On September 22 every year, Rose Day is observed, for all the people all over the world who are battling cancer. One way in which we can cut down on cancers such as lung cancer, is by reducing the passive smoke that we inhale.

“A smoker’s wife, children or anybody in the room or surroundings inhale the second-hand smoke released by the smoker. This is how passive smoking occurs. Passive smoking causes more chance of heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and lung cancer in wives of smokers,” says Dr. P. T. James, HOD, Pulmonary Medicine, Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, Kochi.
