Secondhand Smoke

Smoking cessation can be beneficial for not only the smoker but others that meet the smoker. Taking steps to quit smoking can reduce not only the smoker’s likelihood of future health problems but their loved one’s as well.

Since 1964, approximately 2,500,000 nonsmokers have died from health problems caused by exposure to secondhand smoke. We can reduce the number by not infecting ourselves or our loved ones.

How to protect your loved ones from second hand smoke:

• Make sure caretakers like nannies, babysitters, and day care staff do not smoke.

• Reduce the amount of secondhand smoke your family breathes in.

• Avoid indoor public places that allow smoking.

• Don’t allow smoking in the car or household.
