Well I’d assume you suck in a deep breath as you press the cylinder. That should take care of it getting into your lungs.

There will be deaths but I suppose in the equation to save the planet a few asthmatics are expendable.

The anti-human environazis actually see it as a good thing that people will die from their envirofascist laws. At the root of their ideology is the desire to kill as many people as possible and to lower the living standard of those they can't manage to kill. All of their talk about saving the environment is just to fool people.

They won’t be happy until we’re living like a third world country. Except for themselves of course, the elite must live well so as to be able to take care of the rest of us. I read today that certain rat poisons are going to be banned beginning Oct.2009. Too dangerous for children,pets and wildlife. Tell that to the poor (that they care so much about) who have to live with them every day.

(Ozone means nothing when you're dead)

True! Those behind getting rid of CFC's will tell you that the rest of us can breathe easier, though. That might not be the best phraseology, but ... well ... you get what they mean.

I to have COPD and talked to my doctor when I was sent the new and improved inhaler and he said that is the way it is. He put me on Proventil but it costs a ton. The inhalers just don't work as well as the old ones. I have trouble getting the stuff deep into my lungs and I have found it hard to get a full measure when using it. If you don't push the tube just right you get a small shot instead of the full shot. Just my experience.

Dupont, the company that discovered that CFC’s destroy the ozone layer, and introduced NEW refrigerants just when the Dupont patents on CFC’s were getting ready to expire, has decided to promote the Global Warming Hoax because there’s money out there for corporations that sell “solutions.”

Harming the ozone with a pocket inhaler!

Are these people out of their minds.

I use albuterol inhalers and it’s the only thing that really works.

I had better see one those abulance chasing law firm adds saying “if you have suffered... you may be entitled to a settlment. We can all sign up then!

“Walgreens quit carrying them last year. “

They still have them at my local Walgreens. I added another one to my stock just last week.

My local Walgreens told me that all the stores quit carrying them and I told them I won't step foot in another Walgreens again. It looks like they lost a customer due to their lie.

Maybe they aren’t getting more, but my store still has stock on hand. I was able to stock up on about 5 years worth.
