Smoking may be more harmful than previously thought

We All know that Smoking is dangerous for health, but many of us do not realize how much. A new study, first published in the journal Science Advances, proves that cigarettes can harm health even hours after using them. Staying on the clothing and bodies of smokers, volatile organic compounds into the lungs not only the consumer of tobacco products, but its non-Smoking environment. So how harmful residual ?

how dangerous is cigarette smoke?

Proof that cigarette smoke can remain on clothing and body of the smoker, took researchers from Yale University for several decades. The fact that the so-called «the smoke of third hand» or toxins that remain on clothing and skin avid fans to smoke, is able to significantly increase the level of harmful volatile compounds in a closed room.

In order to test the hypothesis of researchers from “Yale”, one of the cinemas of Germany was carried out an interesting experiment. Indoors of one of the halls has been installed, the mass spectrometer is of high resolution that tracks the rise and fall of the levels emitted during the consumption of tobacco products. During the experiment, the researchers noticed that the spikes in concentrations of some toxins such as 2,5-dimethylfuran, 2 methylfuran and acetonitrile, coincided with the time of arrival and departure of spectators from the audience. In addition, the researchers found significant differences in the concentration of the toxins depending on the time of day. Thus, the number of particles of tobacco in the air was the most elevated during the screening night of cinema or films with a rating of 18+.

Although the study was not specifically determined how many smokers were in any particular session, the researchers believe that the results of the experiment clearly show that a large number of the elusive man of the toxins can be transferred to us unconsciously by clothes, skin and hair. Drew Gentner, one of the authors of the study, convinced that the experiment proves that substances such as benzene, acrolein, formaldehyde, and nicotine are able to stand out from the clothes , “infecting” so and non-Smoking premises.

Concentration of volatile compounds from second-hand smoke in a closed room can reach up to ten cigarettes.

Experts not connected with the new study, suggest that the results of the experiment are not a cause for serious concern. However, the data obtained in the measurement result of the cinema with the mass spectrometer show that the detected indoor emissions can achieve the performance equivalent to the substance of the several smoked cigarettes.

Thus, active smokers can harm not only their health, but also indirectly to cause harm to a large number of people around them, even if they last smoked a cigarette was used for a few hours before the release of the person into society. According to the study, emissions from “secondary” Smoking can vary, ranging from 1 to 10 cigarettes depending on room size and number of occupants.
