Active smoking is the direct inhalation of smoke by an intended smoker while passive smoking is second hand smoking. This is a situation where smoke is inhaled (from the environment) by non intended smokers. Active and passive smoking are both harmful to the body.
Their bodies might not be as immune to the effects of smoking as well as older children. But smoking is bad for anyone.
No way to have any statistic related to this issue, but certainly passive smoking is harmfull specially to children.
passive smoking has been proven to be worse than actually smoking so yes it can kill you
The risks as such are the same, but since the smoke you get into you from passive smoking is more diluted passive smoking is a bit less bad.
Secondhand smoking means the passive smoking and passive smoking is worse even than smoking cigarettes.
Smoking is harmful for everyone
Smoking is particularly harmful for Marfan patients because it increases their risk of emphysema.
I would imagine so.
if you walk pass someone smoking and you inhale some of the smoke it will be the same as smoking but not harmful if you quickly get away from the person smoking. if your close friends smoke and your passive smoking nearly most of your days then this will be the same as smoking and will lead to poor lungs and a weaker heart so i recommend when you see someone smoke and your walking pass them , get pass them as quick as possible. And if your friends do smoke convince them to quit to make the world a better healthier place :)
