Study of health affects on Smokers v none smokers EVOS workers after the EXXON VALDEs Oil spill by Riki Ott, Ph D.
all are going to love this quote from "Sound Truth and Corporate Myths: The LEGACY of the
EXXON VALDEZ Oil Spill" by Riki Ott, Ph D. It basically says that smokers did much better than non-smokers.

Worker Health Survey

During summer 2002 Annie O’Neill, a graduate student at Yale
Medical School’s Department of Epidemiology and Public Health,
conducted an internship with ACAT and AFER, the two nonprofit
organizations investigating the health effects of the EVOS
(Exxon Valdez Oil Spill) cleanup. She conducted independent research
on Exxon’s cleanup and an investigation of self-reported chronic
health problems among EVOS cleanup workers for her master’s thesis. [...]

She found EVOS workers in jobs with high oil exposure to oil
fumes,mists, and aerosols have a greater prevalence of self-reported
symptoms of respiratory problems, neurological problems and
chemical sensitivities than unexposed workers.Among workers with
high oil exposure, nonsmokers reported a greater prevalence of
symptoms of chronic bronchitis than smokers.Symptoms of chronic
airway disease included sleep apnea, pneumonia, other lung condi-
tions, chronic sinus and/or ear problems, asthma, persistent hoarse-
ness. [end quote]

Ahh, the thin mucus layer coating the lungs that is created from smoking. Perfect.

The smokers could have just thought it was from smoking and not reported

If you just think about where the most opposition to smoking is coming from. The same ones that don't want us to take herbs and vitamins. The same ones that won't let us find a cancer cure, you can be arrested or killed for this. Most Drs. don't think I smoke and I have been smoking since I was 14. I am very careful to prevent chemical exposure, even bleach, I don't keep it in the house. Too heavy of smoking and yes I can feel bad, so I make myself slow down, then I am fine. I smoke the natural native brands without the additives.
I am a Human first and foremost.
