Prof. Michael Siegel of Boston University’s School of Public Health on April 7th crowned the St. Louis University Tobacco Prevention Center the winner of the Most Ridiculous Secondhand Smoke Health Claim Tournament for claiming that “arsenic, benzene, carbon monoxide, Plutonium 210 and a host of other poisons are in secondhand smoke,” when in fact “Plutonium 210” does not exist in the known universe.
