  • May 26, 2018 - A Mutli-prong Approach to Addressing Exposure to Tobacco Smoke

    Coalitions and tobacco
    Graphic source:
    I love this graphic that shows how important collaboration is to addressing the tobacco problem. Tobacco is an environmental problem because of health effects associated with second-hand and third-hand exposures. Collaboration among government entities at various levels, along with coalition building among advocacy groups make for a more effective approach.

  • May 25, 2018 - There is NO risk-free level of secondhand smoke exposure

    Hazards of 2nd Hand Smoke
    Graphic source:
    Scientific assessments such as dose effect curves seek to evaluate the health risk associated to second-hand smoke exposure.
    • "The Surgeon General released a report in 2006 regarding the dangers of secondhand smoke (SHS). One of the claims in the report is:
    • There is NO risk-free level of secondhand smoke exposure, with even brief exposure adversely affecting the cardiovascular and respiratory system.
    • We know that secondhand smoke harms people's health, but many people assume that exposure to secondhand smoke in small doses does not do any significant damage to one's health. However, science has proven that there is NO risk-free level of exposure to secondhand smoke. Let me say that again: there is no safe level of exposure to secondhand smoke.
    • Breathing secondhand smoke for even a short time can damage cells and set the cancer process in motion. Brief exposure can have immediate harmful effects on blood and blood vessels, potentially increasing the risk of a heart attack. Secondhand smoke exposure can quickly irritate the lungs, or trigger an asthma attack. For some people, these rapid effects can be life-threatening. People who already have heart disease or respiratory conditions are at especially high risk."

    So, there you have it. The entire environment needs to be smoke-free to reduce the health hazards associated with exposure to second-hand smoke!

    "National Women's Health Week is an observance led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women's Health. The goal is to empower women to make their health a priority. National Women's Health Week also serves as a time to help women understand what it means to be well.

    What does it mean to be a well woman?
    It's a state of mind. It's being as healthy as you can be. And, most importantly, it's about taking steps to improve your physical and mental health:

    • Visit a health care professional to receive regular checkups and preventive screenings.
    • Get active.
    • Eat healthy.
    • Pay attention to mental health, including getting enough sleep and managing stress.
    • Avoid unhealthy behaviors, such as smoking, texting while driving, and not wearing a seatbelt or bicycle helmet."

  • April 30, 2018 - Third-hand smoke just as deadly as first-hand smoke

    3rd hand smoke deadly as 1st hand smoke
    Graphic source:
    According to a University of California-Riverside report, "Third-hand smoke just as deadly as first-hand smoke":
    • "While first-hand smoke refers to the smoke inhaled by a smoker and second-hand smoke to the exhaled smoke and other substances emanating from the burning cigarette that can get inhaled by others, third-hand smoke is the second-hand smoke that gets left on the surfaces of objects, ages over time and becomes progressively more toxic.
    • Third-hand smoke is a potential health threat to children, spouses of smokers and workers in environments where smoking is, or has been, allowed. Contamination of the homes of smokers by third-hand smoke is high, both on surfaces and in dust, including children's bedrooms.
    • Re-emission of nicotine from contaminated indoor surfaces in these households can lead to nicotine exposure levels similar to that of smoking. Third-hand smoke, which contains strong carcinogens, has been found to persist in houses, apartments and hotel rooms after smokers move out.
    • (Mice studies have found:) In the liver, third-hand smoke was found to increase lipid levels and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, a precursor to cirrhosis and cancer and a potential contributor to cardiovascular disease.
    • In the lungs, third-hand smoke was found to simulate excess collagen production and high levels of inflammatory cytokines (small proteins involved in cell signaling), suggesting propensity for fibrosis with implications for inflammation-induced diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma.
    • In wounded skin, healing in mice exposed to third-hand smoke showed many characteristics of the kind of poor healing observed in human smokers who have gone through surgery."
    • Finally, in behavioral tests the mice exposed to third-hand smoke showed hyperactivity.
    • "More recently we have found that exposure to third-hand smoke results in changes that can lead to type II diabetes even when the person is not obese,"
    • Children in environments where smoking is, or has been allowed, are at significant risk for suffering from multiple short-term and longer health problems, many of which may not manifest fully until later in life."
    • Research has shown that children living with one or two adults who smoke in the home, where second- and third-hand smoke are abundant, are absent 40 percent more days from school due to illness than children who did not live with smokers."

  • April 27, 2018 - Third-Hand Smoke

    Effects of smoking in a closed bedroom
    Graphic source:

    According Dartmouth-Hitchcock's Norris Cotton Cancer Center's "Protect Children from Third Hand Smoke Exposure" Studies have shown that when just one cigarette was smoked in a bedroom with the door closed, it took two hours for particulates in the air to return to below the threshold for harm. Figure: Ott et al. 2003. J. Air & Waste Manage. Assoc.

    • "What happens when second hand smoke collects on our clothes, or in the car seats, furniture, carpets, and even the wallboard that surround us? The contamination that persists after second hand smoke has dissipated is called third hand smoke (THS).
    • Researchers have identified significant amounts of toxins from third hand smoke in homes and cars of smokers even months after no smoking has occurred. Residual pollutants remain on surfaces and in dust; they re-emit as nicotine gas or as ultrafine particles; and they can collect in textiles and other materials to create a reservoir that emits gas over time. These pollutants can also react with other compounds in the environment, like ozone, to create secondary pollutants.
    • Even when parents understand the dangers of second hand smoke in the home, many think it is safe to smoke in a car if children aren't in it.
    • But smoking in the car creates an especially intense environment for third hand smoke exposure. The nicotine can combine with nitrous acid from exhaust to create cancer-causing tobacco-specific nitrosamines (TSNAs) that settle into the dust on the dashboard, seats, and carpets. And these TSNA's can be absorbed through the skin—when you open a glove compartment or dust off the dash with your hand."
