Wood Fire Smoke Worse Than Car Exhaust, Cigarettes

 
Posted Thursday, October 3rd 2013 @ 12pm  by Talk Radio 105.7 FM / 570 AM

BETTER TO LIVE WITH A TOBACCO SMOKER...THAN WITH SOMEONE WHO REGULARLY LIGHTS UP THEIR FIREPLACE.

THAT'S THE NEWS "UTAH PHYSICIANS FOR A HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT" DELIVERED THIS WEEK, TO STATE AIR QUALITY OFFICIALS.

GROUP PRESIDENT -- DR. BRIAN MOENCH -- SAYS, THE HARMFUL CHEMICALS IN WOOD SMOKE ARE WORSE THAN WHAT COMES FROM CIGARETTES...OR, THE BACK OF YOUR CAR.

THE GROUP GAVE AIR QUALITY PERSONNEL RECENT DATA, TO SUPPORT THEIR POSITION.

BUT D-A-Q OFFICIALS SAY THEY CAN'T SIMPLY BAN WOOD BURNING, BECAUSE HUNDREDS OF HOMES US WOOD STOVES AS THEIR PRIMARY SOURCE OF WINTER HEAT.
