It has come to my attention that there are so many dangers of secondhand smoke in our homes. One question I have is how dangerous is secondhand smoke for my wife and me? I am a nonsmoker, she is not; she smokes like crazy, nearly every night and sometimes when I don’t want her to.
So, now he is smoking, but indoors. How dangerous is secondhand vapor smoke for her and me? We have decided that we will quit our cigarettes and use electronic cigarettes instead. Will this be a better option? Can we still be exposed to secondhand smoke from Vaporizers and fog machines?
We live alone and don’t have many friends that smoke. My wife’s asthma has made it very difficult for her to be near other people, including our children. It has become almost impossible to take her out to the movies or even to the park. She has also become very aware of how much she fumes whenever she goes out and uses the fog machines at home. I think she is getting more distressed by it and would really appreciate any advice on what to do about her current problem.
Secondhand vapor exposure is probably more common than many people think. Our neighbor smokes a pipe and loves to sit outside and talk to us on the weekends. I guess his family wants him to start using a less toxic pipe because he has made such a mess of his first two pipes. I have no idea how much secondhand smoking he does, but it’s enough to kill him. Of course, this example is only one of the thousands of galiatsatsinos said to cause health issues in the general public.
The number one problem associated with secondhand vapor exposure is cancer. This is according to the American Cancer Society. They estimate that approximately one in twenty people who are involved with vapor tobacco or e-juice will develop some form of cancer over their lifetimes. According to galiatsinos who have used secondhand vapes, the amount of risk increases if you’re an adolescent or a pregnant woman.
Many studies have been conducted that directly correlate the increased risk of developing certain forms of cancer with the long-term use of vaporizers and cigarettes. Unfortunately, there is no way to determine whether the increased risk is caused by long-term use of either products or cigarettes or just by combining the two. However, many researchers believe that the increased cancer risk is brought about largely from the ingredients found in both tobacco and e-juice. Nicotine is addictive, and as with all drugs, it increases the risk of developing an addiction to other substances. Many researchers believe that the lack of nicotine in e-juices makes them more appealing to smokers.
There are a lot of different things that can cause harm when you inhale the vapor from any source. The concentration in some products may not be sufficient to harm you. It’s important to remember that any harm that you experience is entirely your responsibility. In general, it’s much better to err on the side of caution than it is to assume that a product is completely safe, especially when you are not sure what exactly you are ingesting or are unsure about the amount of vapor that you may be exposing yourself to.
Due to the fact that we do not know much about secondhand vapors and the long-term effects of their consumption, I strongly advise that anyone that is thinking about trying to quit smoking cigarettes or even thinking about living with a smoker should seek professional help before doing so. This is not an effort to put down the smoker or complain about his lifestyle, this is just an observation. You can have no idea how dangerous second-hand smoking is until you have done it. If I smoked outside, I don’t think I would recommend attempting to quit because there are far worse things that could happen, and you cannot make up for the damage that you have done to yourself or others.
