If you are afraid of passive smoking or “second-hand” smoking, find out that the danger behind the “third hand” smoking has been discovered.

“Third-hand” smoking is the inhalation of smoke that remains impregnated in hair, clothing, furniture, or in the car. Specialists fear that this type of smoking could even harm more than classic or passive smoking.

Tests in this direction were performed on mice, but these should not be ignored. Some of the most exposed people to the dangers of this type of smoking are babies.

Researchers at the University of California have revealed that “third-hand” smoking is a cause of type 2 diabetes, but also of liver and lung disease.

Specialists analyzed how people are affected by inhalation of cigarette smoke left in a person’s clothes, hair, house or car and claim they have identified a direct impact on the brain and the liver.
