Selfish smokers

Why should a smoking ban be scrapped just because smokers are too selfish even to care about the health of their own children?

"Bans in bars may induce smokers to spend more time at home, and therefore expose other members of the household, especially children [to more tobacco smoke]." - Dr Jerome Adda, University College London.

Ridiculous. Parents who subject their children to passive smoking should be charged with reckless endangerment to life. My parents smoked when I was a kid and I've had a bad chest since childhood.
