Secondhand smoke (SHS) in the home is harmful to children
Smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, 60 of which are known to be carcinogenic
Even when the smoke is gone, there are toxins that linger on furnishings
SHS is proven to cause lung cancer, heart disease and stroke in adults
There is a strong link to respiratory disease, cot death, asthma attacks and middle ear infections in children
17,000 children under 5yrs are admitted to hospital every year, due to passive smoking
The children of smoking parents are more likely to take up smoking themselves
If you wish to find out more about secondhand smoke visit the NCSCT website where there is a 30 minute training module on this topic.
