Accuses EPA of manipulating data and "ignoring classic criteria for cause-and-effect relationships employed by the scientific community" in developing its ETS risk assessment. Defines ETS as composed of mainstream and sidestream smoke and discusses the chemical "nature of ETS. In discussing ETS and dose-response relationships, states that "at some dose, every chemical is a potential poison." Examines formaldehyde, benzene, toluene, benzo[a]pyrene and nicotine as a few of the specific components of ETS. Opines that assessing the health risks of ETS is very difficult. Addresses relative risk and its magnitude, as employed in EPA's risk assessment. Concludes, "had the EPA not adjusted the original data, its analysis would not have had the same outcome." Includes list of selected readings, bibliography/summary of the studies used in the risk assessment, a list of papers discussed in the assessment, and a list of "new papers."
