Can people that don’t smoke be affected by the tobacco smoke?
Cigarette smokers are not the only ones who suffer because they smoke that poison. non -smokers will have to deal with second-hand or secondary smoke. Secondary smoke is smoke inhaled involuntarily from tobacco being smoked by others. Inhaling this secondary smoke is extremely bad for you and can lead to lung cancer and other horrible problems such as heart disease and asthma attacks in asthmatics. In the United States of America, roughly three thousand adults die every year to lung cancer due to secondary smoke. Secondary smoke is not the only problem of being around a smoker. For instance, if your partner were a smoker, you would have to put up with their disgusting breath, yellow-stained teeth, the old looking wrinkly skin at a young age and the vile stench of cigarette smoke following them everywhere they go.
Spending your time around smokers increases your chances of starting to smoke. Children are among the most vulnerable of people to start smoking. Studies have shown that children at the age of twelve with parents who smoke cigarettes are twice as likely to smoke every day between the ages of 13 and 21. Although as a parent you can’t completely hide that you smoke from your children, you can avoid letting them see it happen by smoking outside and at all costs making them avoid any sort of contact with cigarettes, thus hopefully not getting them to start smoking.
