More evidence to support smoke free cars – #smokingincars

A new report from academics in San Francisco shows that nonsmokers sitting in a car with a smoker for one hour had markers of significantly increased levels of carcinogens and other toxins in their urine, indicating that secondhand smoke in motor vehicles poses a potentially major health risk.

The nonsmoking passengers also showed elevated levels of butadiene, acrylonitrile, benzene, methylating agents and ethylene oxide. This group of toxic chemicals is “thought to be the most important among the thousands in tobacco smoke that cause smoking-related disease.”
