Human Exceptionalism

SHS Blog Found to be Dangerous to Health

When I started Secondhand Smoke, I thought I was providing a good forum for learning and discussion. I had no idea it could be dangerous. From the story:

You really can be bored to death, scientists discover

Boredom could be shaving years off your life, scientists have found. Researchers say that people who complain of boredom are more likely to die young, and that those who experienced ‘high levels’ of tedium are more than two-and-a-half times as likely to die from heart disease or stroke than those satisfied with their lot.

I apologize sincerely to the families of SHSers whose lives may have been cut short by reading this blog.
