I call BS. Google it and try to find one instance of it happening. Maybe a few hysterical people dies from a panic attack caused by cigarette smoke.
Hey, why let the facts get in the way of an sensational emotionally appealing story ?
I’m a former smoker, started at eighteen years while in the Navy, smoked for eleven years and got to the point it was three packs a day and sometimes a few more. I finally quit at 29 years and now I can’t stand the smell of a cigarette but I have never known of anyone who was so sensitive that a whiff of smoke endangered his life.
