The Dangers of Secondhand     Smoke Exposure

  • Secondhand smoke contains more than 7,000 chemicals. Hundreds are toxic and about 70 can cause cancer. Secondhand smoke causes lung cancer in adults who have never smoked.

  • Secondhand smoke causes nearly 42,000 deaths, including more than 3,000 lung cancer deaths among nonsmoking adults each year.

  • Nonsmokers who are exposed to secondhand smoke at work increase their risk of developing lung cancer by 20–30%.

  • Nonsmokers who are exposed to secondhand smoke are inhaling many of the same cancer-causing substances as smokers.

  • Breathing secondhand smoke can have immediate adverse effects on your blood and blood vessels, increasing the risk of having a heart attack.

  • People who already have heart disease are at especially high risk of suffering adverse effects from breathing secondhand smoke and should take special precautions to avoid even brief exposures.
