"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. Children of smoking mothers may have more chance of chronic cough, wheeze, ear infections and other respiratory symptoms. Sudden infant death syndrome is another condition reported in infants of smoking mothers” explained Dr. P.T. James, HOD, Pulmonary Medicine, Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, Kochi.
