Ironhorse,

Great parallel.  Burning "stuff" is a quick solution used too many places in the world.  When the fire is out, the stuff is gone and out of mind.  But what is out of mind oftimes becomes the stuff in the lungs, the bloodstream, the organs and cells.

As for the scented candles, hopefully the proliferation of LED "fake" candles on the store shelves this year lead to fewer scented candles that must be endured.  A Christmas wish for 2013 and beyond?

My point is 3 fold:

"Burning stuff" is how nature does it.  [I've been presented lake sediment data showing prehistoric fire events were quite periodic (every 25-27 years)]

It doesn't go away.

We evolved eating and breathing it.  (we didn't evolve eating grains)
