temperatures, inhaled by smoker and exhaled Side stream: generated at lower temperatures and tends to have higher concentrations of all toxins US Department of Health and Human Services (USDHHS) / Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 2006 http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_919KGO0U6Zs/SR5Ywkfin6I/AAAAAAAABjY/N39Xglz0G0Y/s400/smoke.jpg

World Health Organization 2005 Global Toll of SHS Globally, 40% of children, 35% of female non-smokers, and 33% of male non-smokers were exposed to SHS (2004). In some regions (Southeast Asia, Western Pacific), more than 60% of children and more than 50% of adults were exposed to SHS. Harm from SHS disproportionally affects children and
women. Global Death Toll of SHS Exposure to SHS caused 603,000 deaths among nonsmokers (2004): 379,000 deaths from ischemic heart disease 165,000 deaths from lower respiratory infections 64,000 deaths from asthma 21,400 deaths from lung cancer 50% of deaths are women; 28% are children < 5 Why Go Smoke-Free? Protects non-smokers, which results in decreased
heart disease mortality: Reduces SHS exposure and creates conducive environment for smokers to quit. Ventilation and filtration: ineffective Fully protects workers and the public Prevents initiation of smoking among youth by normalizing non smoking 1. World Health Organization 2007 Reducing SHS Exposure in the Home Households are the main sites for SHS exposure for
women and children. Legal and regulatory policies affect worksites and public places, not homes. A 31 country study found that 88% of parents who smoked did so at home and near their children.1 Creating and enforcing smoke-free homes is critical to improve the health of women and children worldwide. Household Survey Findings: India Surveys conducted in households (n= 1306) in Kerala found that:
In over 35% (n=464) of households surveyed, there was a smoker. 95% (n=409) of women reported that they and their children were sometimes or often exposed to SHS smoke indoors or outdoors. 75% of women reported that they and their children were sometimes or often exposed to SHS smoke at home. 76% of women said they had no rules in their home about smoking.

Smoke-free Initiatives: India1 A study from Bihar: Teachers smoked less in schools with a no-smoking policy. Tobacco-free town in Kerala: Koolimadu village, started
when a chain smoker from the village died of cancer. Indian railways: Banned smoking in all its service areas. Though important, such legislation is difficult to enforce. 1.
