This site features information on court rulings and epidemiological studies regarding ETS (enviromental tobacco smoke). The site will as it grows address other areas of public health, such as obesity, that such agencies as the CDC and the World Health Organization seem obsessed with controlling in the United States and, the latter, around the world. Smokescam offers a report, with corresponding evidence, that shows secondhand smoke has NOT been proved to be a danger to society. The report also points out the financial benefits antismoking activists, including pharmaceutical companies, medical institutions, doctors and non-profit agencies, have in continuing their scare tactics regarding smoke. We hope by reading the documented information on this site, visitors will see the big picture and realize, as we have, that those making money out of these scares have an agenda that serves them. They have no regard for the rights of others. If it profits them, they will take away all of your choices.
