Why You Need an Air Purifier for Cigarette Smoke

Second-hand smoke (SHS) is a toxic brew of more than 4,000 chemicals, including over 50 known human carcinogens. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has classified SHS as a “Group A” carcinogen, a category reserved for only the most dangerous of cancer-causing compounds. Interestingly, SHS has twice as much nicotine and tar as the filtered smoke that actual smokers inhale, and five times more carbon monoxide.

FACT: Some chemical compounds found in tobacco smoke only become carcinogenic after they've come into contact with enzymes in the human body

The harmful effects of SHS are well documented. Non-smokers who live with a smoker, and are exposed to SHS on a regular basis, have a 20% to 30% higher risk of developing heart disease and lung cancer. SHS has also been linked to low fertility, miscarriages and breast cancer in women. In children, exposure to SHS is a proven cause of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), and can double the risk of getting pneumonia or bronchitis. SHS can not only trigger attacks among children with asthma, but can cause children without asthma to develop it.

Be aware that limiting smoking to one room, ventilating the house regularly or using air purification units will not totally protect non-smokers from SHS. The only way to fully protect non-smoking members of the family is to prevent all smoking in the house.
