The Truth About Smoking
By: Natalie Johnson
Second smoke is very dangerous. It is even a cause of sudden infant death syndrome. 3 million kids in the United States breathe in second hand smoke at home. 32 million are exposed. This causes kids to be more likely to be overweight and have behavioral problems. Kids can get bronchitis and pneumonia easier then children who sent around second hand smoke. It is common for kids around smoke to cough and wheeze. It also makes them at a risk for lung cancer and heart disease.
E-cigarets only help bystanders. In reality it's just another way to put nicotine into your body. Technically it's even worse then normal cigarettes. You get an unhealthy dose of chemicals that are worse then tobacco. One chemical is called carcinogenic. This chemical contains lung cancer cells. That means it doesn't stop the risk of getting cancer.
