Medical Reasons on Secondhand Smoke

The concern with smoking 

  • Heart disease is the most publicized health problem concerning secondhand smoke, but there are others as well.
  • Secondhand smoke can cause the same problems that smokers get from smoke.
  • Secondhand smoke can cause lung cancer, lung aliments, emphysema, bronchitis, and asthma.

  • People who live in the same household as a smoker who are not smokers themselves have a higher risk of 20-30% of getting lung cancer than those non-smokers living with other non-smokers

  • Non-smokers who are exposed to cigarette smoke at work have an increased chance of getting lung cancer by 16-19%.
