Raise Awareness of Second-Hand Smoking


I was recently contacted by someone who wanted help with a great cause. He’s written something and asked me to post it, so here it is:

Hello everyone. I wrote this paragraph to try to raise awareness of the dangers of second-hand smoking through the generous help of this blog.

Second-hand smoking is very dangerous due to the fact that it is known to cause serious medical problems. One reason that second-hand smoke is so dangerous is because exposure to it is known to cause many cancers. Second-hand smoke contains hundreds of harmful chemicals, with over 60 of them being known to cause cancers such as lung, brain, breast, stomach, and other various cancers. Second-hand smoking is especially dangerous to infants and pregnant women since it can greatly harm the children. Exposure to second-hand smoke while pregnant can cause complications like premature delivery, and a low birth weight since the toxins from the smoke can reach the baby. When the baby’s already born, being exposed to second-hand smoke greatly increases the chance of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) as well as respiratory problems such as asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, and other issues since their developing lungs are especially vulnerable. Besides being highly dangerous, second-hand smoke is very difficult to remove from the air. Common methods such as purifiers, filters, or proper air circulation will not completely remove second-hand smoke from the air, allowing it to still affect people. Second-hand smoke causes many medical issues, and people need to be more aware of its dangers.

Thank you all for reading this, and if you haven’t, that’s okay. If you don’t want to read it all, at least skim it a little bit and become more aware of second-hand smoking. I have a Facebook page made to try to raise awareness of second-hand smoking which can be found at https://www.facebook.com/Passivesmoking. Please try to spread the word by liking the Facebook page, spreading the word and showing others this article or the page.
