Prof Romano Grieshaber

H/T Harley for this just-about-readable Google translation from French of an article in Les Dissidents de Geneve :

The so-called “passive smoking lethal” is a lie: a book proves it!

Wednesday, April 4, 2012 1:36 | Written by Candidus |

(DDG-jaw): A famous German professor of medicine, Professor. Romano Griesshaber, (pictured cons) responsible for the area ‘Prevention’ from the ‘Union for food and gastronomy, had been fighting for its life against the lie of “passive smoking lethal” , legend clobbered by anti-smoking advertising in the hotel and catering.

Under intense pressure from his employer and his peers, he had finally decided to be silent on pain of losing his job.

Now retired from his professorship for applied prevention and health promotion at the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena, he can finally speak freely (as Prof.. Philippe Even, Paris Hospitals that qualify that “passive smoking lethal” to “absolute scam.”

Prof. Romano Griesshaber demonstrates in his book (in German only) “Passive smoking … Damnation of the Gods of Science” behind the lie of “passive smoking” and lethal methods used to spread globally, thus generating prohibition laws based on lies.

A friend is addressed in these terms to the public and fellow fighters: “We had to wait longemps. Now it is finally retired, Prof.. Dr. med. Romano Grieshaber can finally speak freely:

“On the question of whether passive smoking is harmful to health, it is generally believed That a response was made unequivocally. However, during my research on prevention, I have not found such a response. Quite the contrary! “Signed: Prof.. Romano Grieshaber.

Dr. Romano Grieshaber

The work of Prof.. Romano Grieshaber, on sale in Germany, should soon be on the market in Switzerland. It contains nine chapters:

(The translation of the texts below should be followed in a few days. Jaw)

There’s a long review in German after it (here just-about-readably translated by Google):

Review by Tim Cole ( Critique de l’ouvrage)

If we do here on czsylansky.net already spoiled with all the do-gooders and do-gooders want, then we must not forget the militant Non smoking. The bullheaded and stubborn curmudgeons of the ÖDP and other ideologues clubs have managed our peace-loving smokers to tobacco use by popular vote to ruin so thoroughly that it is now considered anti-social outsider feels when you light on his own balcony a cigar. They have ensured that we are locked at airports in smoke-filled glass cages and must close ranks on platforms as narrow, yellow-marked Absperrzonen to indulge our filthy vices under the reproachful gaze of honest citizens. They have denigrated as addicts and ensure that we have to freezing in front of office buildings or pubs, so they gotten just so none of our Zasterqualm, because as everyone knows, is the second-hand smoke is one of the greatest threats to life and limb of an innocent Non smoking may threaten: A couple of times taken a deep breath, and the desire to have lung cancer, his ominous proliferation.

Absolute rubbish – but effective!

How do I know? Because I was just a new book by Prof. Romano Grieshaber as a review copy on the table: ” Passive smoking – Twilight of the gods of science“(Publikom Z-Verlag). And the good Professor really brings out the sweeping blow to expose the lie-hand smoke. There is no single scientific investigation durable, able to demonstrate a genuine threat by bystanders smoldering colleagues in offices and pubs, he says. In reality, would have otherwise honorable scientists in such institutions as the German Cancer Research Center(DKFZ) and the World Health Organization ( WHO) Of narrow-minded anti-smoking fundamentalists kidnap and can be misleading in “a kind of faith stamp, in which scientific studies probably have to meet more needs than quasireligösen scientific claims.”

Now one might reply yes the other hand, that the good professor himself was probably more of a drooling spinner who just happens to be one denomination of tobacco lovers. First, and was Grieshaber, as he writes himself, his life Non smoking. But above all: he was the leader responsible for the prevention and research of food and catering trade association(BGN), and thus one of the leading experts on health, which is available in Germany. Just to make the list of its activities fully honorable: He is a professor for Applied Prevention and Health Promotion at the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena, a board member of the Research Institute for Applied System Safety and Health(FSA), a member of the International Social Security Association (ISSA) and CEO of the Center for Interdisciplinary Prevention (KIP) of the University of Jena. Oh yes, he studied in Heidelberg Medicine and is director of the ” Erfurt days”One of the most important occupational health specialist conferences on respiratory diseases.

Grieshaber has, as he writes, his professional life exploring causal relationships at work-related health hazards and described. And this man claims that there is no proven link between secondhand smoke and lung disease pathway. Who says that is lying (which he does not write like that, but it is implicit in almost any of the 280 pages of his book). The anti-smoking simply believe that it is so, so they claim it as well. And since it is apparently politically incorrect to believe it, no one dares to say otherwise. Whoever does so anyway, is made either muzzled or marginalized. As a scientist, it could mean the end of the career, because higher education is the network of anti-smoking Taliban linked very closely, as he had 2007 experience at a symposium he had organized at the University of Mannheim, in order to initiate a dialogue between the two camps and where he was shouted down simply.

This is also the reason why only now Grieshaber wrote his book – namely, he is retired. And the book is really worth reading – not just showing off because, as political decisions are made on the basis of half-baked or fictitious reports and studies, but also because it gives a deep insight into the workings of reputable scientists who are engaged in the field of prevention and protection measures seek to provide evidence.

Militant opponents smoke assume that each soft breath of secondhand smoke causes serious health problems already. They are calling for complete smoke-free workplace and in the pub. “Only the zero-exposure ensures health,” he quoted a scripture from the DKFZ, where it also says: “This should be achieved. No matter how cleverly ventilation system you get to the same effect. “

Strangely, the demand for total prohibition applies only to smoke. In any other hazardous materials science class works with limit values or orientation. This applies, for example, just for particulate matter in the traffic area such as flour dust in bakeries – an area where Grieshaber knows very well thanks to decades of practical experience.

Grieshaber also questioned the figures, which throw smoke opponent around. For example, claims the DKFZ, the former head Prof. Harald zur Hausen, after all, the 2008 Nobel Prize for Medicine was awarded in 2006’s and since then over and over again cited publication that in Germany every year more than 3000 people die from the effects of passive smoking . Prof. Katja RadonUniklinium from Munich said to have claimed, according to the Mannheim Symposium Grieshaber, have been demonstrated in lung cancers at a significantly higher risk than employees in the catering office workers. Be of the employees of most companies, such as smoke-filled nightclubs, bars and Einraumkneipen it to as many as 22 of 1000, the disease over the course of a forty-year career at Lungenkebs.

Unfortunate that Grieshaber knows the real numbers. According to statistics, there are no obvious BGN increased numbers of patients for lung cancer among waiters – rather the opposite: a direct comparison with dozens of other occupations are waiter even those with the lowest proportion of disease cases ever!

The woman radon and her colleagues has not prevented from issuing to the Mannheim symposium, a press release in which they are required to implement an immediate implementation of its proposals, which amount to an outright ban on smoking at work in the hospitality industry. Grieshaber quotes the press release as saying: “It is scientifically no need to conduct further studies and defer decisions to have.”

It is this unscientific (it might even call it anti-scientific) brings stubbornness, the Grieshaber on the palm. Not that he really believes to be able to change that. The anti-smoking laws in Germany and much of the world are, and no one will seriously have the political will to revoke it. What politician likes to say: “Oops, sorry – we were wrong”?

But the Professor hopes to be able to shake the conscience of his colleagues. The demand for factual accuracy of scientific results, which are the basis of laws and constitutional decisions, such as the SNB used in terms of smoker protection is an important and legitimate demand. Prevention is only possible if the true causes of disease are known. Note: Do not second-hand smoke, but bigotry threatens the health!

As I remarked to Harley: why is it that we have to wait for these guys to retire before they speak up?

Maybe some of our German and Swiss friends will get hold of this book soon, and tell us more about it.

P.S. Les Dissidents de Geneve also had a link to an article by Robert Molimard about smoking and tobacco. Molimard is also a dissident professor.

    Glad to read about Grieshaber here! :-)

    A humble glossary:
    Absperrzonen = shut away zones
    Zasterqualm = (?? no clue; “qualm” at least ist smoke)
    Einraumkneipen = single room pubs
    Lungenkrebs = lung cancer
    “The woman radon” = Frau Radon, Mrs. Radon

    Maybe some of our German and Swiss friends will get hold of this book soon, and tell us more about it.
    (Not to forget the Austrian)

    Yeah, some of us had an interesting meeting just last weekend and had a look at it.
    Very good stuff indeed!

    My, if only my English was a bit better!
    If I were a translater, I’d gladly translate the whole book into English as quick as I could.

      P.S.: Grüezi nach Basel!

    • Frank Davis says:

      Your English, dear Reinhold, is one hundred times better than my German. No, make that two hundred times better. ;-)

      Perhaps you might think about producing a summary of the key points in the book, with translations of one or two passages. I’d be happy to help out. I’ve done that with Klaus a couple of times, by email. Brigitte might be able to help too. And you could publish it here as a guest post.

      • reinholdfrombavaria says:

        This really makes me proud, especially since I already know that my English is better than Jredheadgirl’s German too, as she revealed to me once before.
        Wow, haha. ;-)

        Perhaps you might think about producing a summary of the key points in the book, with translations of one or two passages.

        O.k., I’ll try (with a little help from my friends).

        The book deserves it.

        But it may take a couple of days.

        Would you kindly send me an e-mail, Frank – you have my address while I don’t have yours.

    • beobrigitte says:

      Reinhold, what is the german title of the book? I would like to order it asap!!

      P.S.: Grüezi nach Basel!
      Auch von mir!

      • beobrigitte says:

        It would be my pleasure to be of as much help to Reinhold as possible.

        • Frank Davis says:

          Then would you like me to give Reinhold your email address?

        • reinholdfrombavaria says:

          I’d appreciate your help werri matsch, Brigitte, especially in translating some typical German long-words, such as:

          Nichtraucherschutzgesetzgebung
          etc.

          Can I have a go? Using Google translate, of course.

          Absolutheitsanspruch: Demanding absolute safety.
          Menschenverbesserungsprogramm: Human improvement program.
          Unterdrückungsmaßnahmen: Suppression measures.
          Einschüchterungsversuche: Intimidation.

        • beobrigitte says:

          Then would you like me to give Reinhold your email address?
          Yes, please!

          May I correct Google translate?

          Weiterbildungsermächtigung: ‘Weiterbildung’ is further education; ‘Ermächtigung’ is legally empowerment.

          Nichtraucherschutzgesetzgebung: Non-smoker’s protection legislation

          Einschüchterungsversuche: attempting to intimidate

          @Reinhold, DANKE!

    Frank WTG! An excellent post and in such short time……well done.

    Something I found very interesting :

    That means to me,smoking has that protective effect we keep hearing about! ehh

    • A book written on the great hoax by a professor will definately bend some ears and it puts the great hoax even more in the forefront. I wonder will any media group pick it up and run with it.

      The first sign of an avalanche is a pebble hitting the waters edge………..

    It was a simple cut-and-paste job. But I actually can move my ass pretty fast when I want to.

    Frank, I didn’t know you keep a donkey!

    “The so-called “passive smoking lethal” is a lie”

    Indeed!!!
    The antis talk of the risk of death for never-smokers that have been exposed to SHS/ETS; but, when you compare their chances of NOT dying from lung cancer or heart disease, as compared to those never-exposed,you get less scary numbers.

    A never-smoker that has been exposed to SHS/ETS has at least 99.95% of the never-exposed’s chances of NOT dying from lung cancer or heart disease.

    That is about as close to the same chance as you can get!!!

    Death rates for those that have never been exposed are 2/10,000(lung cancer) and 14/10,000(heart disease).

    Those exposed have a 25% increased risk and their death rates are 2,5/10,000 and 17.5/10,000.

    NOT DYING
    9,997.5/10,000 vs 9,998/10,000 = 99.995%

    9,982.5/10,000 vs 9,986/10,000 = 99.96%
