A MISSED HEADLINE:

YES! SECOND-HAND SMOKE CAUSES CANCER

4,000 chemicals have been identified in
second hand tobacco smoke,
250 are known to be harmful,
50 of these are known to cause cancer.

EVEN WHEN YOUR SITTING IN “NON SMOKING” YOU ARE SUFFERING THE EFFECTS OF SECOND-HAND SMOKE.

Both public health and social justice demand that we focus more on the things that cause cancer. SECOND-HAND SMOKE IS THE EASIEST OF ALL TO ELIMINATE.

And we must especially for children.

Children are different from adults. Pound for pound, children eat more food, drink more water, and breathe more air than adults. Thus, they are likely to be exposed to substances in their environment at higher levels than are adults. Exposure to toxicants may result in irreversible damage, even though the same exposure to a mature system may result in little or no damage.

But in the larger picture we must look at the road to less cancer. We must look to our environment where there are common place cancer causing environmental exposures.

The environment of today is the proverbial mirror for human health. Our role is charged with reducing the unnecessary and preventable exposures that have taken on the everyday landscape in our own lives those known to have caused cancer and those we suspect to have caused cancer.

Second-Hand smoke is not just a bad smell…there are outcomes to exposures to include cancer.
