Second-hand smoke polluting some areas of the nation

Second-hand smoke is no longer just a threat if you live with or stand close to someone smoking a cigarette. Harmful particles are making their way into the air at large, making it a larger pollution concern than some people initially thought.

The Kentucky Center for Smoke-free Policy (KCSP) conducted a research study of the air quality in Rowan County, Kentucky, and found that city dwellers outside Morehead were at risk for being exposed to harmful levels of second-hand smoke, though Morehead, which recently implemented smoke-free laws, had smoke levels six to seven times lower than the surrounding area, The Morehead News reports.

Beyond implementing far-reaching legislation, there are a few simple steps people can take (such as avoiding congested thoroughfares) to avoid pollution. We can exercise a much greater amount of control over indoor spaces, however, by installing a high-quality air purifying system.
