Description

Environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) also known as passive smoking and secondhand smoke, is one of the leading sources of indoor air pollution when a smoker is present. Tobacco smoke is a complex mixture of over 4000 compounds, some of these compounds cause cancer.

The environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) respiratory health risk assessment completed in 1992, concluded that ETS accounts for 3,000 of lung cancer deaths each year in nonsmokers and also affects health of thousands.

Smoking is currently not allowed in most UK public places however the health risk associated in homes still remains. To eliminate the risk of exposure it is advisable not to smoke in your home, particularly near children. For any reason if smoking cannot be avoided smoke ventilates the room or use smoke scrubbers or air purifiers for ETS.
