What are the effects of second hand smoke on children?

Shouldn't it be illegal to smoke around them?

Second hand smoke is very bad for children. They can get eye irritations and respiratory problems. Lots of scientifical research has been conducted that has proven you should never smoke around them... yes it should be illegal.


Answer by  Workingperson (12)

Second hand smoke is very unhealthy for children. There are several issues that can arise due to long exposure to this kind of enviroment. Suche issues are asthma and alergies. Worse yet, it could cause lung cancer. Parents should not smoke anywhere near their children. They should put their children first. I don't think it should be illegal.

Both my parents smoked while I was growing up and I do not have any problems due to them smoking. But now adays you just don't know for sure. I have read that ear infections could be the result of second hand smoke.

Second hand smoke can cause many problems, including breathing issues like asthma, allergies, coughing, and more. Children could feel sick more often and dislike the smell of cigarettes on their clothing. A lot of children of smokers have health issues, and it is best to quit if you have kids.
