What is passive smoking?
Is it accurate to say that it is hurtful?
Albeit passive smoking is not as hurtful as smoking, it is still destructive and has been demonstrated to cause:
• cancer of the lung, throat and voice box
• heart sickness and heart assault
• narrowing of the veins bringing on poor circulation in your hands, legs and feet
• diseases of the aviation routes
Efforts to help curb smoking especially among the native population have been on the increase, and the Australian government alongside other institutions has continued to devise effective strategies to reduce the numbers of smokers. It is without doubt that if different organisations put their minds together at addressing tobacco, results will be commendable.
Educating the society on the effects of smoking and funding projects that help reduce smokers will significantly reduce numbers.
