Russian health officials are proposing to ban smoking among people born after 2015.
A University of Glasgow-led research proves that household pets are more exposed to passive smoking-related health risks than humans.
Stanford researchers found that passive smoking did not have a clear link to increased lung cancer risk.
A new study suggests that inhaling secondhand smoke may raise the chances of severe dementia in people. Passive smoking, also known as environmental tobacco smoke (ETS), is already known to cause serious cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, along with coronary heart disease and lung cancer. But then, due to lack of research, it was not known until now if it also increases the risk of dementia, even though certain studies previously have associated ETS and cognitive impairment.
According to a new study, heavy concentrations of secondhand smoke in places usually filled with smoke, such as bars and cars, can lead to airway restriction for bystanders within minutes of exposure.
