’3rd’ Hand Smoke Kills?

In 2010 South Dakota banned smoking in bars, restaurants, businesses, and other public places.  Many smokers declared it was an infringement on their rights.

We have known for a long time that if you choose to smoke you assume the health risks that go along with it.  But what about those around you?  Does the smoker have some responsibility to make sure that they are not harming innocent by-standers or housemates?

Research has shown that smoking kills, 2nd hand smoke can kill, and now new research is claiming that third-hand smoke from cigarettes can be hazardous to your health.

Third-hand smoke is ‘noxious residue’ produced by cigarette smoke that clings to virtually all surfaces after second-hand smoke has disappeared.

The researchers conclude in their paper:

‘Ultimately, knowledge of the mechanisms by which third-hand smoke exposure increases the chance of disease development in exposed individuals should lead to new strategies for prevention.

Researchers said third-hand smoke is particularly insidious because it is extremely difficult to get rid of. [Source: Dailymail.co.uk]

According to the Centers for Disease Control:

In South Dakota, 17.5% of the adult population (aged 18+ years)—over 106,000 individuals—are current cigarette smokers.

With all of the new and existing research, do you think that cigarettes should be further regulated or even outlawed?
