Quote of the Day

"I am now done with Mike Siegel and his blog."

Dr. Stan Glantz, anti-smoking pioneer, researcher, and advocate

November 13, 2007

Dr. Glantz' entire response can be found here.

Of note, the response fails to address the question at hand: is there or is there not evidence that a nonsmoker exposed to secondhand smoke for 30 minutes is at the same risk of a fatal heart attack as an active smoker?

Instead, the response addresses a statement that I have not taken issue with -- the assertion that brief exposure to secondhand smoke could potentially trigger a heart attack in someone with severe, pre-existing coronary artery stenosis.
