    Can't we all just quit smoking?!?!

    Let's follow the money, instead of the smoke! It's the "Tobacco-Related Disease Research Program" which funds this study. And not only this one, but the research of lots of scientists at Berkeley, among them Gundel, are paid from this source.
    Check their website and search for grants for "Berkeley" (not allowed to post the link here).

    Hmm, imho this is something that should be noted in those news reports, don't you think? Well, and why was TRDRP created? "The Legislature asked the University of California to establish and administer a research program to facilitate the elimination of smoking in California"! So they say on their own website.

    Uhuh, so a program whose purpose is to get rid of smoking, funds studies which consequently find that all things nicotine are harmful? What a surprise!!! And only nitpicking people would conclude that such an approach, where the desired result is known before the research even starts, isn't totally in line with scientific eethics...

    I've smoked for years, had many health problems and still find it hard to quit...but I'm not so blind that I believe they aren't harmful!

    Sorry, Gray--whatever money is being used to fund studies against smoking is pennies compared to the money that goes into the tobacco pushers PR machine...

    Very enlightening article. I didn't even know what third hand smoke was until I read this. I've seen too many friends and relatives who tried ever so hard and could not quit but according to this, they are harming more than just themselves. I think the key to stopping smoking is prevention.

    Not many people reported the electronic cigarette hazard--even on major outlets. Nice work!

    GOOD. Many people still suffering deadly habit~~2nd or 3rd ... whatever they are all victims from nicotine~!!!

    it is absolutely incredible that no one here actually read the article. when a cigarette BURNS the SMOKE residue attaches to walls and surfaces and such. when an e-cig user inhales, they receive VAPOR, not smoke. comparing smoke to vapor is dumb. smoke and vapor don't even have similar physical properties. looks like its time for you all to get a little freshening up on basic science. i'm pretty sure we went over this at my school in 4th grade. oh well...
