Second-Hand Smoke


"A 1992 study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology reports that dogs in smoking households had a 60 percent greater risk of developing lung cancer than those who lived in smoke-free homes.

"...long-nosed dogs... were twice as likely to get nasal cancer if they lived with smokers" (Beth Finke. "The Dark Side of Lighting Up: Second-hand Smoke Claims Canine Lives." Dog Fancy, June 2004: 56).
