ETS for Dummies II uitgegeven

Ter gelegenheid van Wereld Rokersdag brengt Forces International een nieuwe versie van ETS (Environmental Tobacco Smoke) for Dummies uit. Het boek beschrijft uitgebreid de onzin die in de wereld wordt gezet over omgevingsgrook. Vergeleken met de oude versie is deze versie beter toegankelijk voor het doorsnee publiek.

Naast diverse Forces wetenschappers hebben onder andere Joe Jackson en een Engels hogerhuislid meegeholpen bij de samenstelling van deze nieuwe editie.

ETS for Dummies IIThe book, written with the help of the epidemiologists of the FORCES International Scientific Committee, lists and analyses all the epidemiological studies ever published from 1981 to 2003 on passive smoke, and teaches the non-specialised reader how to understand the information himself. Furthermore, it explains – in a clear and simple way – the epidemiological mechanism used to build the Fraud of the Century, spent as scientific proof by a “public health” medical class which is guilty of the most contemptible concept of dishonesty.

Provided with 23 pages of scientific references, the book highlights the deep institutional crisis of public health. This institution, still without solid scientific arguments on smoking, has turned to epidemiological fraud and false representation of evidence to implement its political agenda of cultural change and pharmaceutical promotion.

The first 15 pages of the book are dedicated to the most common questions the layperson may ask, and cover the spectrum of common objections – from the effect of propaganda on non-smokers to “scientific” concerns based on misunderstandings about the meaning of epidemiology, correlation and causality – objections that reflect on antismoking social problems as well as on the state of scientific knowledge.

This book is a must-read for anyone interested in the subject — smokers and non smokers, activists and lawyers, academics and business people.

  • I've alllllllways said that asking smokers "do you want to quit?" and reporting the results of that question, as is, is horribly misleading. It's a TWO part question. After asking if one wants to quit it must be followed up with "Why?" Ask why and the majority of the answers will be "because I'm supposed to" (victims of guilt and propaganda), not "because I want to."
