Tonight I’ll spend an hour being a guinea-pig. The Sunday Herald-Sun have enlisted my help in researching the effects of passive smoking. My task is to sit on a station platform for an hour (better take a good book), not cringing away from smokers quite as much as I usually do, and then go and perform a urine test.
My reward for this joyous activity? Merely the knowledge that I’m contributing to the cause of medical science. [Cough] Buy a paper on Sunday for the results.
