It's an ill wind... but will we ban it too?

AS a seasoned smoker, whose lung capacity has greatly improved thanks to e-cigarettes, I am disappointed that the World Health Organisation now wants proof of a negative (ie that they do no harm).

We already know inhalation of sulphurous and other gases is bad for us. To ensure coherence of policy, will it now regulate flatulence to avoid passive inhalation?

It could start by prohibiting entry to public places within four hours of eating hard boiled eggs.
