Life: It Is Scary

Posted on February 20, 2014 8:00 am

A new study warns that exposure to surfaces that have been saturated in cigarette smoke, labeled as “third-hand smoke,” may be as deadly as smoking the cigarette itself.

Even more dangerous: the risk of paper cuts from reading panicky health reports.

    It talks about smoke on surfaces, I get that because I smoke, TV screens attract it like…a static smoke eater. But of course, the story doesn’t say HOW you would then be “exposed” to it. It’s stuck to whatever, just like….dirt. So, how exactly did these mice get exposed and how would anyone else? As long as you’re not licking the walls and TV screens, you’re probably safe.

    But remember, smoking pot is not only safe, it’s like medicine…man! Didn’t they used to have doctors doing cigarette ads in the 50′s? hmmmmm

    I too read the primary article and thought there were some issues with it. The biggest issue is that they used mice on carpet which is not really applicable to humans at all because humans don’t spend there whole day dragging their nose across the ground like mice do(I know there’s an Obama joke in that somewhere).

    it would be hard to find someone more anti-smoking than i am, but i don’t spend a lot of time licking drapes or couch, so even i will give this one a pass.

    I find that living around surfaces traveled by cats is equally scary – and disgusting.

    I’m actually more worried about the deadly fourth-hand smoke you get from being exposed to people who have been exposed to third-hand smoke.

    That’s the real killer.

    I am addicted to 2nd, 3rd and 4th hand smoke.

    I feel I should remind everyone that if Walt Raleigh hadn’t got Liz I addicted to tobacky the silly experiment of the colonies would have been abandoned back in the way’backs. Ergo. No US today.

    Kennedy was a goner anyway because Oswald was a smoker?
