Reference Manual on Scientific Evidence: Third Edition
This s o r t a says it all
These limits generally are based on assessments of health risk and calculations of concentrations that are associated with what the regulators believe to be negligibly small risks. The calculations are made after first identifying the total dose of a chemical that is safe (poses a negligible risk) and then determining the concentration of that chemical in the medium of concern that should not be exceeded if exposed individuals (typically those at the high end of media contact) are not to incur a dose greater than the safe one.
So OSHA standards are what is the guideline for what is acceptable ''SAFE LEVELS''
OSHA SAFE LEVELS
All this is in a small sealed room 9x20 and must occur in ONE HOUR.
For B e n z o [a]p y r e n e, 222,000 cigarettes.
"For Acetone, 118,000 cigarettes.
"Toluene would require 50,000 packs of simultaneously smoldering cigarettes.
Acetaldehyde or Hydrazine, more than 14,000 smokers would need to light up.
"For Hydroquinone, "only" 1250 cigarettes.
For arsenic 2 million 500,000 smokers at one time.
The same number of cigarettes required for the other so called chemicals in s h s / e t s will have the same outcomes.
So, OSHA finally makes a statement on s h s / e t s :
Field studies of environmental tobacco smoke indicate that under normal conditions, the components in tobacco smoke are diluted below existing Permissible Exposure Levels (PELS.) as referenced in the Air Contaminant Standard (29 CFR 1910.1000)...It would be very rare to find a workplace with so much smoking that any individual PEL would be exceeded." -Letter From Greg Watchman, Acting S e c y, OSHA.
Why are their any smoking bans at all they have absolutely no validity to the courts or to science!
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.
What's more, the analysis of lung transplant data from the U.S. between 2005 and 2011 confirms what transplant experts say they already know: For some patients on a crowded organ waiting list, lungs from smokers are better than none.
"I think people are grateful just to have a shot at getting lungs," said D r S h a r v e n Ta g h a v a cardiovascular surgical resident at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia, who led the new study...........................
I've done the math here and this is how it works out with second hand smoke and people inhaling it!
The 16 cities study conducted by the U.S. DEPT OF ENERGY and later by Oakridge National laboratories discovered:
Cigarette smoke, bartenders annual exposure to smoke rises, at most, to the equivalent of 6 cigarettes/year.
146,000 CIGARETTES SMOKED IN 20 YEARS AT 1 PACK A DAY.
A bartender would have to work in second hand smoke for 2433 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 for 119,000 years to get an equivalent 20 years of smoking a pack a day! Pretty well impossible !
actually it is the complete opposire cigarettes contain more carcinogens and un natural chemicals. But if you are buying pure marijuana ( not laced or fake stuff) then it is incredibally safer and less harsh on your lungs. the best way to smoke marijuana is to buy a vaporizer which vaporizes the thc on the bud which is the phycoactive ingrediant along with cbd in marijuana. vaping the weed causes it to just burn off the thc and noth the plant matter.
It all depends on how it is smoked.. If it's smoked with tobacco, then of course it is, because then you're smoking both..
For your physical health, Tobacco it worse! For your mental health Marajuana is a very dangerous drug and it much worse than Tobacco!
If only I could still smoke weed man Id be so stoned !! But to respond to your question There is pros and cons for both but cigs are a wee bit worse due to all the additives but weed has those undetermined things and of course you just like I used to feel it when you cough and in your chest !! Its about you knowing your body and if you dig your weed enough or feel it in your body effecting you in an uncool way !!
No, marijuana second hand smoke is less harmful for you than tobacco smoke. Marijuana smoke does not contain the deadly carcinogens that cigarette smoke does. I heard on a documentary that there aren't any known cases of marijuana smoke alone causing lung cancer or emphysema. If someone is smoking weed around you then you don't really have anything to worry about.
Yes you can get second hand marijuana smoke. It's called a "Contact buzz".
It's nothing major, and no more than slight dizziness for a short period of time. But as far as drug tests go, drug tests search for THC (The active chemical in marijuana.) And with second hand having so little, you should be absolutely fine.
cigarettes are WORSE than weed. smoking weed does nothing to your lungs or doesnt give you cancer. weed just gets to your head. compare the number of people who died from smoking cigarettes to the people who smoke weed. NOBODY dies from weed.
no, and it even has positive and even healthy effects.
a cigarette on the other hand is nuttin but destroying the health of your body.
you can even get sick of cigarettes, even flu.
on the other side, weed never makes you sick, oposite, it kills bacteria!
and by the way, think logical, in one hour a human can smoke to 10 or even more cigarettes, but i can't imagine smoking 10 joints in 60minutes. you would puke
people say one joint is equal to 5cigarettes , that is a very stupid claim.
maybe you smoke 1 joint within a hour (as 5 cigs)
but you smoke 10 cigarettes within a hour.
i guess the point is clear :)
marijane is queen...
I dont believe second hand Marijuana does anything bad to the baby when you are pregnant. Second hand smoke from Tobacco is infinitely worse for you than second hand Marijuana.
It's possible. The second-hand smoke can dry out your eyes making the infection worse. Marijuana is also known to be very dangerous when mixed with some medications.
Smoke. Booze is a close second.
They could get lung cancer by second hand smoke or even worse die.They could get lung cancer by second hand smoke or even worse die.
No it will make your infection worse, and besides it is illegal you know, or (at least I hope)
Of course-it's worse than cigarettes although you probably smoke less
Second hand smoke will definitly affect your child, regardless of age. Childerens' lungs are under developed compared to adults, so it will worse for the child. If you DO smoke around your child, STOP. If not, you will be charged with indangerment to a chiild, and you will go to jail
weed gets you stoned cigarettes dont get you high cigarettes suck! also if you smoke marijuana with a bong or a vapo its much healther; (most people for get that when compairing the two.)
When you smoke marijuana, there is a sudden increase then decrease in blood pressure. Hemorrhoids could therefore be affected by this. Also, marijuana has been found to affect some people's digestion (for the better or worsE), which is also linked to hemorrhoids.
its called second-hand smoking, and its worse for you than smoking (because you breathe the tobacco smoke).
Wood smoke is much worse than tobacco second hand smoke. Wood smoke contains more than twelve times as many carcinogenic compounds, and is chemically active up to forty times longer in the lungs than tobacco.
