In 30 minutes, clots will start to form in your blood vessels, increasing your chances of getting heart attack and stroke.

Secondhand smoke (SHS)

In 2 hours, your heart rate will increase exponentially, causing you to develop irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia).

Secondhand smoke (SHS)

Currently, exposure to SHS has no treatment. But we can reduce its danger by doing the following: Staying away from areas where people frequently smoke Asking people not to smoke indoors Complying with smoke-free policies
