Study from China shows more deaths from secondhand smoke
If you think you're only affecting yourself when you smoke cigarettes, you might want to think twice before you light up in a crowded area. Secondhand smoke, the by-product of cigarettes, can have negative health effects on those who inhale it. Often, people inhale secondhand smoke involuntarily.
Recently, a long-term study conducted by researchers in China revealed that secondhand smoke can increase the risk of dying from different causes, according to FOX News. Researchers examined individuals over the course of 17 years. Some of the many complications that they were most susceptible to dying of as a result of secondhand smoke were stroke and lung disease.
If you want to avoid creating hazardous secondhand smoke but still want to get your nicotine fix, consider vaping. An e-cig does not produce secondhand smoke and can give you the nicotine you want without tar and tobacco.
The American Cancer Society reports that secondhand smoke kills both adults and children who don't use cigarettes. Inhaling this by-product can also increase the risk of dying of ailments such as various types of cancer. Quitting today can help you live a dramatically healthier lifestyle.
