Did not know that. Very interesting.

I have known for a long time that the hysteria over second-hand smoke is profoundly unscientific. SHS is unpleasant, and I’m the first to admit I don’t miss having to breathe it in the bar. But it is very doubtful it ever posed much of a risk for anyone other than those with extreme exposure levels. (Such as those working in the smoky bars and restaurants 40 or 50 hours a week.)

Tobacco smoke isn’t inherently any more risky to inhale than any other smoke. It’s just that people don’t inhale massive amounts of smoke voluntarily under other circumstances.

There are links to the studies here. You need to dig into the studies to find the actual results.
