Children who smoke second-hand smoke for a long time are susceptible to pneumonia
Experts point out that smoking itself means “chronic suicide”, and the harm to people around you cannot be ignored.
A 2007 study showed that about 100,000 people in China die each year from second-hand smoke.
Among them, children are innocent victims.
Because of the physical characteristics of children, they breathe more air per kilogram of body weight than adults and absorb more pollutants.
The World Health Organization believes that second-hand smoke is “harmful by inhalation”. Because children are in the period of growth and development and have low resistance to harmful factors, the harm of second-hand smoke is even more serious.
Without children’s age, “second-hand smoke” may weaken their lung function, increase the incidence of acute diseases, and increase children’s pneumonia, rhinitis, cystic fibrosis, and chronic respiratory diseases.
Children who are often exposed to “second-hand smoke” are also particularly prone to colds and sore throats. Infants and young children under the age of two who are exposed to “second-hand smoke” are prone to bronchitis and pneumonia.
In addition, there are many long-term hazards of second-hand smoke. Parental smoking is more likely to be a bad role model for children, leading to a rise in smoking rates among young people.
