After a simple plea came in for White House help to get Hudson transferred to another hospital, First Lady Nancy Reagan turned down the request. On a Sunday evening in Julyjust hours after arriving in Paris from Los Angeles, Rock Hudson collapsed shortly after checking into the famed Ritz hotel. A constant fixture on the big screen, he starred alongside leading actresses like Elizabeth Taylor in Giant — netting an Oscar nomination for the role — and Doris Day in a series of popular romantic comedies. He was frail, ill — the airline almost refused to let him board the nonstop flight to France.

A new study recently published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine found that banning smoking in all U. All the diseases attributed to smoking are also present in non smokers.
It means, in other words, that they are multifactorial, that is, the result of the interaction of tens, hundreds, sometimes thousands of factors, either known or suspected contributors - of which smoking can be one.
The Committees commented that tobacco smoke was a highly complex chemical mixture and that the causative agents for smoke induced diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, effects on reproduction and on offspring was unknown.
The mechanisms by which tobacco induced adverse effects were not established. The best information related to tobacco smoke - induced lung cancer, but even in this instance a detailed mechanism was not available. The Committees therefore agreed that on the basis of current knowledge it would be very difficult to identify a toxicological testing strategy or a biomonitoring approach for use in volunteer studies with smokers where the end-points determined or biomarkers measured were predictive of the overall burden of tobacco-induced adverse disease.
The greatest threat to the second hand theory is the weakness of the first hand theory. Log in to post comments By harleyrider not verified on 14 Jan permalink This pretty well destroys the Myth of second hand smoke: Lungs from pack-a-day smokers safe for transplant, study finds.
Using lung transplants from heavy smokers may sound like a cruel joke, but a new study finds that organs taken from people who puffed a pack a day for more than 20 years are likely safe.
For some patients on a crowded organ waiting list, lungs from smokers are better than none. Sharven Taghavi, a cardiovascular surgical resident at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia, who led the new study Ive done the math here and this is how it works out with second ahnd smoke and people inhaling it!
The 16 cities study conducted by the U. A bartender would have to work in second hand smoke for years to get an equivalent dose. Then the average non-smoker in a ventilated restaurant for an hour would have to go back and forth each day foryears to get an equivalent 20 years of smoking a pack a day!
Pretty well impossible ehh! Not one name in the entire sack of propaganda! Log in to post comments By harleyrider not verified on 14 Jan permalink Theres more smokers today than in !
Log in to post comments By harleyrider not verified on 14 Jan permalink When we look at the CDC statistics that indicate that the most deadly ''smoking related diseases'' are mostly occurring in former smokers and never-smokers, one really has to wonder if there is reason to celebrate.
The topic of the first document you referenced is not what you think it is: Basically, they investigated the possibility of determining the effectiveness of these PREPS in-vivo and in-vitro. They specifically state that in now way should any of this distract from measures intended to reduce the prevalence of smoking.
Furthermore, double blind placebo controlled studies are unethical: Regarding the lungs of smokers as transplant donors, what is your point exactly? Lung transplants in no way resemble physiological conditions. In the face of this chronic rejection of lung tissue and diseases manifesting due to the necessary immune suppression, having pre-smoked lungs apparently no longer really matters.
Would you be surprised if I told you smoking does not affect the survival of Ebola infected patients? Really, I don't understand why of all the things you can be contrarian about is has to be something obvious as this.
It's worth a watch! Are you daft to think epidemiology proves causation! Epidemiologists Vote to Keep Doing Junk Science Epidemiology Monitor October An estimated attendees a recent meeting of the American College of Epidemiology voted approximately 2 to 1 to keep doing junk science!
Risk factor epidemiology focuses on specific cause-and-effect relationships—like heavy coffee drinking increases heart attack risk.
A different approach to epidemiology might take a broader perspective—placing heart attack risk in the context of more than just one risk factor, including social factors.
Risk factor epidemiology is nothing more than a perpetual junk science machine. I thought it was public health that mattered!
