Passive Smoking is Deadlier than Active Smoking by ademchij: 10:08pm On Jul 02
It's very easy to think or assume that while smoking, the person sucking up the stick of lighted cigar or cigarette is in more danger healthwise than the person who's not smoking.
Well actually, the truth is; the People who are all around the active smoker are in more health dangers than the smoker himself.
Every stick of cigarette smoked by an active smoker contains an estimated 200-2000 different toxic and harmful chemicals but only as little as 2%-20% are ingested by the active smoker. The remnant 80%-88% are ingested aerobically by the people around the active smoker.
This means a passive smoker is more at risk of cancer or health damage than the active smoker.
So when next you see your friend puffing it up tell him/her to snuff it out.

Cheers!
