What's In This Blog

I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

Health As I See It: Third-Hand Smoke: What It Is and How It Hurts Your Family



Tobacco smoke is full of toxins.  We all know this.  However those toxins can effect those who don't smoke, or who aren't even around someone who smokes.  This is because those toxins can into stuff around us,  Th couch, the curtains, the pillow, stuffed animals--all of these things can be permeated with toxins.  This toxins may be released when this stuff is moved or disturbed.  All can breathe in third-hand smoke, but those who are most vulnerable to third-hand smoke are babies and pets; however the wife cleaning or the made can also be susceptible.  Can you imagine the maids at a hotel.
The best way to protect your family is to quite smoking.  Barring that, never smoke in the house or car, or where children play.  Wash your hands after you smoke.  Where a jacket, and then leave the jacket outside so the smoke doesn't get to your kids.  Lastly it may be necessary to avoid the homes of those who smoke, especially with your young children.
