Smoking in all cars across the UK should be banned to protect people from second-hand smoke, doctors say. The British Medical Association has made the call following research that shows the level of toxins in a car can be up to 23 times higher than in a smoky bar.
This is, of course, a complete fiction - no, a lie:
In a study in the Canadian Medical Association Journal entitled 'Second-hand smoke in cars: How did the “23 times more toxic” myth turn into fact?', MacKenzie and Freeman showed that the "fact" was entirely without scientific evidence and stemmed from a, obscure quote in a local newspaper in 1998 (as I had revealed on this blog two months earlier).
Doesn't stop them using it, does it!
