Hey there, brother.

The fact of second hand smoke is that half the scientific community
says it's udder rubbish and the other half says it's just the same as
smoking.  Now, with science, if the results are inconclusive, that is
to say, to have a 50/50 split, then using the scientific method, we
can not conclude that second hand smoke is harmful.  For if we ignore
the scientific method, then a lot of other rubbish should be accepted,
as well.

Check out forces.org, it may open your eyes.
