Johns Hopkins air quality testing of secondhand smoke proves yet again that levels are hundreds of times safer than OSHA regulations

Clearing the Air has informed readers of numerous air quality test results which proved that secondhand smoke is not an occupational hazard........yet uniformed lawmakers around the country continue to pass smoking bans based on the special interests' argument that secondhand smoke is a workplace health hazard. If they would simply consider the air quality test results in comparison to OSHA regulations there is only one conclusion an INFORMED lawmaker could come to......the special interest Nicoderm funded activists are pulling the wool over their eyes.

Now a
recent series of air quality test results from Johns Hopkins proves once again the facts that have been confirmed in every other comprehensive secondhand smoke test result.

The study is supported by the American Cancer Society and the Flight Attendants Medical Research Institute.

The Johns Hopkins test results ranged from 2.1 to 16.9 micrograms (µg)/m3 (cubic meter) of airborne nicotine in smoking allowed establishments. However, what Johns Hopkins neglects to mention in the article is that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has a permissible exposure limit (pel) for airborne nicotine is 0.5 milligrams (mg)/m3, which equals 500 micrograms (µg)/m3.

So the JH test results prove that secondhand smoke levels at bars and restaurants in Baltimore, MD are 29.6 (500 divided by 16.9) to 238 (500 divided by 2.1) times SAFER than OSHA regulations.

Over and over again the facts prove that pro-smoking ban activists are misleading lawmakers, the media and society into enacting unnecessary and arbitrary laws, which are eliminating thousands of businesses and tens of thousands of jobs.

Additionally, smoking bans have had a profound effect on the worldwide economy:
