The impact of secondhand smoke can have lasting health impacts on individuals who are continuously exposed to smoke. The United States Health and Human Services department reports that over 41,000 people die each year of lung or heart related diseases caused by exposure to secondhand smoke. In the past few decades, restaurants, airplanes, stores and most public spaces have transitioned to non-smoking establishments. Yet many continue to smoke inside their homes, putting their children and family at risk.
