Serious question: if secondhand smoke is as dangerous as they say, why don’t the majority of Americans over 30 suffer from lung problems by now? And why aren’t the Baby Boomers all dead? Considering how ubiquitous cigarette smoking used to be, there’s no way Social Security can be in any danger if the anti-smoke extremists are right. Also, I should be one of the oldest women in America
At any rate, the Nutmeg State’s mulling a ban on smoking in cars with children, so I called the politician promoting the bill to ask about these suspiciously low Boomer death rates.
