Most secondhand smoke exposure in children and adults who don’t smoke happens at home. Secondhand smoke causes a range of serious health problems, including stroke, heart disease, and sudden infant death syndrome. In addition to reducing secondhand smoke exposure, making homes smoke-free can help adults quit smoking and prevent smoking initiation in adolescents.
