Dr. Ronald Gots is a physician and toxicologist who ran an environmental and occupational health consulting firm in Bethesda, Maryland, in the 1990s. He was Chairman of the Science Advisory Board of the Total Environmental Air Quality Coalition (TIEQ), an organization made up of companies that favored a "building systems approach" to indoor air quality" as opposed to a "source control" approach. This means TIEQ supported trying to keep indoor air clean through ventilation, instead of advocating measures aimed at controlling indoor air pollution sources, such as smoking restrictions. This was a point of view favored by the tobacco industry in matters regarding secondhand smoke, also known as environmental tobacco smoke.
