The BS of BS
I just watched the episode of Penn & Teller Bulls— about secondhand smoke. They argue that the link between secondhand smoke and cancer is based on poor science. Is this the only thing that matters? There are enough other health risks to smoke that justify the bans on public smoking.
But when the smoking proponents started blowing their own BS, where were Penn & Teller? One smoker whined that activists will start arguing that people should not eat fattening foods. Another whined that he might not be able to smoke in his own home. If you eat fattening foods, your foods do not enter my bloodstream! If you smoke in your home, I don’t breathe your smoke. They’re arguing about liberties, but your liberties end where mine begin. Your right to smoke violates my right to breathe fresh air.
I think smoke has clearly gotten to the brains of the smokers. But I’m even more disappointed that Penn & Teller didn’t challenge these absurd claims. For shame.
