600,000 die from second-hand smoke a year

      • Study: Second-hand smoke kills 600,000 a year
      • To read full news article click "Study" above.
      • I was lucky because neither of my parents smoked and my father and mother were both into eating organic food whenever they could find it. However, growing up in the 1950s about 1/2 of all adults smoked back then so at least one or both of most of my friends parents smoked back then. So, many of those children now almost 60 or above wonder if they will be one of the statistics above.
    • So in places like China where it is still in regard to smoking much like it was in the U.S. in the 1950s there will be an incredible amount of deaths in the coming years because of the amounts of Chinese people smoking now. 
  • I read another article the other day that said that 50,000 per year die in the United States alone from 2nd hand smoke. That is more than die in traffic accidents in the U.S. per year.
