PASSIVE SMOKE: The EPA'S Betrayal Of Science And Policy.

By Gori, Gio and John Luik.

Fraser Institute:, 1999. 118 pages. "In 1993 a EPA study concluded that second-hand smoke caused around 3,000 lung cancer deaths a year among non-smokers. Anti-tobacco activists used the report to secure full or partial bans on indoor smoking in the U.S. AND Canada. Recently, however a U.S. Federal Court declared the EPA's risk assessment of ETS null and void, finding that the agency acted illegally and corrupted science to engage in a campaign of public disinformation. If the science underpinning public policy is purposefully distorted, then the public's trust in regulatory decisions will be lost- with disastrous consequences. Reflecting on the facts, this book raises fundamental questions about the endemic abuses of power by public bureaucracies." FINE SOFTCOVER.. Soft Cover. Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.



By Birjandi, Parvin.

Parvin Birjandi:, 1955. 85 pages. The author notes in his introduction "According to a report of the University of Michigan's Survey Research Center, one half of all the smokers in the city on Ann Arbor where the research was conducted, have changed their smoking habits in some way or another during the past year. Eight per cent gave up smoking completely and the rest either cut down or changed to filter tip cigarettes. Considering the fact that the smokers comprised one half of their adult population, the proportion of public concern over smoking appears tremendous. Since the wirter's previous paper on this same subject one year ago, more evidence has been produced attributing lung cancer to prolonged, heavy smoking. Whether this adverse physiological effect of smoking proves valid or not seems of little concern to the purpose of this study, except for the fact that it adds one more to the various reasons, and this will be a vitally important reason, why people will want to stop smoking. In the University of Michigan survey, only fourty per cent of those who changed their smoking habits said they did so because of the new rumors about cancer. Thio is an old problem. It is a common phenomenon that to many smokers, smoking is not a mere relaxing, pleasureable activity, but an undesirable and threatening behavior with which they feel they have to cope and often times are unable to so. This brings to focus a question raised in the writer's previous paper. Since, from a pharmaological standpoint, it is possible to break nicotine or even much more serious addictions, why do some people, despite their conscious effects and pharacological help, fail to break the habit?" This book is a Dissertation presented to the Faculty of the Graduate College at the University of Denver for the partial fulfillment of the requirments for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy..

University of California Press:, 1996. 539 pages. This book "shows that the tobacco industry's conduct has been more cynical and devious than even its harshest critics had suspected. For more than three decades the industry has internally acknowledged that smoking is addictive and that use of tobacco products causes disease and death. The Cigarette Papers finally brings the deception to an end by allowing the public to hear the tobacco industry speak in its own words." FINE HARDCOVER, FINE DUST JACKET.. Hard Cover.
