Gettin’ Health Risks Right (June 25, 2012)

. . .

_          “Nicotine in cigarettes is not a health risk.”1

_          “Lead in paint is not a health risk.”

_          “Asbestos in brakes is not a health risk.”

_          “PCBs in transformers are not a health risk.”

_          “DDT in pesticides is not a health risk.”

_          “DES in milk is not a health risk.”

_          “Chemicals in cosmetics are not a health risk.”

_          “Fracking fluid in our drinking water is not a health risk.”

[Corporations in politics are not a health risk.  The Supreme Court decided that Montana can be owned and run by corporations even if Montana does not want to be owned and run by corporations.  http://articles.latimes.com/2012/jun/25/nation/la-na-court-montana-20120626.]  

Bumper stickers of the week:

When you are trying to measure someone’s credibility, take a gander at his or her track record especially someone running for office.

“Dishonesty is not a health risk.”

1          Why were they called “coffin nails” one hundred years ago?  Why not prosecute the tobacco industry executives with a surfeit of Ivy League degrees who blatantly lied to Congress under oath?
