Second Hand Smoke and Lung Cancer

Second hand smoke kills. It causes lung cancer. It causes other deadly diseases such as, asthma, emphysema, heart disease, etc.

The Dangers Of Smoking

It is a known fact which tobacco manufacturers cannot disprove.

If you smoke, you expose those around you to second hand smoke.

If you smoke, you probably find it hard to kick the habit. Not even if you are aware of the many dangers of smoking.

Not even if you know that smoking and lung cancer are often associated with each other.

But here's the thing.

Every time that you light up a cigarette around your kid at home, you actually let loose more than 4,000 chemicals in the air around you. At least 43 of these chemicals cause cancer.

Here's A Few Of These Deadly Chemicals

  • Acetone - A colorless solvent used primarily in paints and varnishes
  • Ammonia - A pungent water-soluble gas used in the manufacture of fertilizers
  • Benzene - A toxic and colorless aromatic compound
  • Formaldehyde - A carcinogenic water-soluble gas which is used as a preservative

You probably think that the smoke wafting from the tip of your cigarette will just disappear.


Not so. Doesn't happen that way.

The volume of smoke you just inhaled puts you at great risk already. It's a given.

Second Hand Smoke Is More Toxic

However, what's terrifying is that the tobacco smoke now drifting toward your kid is even more toxic.

If your spouse happens to be a non-smoker, chances are, he is at a greater risk of having lung cancer.

Studies show that children exposed to passive tobacco smoke face serious health risks. If you don't stop smoking, your child is at great risk of having any of the following:

  • Asthma attack
  • Bronchitis
  • Pneumonia
  • Ear Infections

Second hand smoke lowers your child's resistance to bacterial infections.
