Rubbish science and the third hand smoke scam

Yes, as you thought, it's all complete rubbish; comprehensively debunked over at Velvet Glove, Iron Fist;

The thirdhand smoke scam

"An extended version of my article about the thirdhand smoke study is on the Free Society website today. Quick summary: they used 14 times as much nitrous acid and 15 times as much nicotine as would be found in a normal home to produce a few nanograms of a substance that isn't a carcinogen. Apart from that, great study."

The sequel to the equally manipulated faux 'science' nonsense of second hand smoke.

Next big drive is the agitprop they are currently compiling (with lottery cash) to force a ban on smoking in homes. Report scheduled for early 2013.
