20 ‘Innocent’ Habits That Might Give You Cancer (Expert-Verified)
Secondhand smoking refers to the inhalation of smoke from other people’s cigarettes.
Unfortunately, even if you’re not a smoker yourself, spending too much time around smokers can still increase your long-term risks of nasal sinus cavity cancer, nasopharyngeal cancer and breast cancer.
Things are even worse for children who become secondhand smokers as they have an increased risk of lymphoma, leukemia and brain tumors, as per the National Cancer Institute.
Captain’s Tip: The only way you can avoid this damaging habit is by avoiding to stay around smokers. If you have members in your household who smoke, create a special place designed for smoking where non-smokers have limited access (especially children).
