Smokescreens

A couple of weeks ago Rich White sent me an electronic copy of his book “Smokescreens, The Truth About Tobacco.”  It’s clear and well written and he provides a good explanation of anti-tobacco research, including not only the science, but the politics behind it.  I especially liked his chapters on second hand smoke.

You can find excerpts from the book, and the book itself, at his site, Smoke Screens.

  1. Dave,
    I checked out the book and read the first 2 chapters. Looks like good stuff, but I noticed he went ballistic about Aspartame and quoted an EnviroNazi whose last name is “Mullarkey”. This makes me wonder about some of his assertions. Will definitely read the third chapter and refer others, but may not buy it. Interesting.

  2. I don’t agree with all his conclusions either – I think there’s no doubt that primary smoking is risky, for instance. But I thought it was worth taking a look at.
