Secondhand Smoke

Smoking doesn’t just affect smokers; it can affect the health of people around them. Secondhand smoke, also called environmental tobacco smoke, includes smoke from the end of a burning cigarette, pipe, or cigar and smoke that is exhaled by the smoker. Secondhand smoke is particularly dangerous to kids, who are more likely to get bronchitis, pneumonia, ear infections, and asthma when they are around it.

Here are tips for avoiding secondhand smoke:

• Ask family members and visitors not to smoke in your home or car (especially if there are kids around).

• Politely avoid situations in which others may smoke around you. Don’t spend time with people while they are smoking. Tere is no safe level of exposure to cigarette smoke.

Secondhand smoke can cause children to get bronchitis, ear infections, and asthma.
