Overheard: Jeremy Irons against smoking bans

Secondhand smoke may kill 1 in 100 people worldwide each year, and harm unborn babies, but some people are still in favor of allowing smoking everywhere.

Actor Jeremy Irons, for instance, doesn't think people should be restricted from lighting up in public places. Irons told Parade that such bans are "appalling" and are effectively "bullying a minority."

Because if you say, ‘I really think I should have the right to smoke in the street or in the park or at the beach,’ people will say, ‘You shouldn't be smoking at all. It’s bad for you.’ Well, I think we can choose what’s bad for us. I mean, there are many other things in life that are bad for us. Being surrounded by boring people is very bad for us - it attacks the heart. And being surrounded by mass consumerism, as one is in most urban areas, is bad for you, making you believe that if you buy something, it'll make you happy. But all those things people are allowed to get away with.”

But boring and people and mass consumerism don't cause cancer, do they?
