In three separate studies conducted by US researchers, it was discovered that secondhand smoke greatly affects the health of women and children.

1. Secondhand smoke causes vascular changes in children and obese teens posing risks for heart disease when they are adults. Not to mention that it can also cause respiratory diseases.

2. Children exposed to secondhand smoke will have very low levels of anti-oxidants making them prone to contracting diseases.
