Risks Related to Secondhand Smoke (SHS)

By Robbster

Secondhand smoke (SHS) causes premature disease and death in nonsmokers, including heart disease and lung cancer.

The Surgeon General has concluded that no risk-free level of SHS exposure exists; the only way to fully protect nonsmokers is to completely eliminate smoking in indoor spaces.

Studies have determined that levels of airborne particulate matter in restaurants, bars, and other hospitality venues and levels of SHS exposure among nonsmoking hospitality employees decrease substantially and rapidly after implementation of laws that prohibit smoking in indoor workplaces and public places.
