A new term has been coined to address the dangers linked to the lingering effects of cigarette and cigar smoke. There has been a lot of research on the effect of second hand smoke (and the results show that second hand smoke is actually just as dangerous as being a smoker yourself), but now a new term – "third hand smoke" – is used to address the chemicals that sink into surfaces and potentially could cause health concerns.
It turns out that the chemicals created by tobacco smoke tend to stick around in you home, car or on your clothing and can actually contribute to creating the same health conditions for non-smokers that usually only affect smokers. Children and infants are at the highest risk when exposed to third hand smoke – watch this report and find out why!
