Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The authors underline the similarities between active and passive smoking under many features, i.e. chemical and physical composition, the kind of health risks, the anti-educational impact on the youth. The special character of passive smoking is also discussed, such as its multiplicative exposure effect on the population, and the hazard to high-risk people like children, pregnant women, and respiratory and cardiovascular patients.
