancer has never been shown to be true for ANY chemical, much less secondhand smoke."
