My husband is an insurance man. Insurance companies are in the business of making a profit. If someone has an ailment, or an unhealthy habit, he gets "rated," that is, he pays a higher premium. Insurance companies rate smokers, but do not rate people exposed to "second-hand smoke." Why? Because it does not cause serious ailments. And, by the way, they do not take anyone's word on the subject. They conduct medical tests. If you are hell bent on attributing your ailments to second-hand smoke, then so be it. Your doctor may even agree with you. But like most of us he is lazy and just repeats what he hears, and maes no independent investigation.
Just a quick note to say hi! Just wanted to say I had my liver biopsy and the worrying was the worst part. They put me out for mine and I wasn't even sore the next day. So many have had a biopsy with similar results.
