"I would light up myself"
You actually do. Did you know?
People who would never dream of smoking a cigarette choose to burn wood. Yet wood smoke contains many of the same toxic and carcinogenic substances as cigarette smoke, including benzene, benzo(a)pyrene, and dibenz(a,h)anthracene.
And wood smoke produces far more particulate pollution than cigarette smoke does.
EPA researchers estimate the lifetime cancer risk from wood smoke to be 12 times greater than from a similar amount of cigarette smoke.

Besides many people at the campgrounds have no qualms about putting plastic, lighter fluid, treated or painted lumber, colored sales fliers, magazines or other carcinogenic substances in their fires, or fireplaces for that mater.

Oh my.... It's a wonder any of us have lived this long in such nasty environments. I have got to look into getting a bubble.

What gets me is people trying to blame one thing for health problems when it's a combination of genetics, environmental hazards and lifestyle. No one thing can be pinned down as the lone cause.

Agreed. This thread has gotten way off-topic and the OP hasn't been back since starting it. For the sake of forum harmony, this thread has been closed.
