New research proves that second-hand smoke is linked to increased risk of premature death, heart disease, ill health in children and the slow healing of wounds.
Scientists say non-smokers who live with a smoker have a 15 percent higher risk of early death than those living in smoke-free households.
Passive smoking also damages the chemical makeup of cells needed to heal wounds and accounts for abnormal scarring in second-hand smokers.
Children of parents who smoke face double the risk of certain diseases compared to children of non-smokers, even if the smoker only lights up outdoors. If indoors, the risk is 15 times higher.
