    1. When you’re watching a show like Gaslit or The Crown, you are supposed to accept that the story is true in a broad sense, not a specific one. You are not meant to question the difference between nonfiction and a story that’s been “lightly” fictionalized. And you are definitely not supposed to be on Wikipedia, trying to cross-reference the real history against the one you’re seeing on Starz.

    1. Living in cities like Beijing and Delhi is comparable to smoking over 30 cigarettes a day

      This claim lacks citation or calculation. If, as is more often assumed, microparticles (PM2.5) are the main culprit in air pollution, the claim sounds hugely exaggerated. Even with beyond-index pollution records of almost \(1mg/m^3\) in Beijing (see e.g. Wikipedia), total microparticle (PM2.5) intake would be: $$15,000 liter/day * 1mg/1000liter = 15mg/day$$ This would be a bit more than one cigarette per day, not 30.

      See this post or this Q/A for more elaborate discussions on this question.
