Cigs and Cows

A fine essay on why we North Americans go mad banning cigarettes as a precaution, yet continue to ignore (and evade) many more sensible precautionary steps we could take on the food chain or in the environment. And why Europe seems to take the exact opposite tack.

When we North Americans find out that smoking is bad for us, our inner Puritans rise to the challenge with a self-righteousness and commitment that we would never apply to heavy metals in the environment.
