Secondhand smoke is a mixture of smoke coming from the burning tips of cigarettes, pipes and cigars, and smoke exhaled by smokers. Someone who doesn't smoke and is around secondhand smoke breathes in the chemicals from the tobacco smoke.
On average, children are exposed to more secondhand smoke than nonsmoking adults.
The only way to protect your family from secondhand smoke is to live in 100 percent smoke-free environments. You can help protect your family.
If any adult in your home smokes and is not ready to quit, only allow smoking outside.
