Second Hand Smoking: Irreversible
Second hand smoking is very dangerous and it is more dangerous than believed.
Passive smoking causes lasting damage to children’s arteries, prematurely ageing their blood vessels by more than three years, say researchers.
Listen to this … These damages increase your child’s risk of heart disease causing higher risk of heart attack and stroke; and if this doesn’t make you want to quit, then nothing else will.
Be assured that ultrasounds have been produced to demonstrate how children with parents both smoking in the house develops some changes in the wall of the main artery that runs up the neck to the head.
Smoke can stay in the air for up to two and a half hours even with a window open
It may still be there even if you can’t see it or smell it
Second-hand smoke contains more than 4,000 chemicals, some of which are known to cause cancer
Children who breathe in second-hand smoke have an increased risk of asthma and coughs and colds, as well as cot death, meningitis and ear infections
