Does Smoking outside may not protect those indoors?

Some people choose to smoke outside their house with the aim to protect their family from the exposure of secondhand smoke and effects of passive smoking. 

However, nicotine is a major ingredient of secondhand smoke and hard to be detected. Sometimes, the secondhand smoke can be detected in the dust and fly inside the homes and pollute the house and exposed to children. In addition, the children are in danger to get the effects of passive smoking because children may have up to eight times nicotine in their bodies. 

The nicotine levels in the children’s urine samples, as well as dust and air samples from their bedrooms and living areas, were measured by the researchers. 

Indoor smokers’ children had the highest nicotine levels of all, up to eight times higher than outdoor smokers’ children and up to 14 times higher than non-smokers’ children. Nicotine levels in dust and air followed a similar trend. 

According to tobacco expert Martin Jarvis of University College London, if nicotine is present, other, more dangerous compounds from cigarette smoke are also likely to be present. 

Cigarette smoke is a complex mixture of about 4000 chemicals. Many of them are hazardous to human health, including formaldehyde, ammonia, and hydrogen cyanide. 

However, now there is a smart solution to prevent this accident happen, an outdoor smoking shelter. For you who do not know about smoking cabin, they are actually a cabin that are designated for smoking. They built-in with air filtration stages, fireproof ashtrays, and made of aluminium which make them durable from earthquake, rain, hot, and other weather. 

An outdoor smoking shelter room’s basic construction consists of a roof and three walls. This covered smoking space may be completely enclosed with windows, an A/C unit, exhaust fans, or an air purifier, transforming the entire system into a smoking cabin. 

Portable outdoor Smoking shelters and workplaces aren’t the only buildings in use. They are implemented in a variety of institutions, such as senior living centres, where the personnel must remain in close quarters at all times. Smokers can utilize them to take “me-time” away from their tasks and return to their positions in a short amount of time.
