Great collection. Quite compelling, much like the research on cigarettes years ago. (I think the lawyers are still making money using all those cigarette smoke discoveries).

Unfortunately the people who need to read the research (regulators and wood burners) probably won't (for awhile anyway).

I think in the interest of being fair and balanced, I would also like to see the list of scientific papers that show the harmlessness and health benefits of wood smoke.

'Health' benefits of wood smoke - an often-considered health practice:
People have been "smoking" their meats to prevent spoilage, for centuries.
The noxious chemicals in the smoke kill bacteria (and prevent re-growth.)

The thing is, they didn't realize that the chemicals were killing them as well.
Think about it: If the smoke-chemicals kill bacteria (which are cells) perhaps
smoke also kills cells in the lungs (and body, if the meat is eaten) as well?

Is this at all possible?

This is akin to tobacco smoking: people falsely reason that if they do not
immediately fall over dead from the effect of smoke, they will think of it
as being "safe" or "harmless." This is wrong-headed.

The hyperbolic statement which always takes the cake: the claim that wood
smoke is "harmless" because it "smells nice." I have actually heard this
assertion made, many times, by uninformed defenders of fireplace/ firepits.

Smoke keeps the meat from spoiling but the chemicals are so harmful to us. (Like you said woodnyet)

This is just like pesticides and herbicides they kills pests and weeds but they have the potential to make us ill and kill us too. Especailly children.

• The Surgeon General has determined that there is no safe level of exposure to ambient smoke!

• If you smell even a subtle odor of smoke, you are being exposed to poisonous and carcinogenic chemical compounds!

• Even a brief exposure to smoke raises blood pressure, (no matter what your state of health) and can cause blood clotting, stroke, or heart attack in vulnerable people. Even children experience elevated blood pressure when exposed to smoke!

• Since smoke drastically weakens the lungs' immune system, avoiding smoke is one of the best ways to prevent colds, flu, bronchitis, or risk of an even more serious respiratory illness, such as pneumonia or tuberculosis! Does your child have the flu? Chances are they have been exposed to ambient smoke!
