Dr. Fillipo Ferrigni makes false claim to St. Charles City Council!

Dr. Filippo Ferrigni, medical director of St. Joseph Health Center in St. Charles, made this false statement to the St. Charles City Council.

“If you’re a nonsmoking waitress working in a restaurant that allows smoking, you are essentially smoking the equivalent of 20 cigarettes throughout an eight-hour workday.”

He should either produce research to support such an absurd claim or retract his statement. Even Martin Pion of Missouri GASP admits such a claim is bogus and that health professionals should know better.
