Pets Face Second-Hand Smoke Dangers, Too

If you’re struggling with keeping that resolution to quit smoking, think about your pets.

Research shows that second-hand smoke is not only dangerous to other people but animals as well. A study published in the peer-reviewed journal Tobacco Control of pet owners who smoke found that 28 percent of them were motivated to quit when told of the health effects their habit had on their pets.

Lung cancer, the most preventable form of cancer death, is also the leading cause of cancer death in the United States for both men and women, according to national cancer statistics.
