Cigarettes cause harm to the body of each person is one with his existence. Today no matter you smoke or not, because harmful substances can be found almost everywhere and harm the health of all mankind. Recently German researchers found that contained in cigarette smoke harmful substances are even in areas where for more than a decade Smoking was strictly prohibited. The question arises how the particles in cigarette smoke may be in the premises with such strict rules? No, it is not the presence of any cracks in the building and in the people.
On the conducted research and made the discovery was written in the scientific journal Science Advances. Scientists have long known that cigarette smoke contains many harmful substances. For example, it is causing heart palpitations and headaches benzene, and hazardous to the upper respiratory tract formaldehyde. To protect non-smokers from the harmful effects of these chemical compounds, the owners of many restaurants, cinemas and other public places put a ban on Smoking indoors. However, the use of such measures was not so great as previously thought.
The dangers of cigarette smoke
That particles of cigarette smoke are in almost any room, found a group of German scientists under the leadership of professors drew Gentner. They agreed with one of the cinemas of Germany, that appreciate the purity of the air in the cinema with the help of special equipment. The idea is that a huge room was supposed to be devoid of harmful substances, because in the cinema 15 years it was forbidden to smoke. But it was not so easy.
The researchers monitored the concentration of thousands of gases and particulates in the air before every movie and at the end of the sessions. In the course of scientific work it was found that the air of the cinema, inside which dozens of years, no Smoking, still contained 35 harmful substances, including benzene with formaldehyde. The concentration of hazardous substances is dramatically increased when people came to the hall and gradually decreased after the screening.
It is noteworthy that when showing movies with a rating of 18+, the concentration contained in cigarette smoke of substances was 200% higher than when showing family films. According to scientists, if the “adult” film will come Smoking man, he will receive the same damage from the passive (or rather tertiary) Smoking as if in a small room someone had smoked a dozen cigarettes.
Passive Smoking is the inhalation of cigarette smoke, which is emitted by other people. There is also the term tertiary non-Smoking, in which a person inhales harmful substances in the premises or vehicle in which used to smoke.
Researchers believe that harmful substances in the relatively clean space and are absorbed into the clothing of smokers. How much is absorbed cigarette smoke and in which materials, German scientists is still unknown. They hope that finding the answer to this question will engage their counterparts from other countries.
