Secondhand smoke is hazardous to anyone who comes into contact with it. This toxic smoke can effect any individual, including innocent children. Children are greatly effected by secondhand smoke for they are still undergoing their developmental changes, both physically and mentally. When exposed to secondhand smoke, a child can develop serious health problems such as severe asthma, chronic ear infections, and an early onset of bronchitis.
