@Bhutan - I agree. I recently heard that second hand smoke risks include the potential for developing breast cancer and heart disease. I was even reading that according to the American Cancer Society, about three quarter of American children develop a middle ear infection which could be directly traced to second hand smoke.
Second hand smoke regarding children is really scary. They are more prone to developing sudden infant death syndrome and developing asthma due to reduced lung capacity.
I always tell my kids how bad smoking is and how it can make your lungs black. They are always surprised when they do see someone smoking because they don’t understand how someone could continue to smoke knowing how bad it is for them.
I think that second hand smoke risks are very real and I am glad that more aggressive laws are on the books to reduce public smoking.
