2nd & 3rd Hand Smoke - By Mayo Clinic staff
Secondhand smoke poses additional risks for children, who are especially vulnerable to the effects of secondhand smoke. Problems include:
Low birth weight. Exposure to secondhand smoke during pregnancy increases the risk of low birth weight.
Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Secondhand smoke increases the risk of SIDS — whether exposure occurs during pregnancy or after birth.
Infections. Children who live with smokers are more likely to develop middle ear infections (otitis media) and lower respiratory tract infections.
Secondhand smoke also causes chronic coughing, phlegm and wheezing, as well as eye and nose irritation.
MayoClinic.com from Richard D. Hurt, M.D.
"Third-hand" smoke refers to the cigarette byproducts that cling to smokers' hair and clothing as well as to household fabrics, carpets and surfaces — even after secondhand smoke has cleared. Doctors coined the term to raise awareness about the danger these invisible tobacco toxins pose to small children, who are especially susceptible because they breathe near, crawl on, play on, touch and mouth contaminated surfaces.
