One would think that as studies show more and more dangers associated with smoking, the number of smokers would drop - and perhaps they have. The best result that can be expected, however, is getting a greater number of people to never start in the first place. Still, there are places where more knowledge about the dangers hasn't made as much of a difference to the smokers.
Secondhand smoke studies conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency have been a major driving force behind the ban of smoking in public places throughout most of the states in America. In fact, smoking laws have changed greatly in a relatively short period of time. Even with these recent advancements, in states where there are fewer smoking laws, the smokers remain in stronger force.
The chemical produced by secondhand smoke can be dangerous to those who suffer regular exposure. If you're a smoker and want to protect your family, or you simply worry about the dangers within your home, invest in a medical-grade air purifier. These purifiers can remove up to 99.5 percent of the toxins released by secondhand smoke from the air, allowing your family to breathe healthier.
