    Ever notice how dogs don't get lung cancer much? I googled it today and the incidence of lung cancer in dogs is less that 1%. Which pretty much points to the "fact" of second hand smoke being harmful being a lie. You just know that dogs absorb a lot of smoke from their redneck owners.

    Cats, guinea pigs, hamsters....same thing.

    Nothing more than a conspiracy.

    I always figured that second hand screen was a lie.

    However I did not appriciate the smokers fouling my air & enjoy the smoke-free public buildings & resturants.

    The Government usually lies to control the population.

    The EPA is an idealogical movement not based on facts but based solely on fear propaganda. The EPA was started by lies published in Rachel Carson's book "Silent Spring" Rachel Carson's biggest lie was that DDT was killing the American Bald Eagles. The EPA was created because of this book. They then used the EPA to ban DDT. This DDT ban killed over 60 million people. Liberal propaganda has killed more people than all wars ever fought.

    Lies in Rachel Carson's book "Silent Spring"

    Now that the fear based DDT propaganda has been exposed, the DDT ban has been lifted. Again proving that the EPA is nothing more than a political propaganda tool used to control people. Most of our jobs have been shipped out of this country thanks solely to the EPA.

    Al Gore says in his introduction to the 1992 edition of her book "For me personally, Silent Spring had a profound impact ... Indeed, Rachel Carson was one of the reasons that I became so conscious of the environment and so involved with environmental issues ... Carson has had as much or more effect on me than any, and perhaps than all of them together."

    The Government has been lying about "Peak Oil" for 100 years.

    They have been lying about "Man Made Global Warming" for over 20 years.

    I read about "3rd hand smoke" the other day. Some hospital is making all employees quit or lose their job. They claim that smoke on hair and clothing is dangerous to patients. I'd love to see that "science".

    Umm from your linked article.

    WHO actively promoted indoor residual spraying for malaria control until the early 1980s when increased health and environmental concerns surrounding DDT caused the organization to stop promoting its use and to focus instead on other means of prevention. Extensive research and testing has since demonstrated that well-managed indoor residual spraying programmes using DDT pose no harm to wildlife or to humans.

    I think the key word here is "indoor".

    And you do realize that "the govt lying" includes both party's don't you?
    And I will certainly not duspute that the govt lies to us.

    The fact that dogs don't perspirate may have something to do with it. All that panting, heavy breathing, slobbering...

    Maybe if humans had sex more often...

    Did you also know that major coporations take out life insurance policies on their employees with themselves as beneficiaries?
    And it is legal for corps to do it but not individuals.
    And they can continue the coverage after you no longer work for them.

    Covering their bets?
