Breathing smoke is harmful to everyone
Smoke contains microscopic particles that contain toxic compounds. When inhaled, fine particles collect in the lungs, causing damaging structural and chemical changes. These small particles also act as carriers for other toxic materials. Those at greatest risk include young children, the elderly, and those with existing heart or lung diseases.
