19 UICC Initiative Children and second-hand smoke exposure Second-hand smoke (SHS), also known as environmental tobacco smoke, consists of both the smoke that is exhaled from the lungs of smokers and the smoke that is given off by a burning tobacco product between puffs.Only 100% smoke-free environments protect your childrenEven brief exposures can be harmful.A single cigarette smoked in a room with poor ventilation generates much higher concentrations of toxic substances in the air than normal, everyday activities in a city.
20 UICC Initiative Children and second-hand smoke exposure The air quality found inside a car with someone smoking is similar to or worse than the air quality found in smoky pubs.Exposure to second-hand smoke in children increases risk of: Low birth weight Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Ear infections Poor lung development Bronchitis and pneumonia Asthma, cough, and wheezeBeing exposed to second-hand smoke as a child may lead to respiratory problems later in life.
21 UICC Initiative Children and second-hand smoke exposure Even if smoking is banned in all public places, this approach will not protect children from second-hand smoke in the home.Exposure in the home is the most important source of exposure to second-hand smoke for young children.Educational efforts that warn smokers about the harmful effects of second-hand smoke and smoking while pregnant can influence the behavior of parents and help to quit smoking.Demand all indoor public places to be 100% smoke-free.
