Did you know that one in every five Kenyan adults is exposed to second hand smoke at home more than at work?
Also known as involuntary or passive smoking, public health experts warn that non-smoking persons inhale nicotine and toxic chemicals in cigarettes the same way smokers do. According to the 2015 Kenya Non-Communicable diseases risk factors report, within closed spaces in offices, men and women are exposed to secondhand smoke found to affect the heart and blood vessels, increasing the risk of heart attack and stroke.
