Passive Smoking and its Dangers

With a new advertising campaign being shown in England highlighting the effects of passive smoking (SHS/”second hand smoke”) on children in homes and vehicles, now is the time to quit smoking for good to protect your little ones from potential health problems in the future.

Professor Sally Davis, the Government’s chief medical officer, has expressed concern that much of the general public are still unaware of the significant of the dangers of passive smoking on children. Recent studies and research show that it costs the NHS £23million every year to treat children both at GP practices and hospitals with illnesses caused by the effects of smoking. The most common issues reported are those involving breathing difficulties, as well as ear diseases and other conditions.
