The Invisible Threat of ‘Thirdhand Smoke’

Third hand smoke

Third hand smoke, what is that? Third hand smoke is when a smoker have been smoking and then enters a space where a non-smoker is subjected to the fumes of the smokers breath, hair, skin and clothes. The chemicals and fumes fromt he smoking clings to the smoker, their breath and person, and if smoking indoors even to furnitures a.s, walls, roof and floors.

Third hand smoking can trigger an asthma attack. I myself have experienced it many times, and it is no joke talking to a smoker and your lungs like to strangle you.

In Huffingtonpost.com you can read about this:
“The recently recognized dangers of “thirdhand smoke, the gases and particles that cling to clothing, hair, furniture, walls and other surfaces long after a cigarette is stubbed out. Dr. Richard Graffis, executive vice president and chief medical officer at Indiana University Health, describes it as “the smoke you don’t see, but that your nose tells you is there.”

I like canoeing, photographing, friends, movies, food, humor, and going on trips. I dislike rudeness, dishonesty, violence, nastyness, and people not caring for others. I do not drink much, I do not smoke and I do not do drugs. I love friends who are kind to me and stick with me. If you want to give me a gift, the best gift is to stop smoking and stop using fragranced products. Then you give me health and that dear friend, is the best gift a person can get. It is a gift of love. I got asthma and I am hearing disabled.
