Sharing someone’s smoke can cost you your health. It has been proven that the trail of smoke from a cigarette can actually cause an increased risk of smoking-related disease for non-smokers. Cutting smoking out of public places like pubs and restaurants can help to avoid spreading the harmful effects of smoke, but in some areas the smoking ban has caused many businesses to close and added to the count of the currently unemployed.
Will a ban on smoking in your own home follow soon? California, the first state to embrace a ban on smoking, is already targeting apartments, condominiums and cars as "public" spaces where cigarettes should be permanently extinguished. Considering that lighting up at home is more likely to expose young children to cigarette smoke, this might be the next step in keeping the public healthy. Whether the smoking ban ever hits homes or not, one way to keep your family healthy and cut down on smoke is through the installation of a home smoke eater. Just be certain that it is a guaranteed smoke eater, so that you know what you are buying will work.
