The legal implications of passive smoking at home

Benjamin Andoh

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Irrespective of whether it takes place at work or at home, passive smoking is the involuntary inhalation of the tobacco smoke of other people. The smoke inhaled by the non-smoker may be: (a) mainstream smoke: smoke inhaled and exhaled by the smoker, (b) sidestream smoke: smoke which is emitted directly from burning tobacco, or (c) environmental tobacco smoke, also known as second-hand smoke: a combination of both mainstream smoke and sidestream smoke in the atmosphere. In this article passive smoking will be used synonymously with involuntary exposure to environmental smoke.
