Which is the more unfriendly place for your lungs -- the smoking section inside a cafe or the one outside on the patio?
The answer may surprise you. Tests recently revealed that the air quality is often equally poor in both locations. So steer clear of that smoking section whenever you can. Now, which of these is worse for your lungs?
Cars or Bars?
Would your lungs be worse off if you spent a few hours in a car, windows cracked, with someone who’s smoking or if you whiled away an evening in a smoky bar? Again, the answer may seem counterintuitive. Seems the air in a car, after a few cigarettes, can be even worse than the air in a smoky bar -- even with the windows open a bit. So now you know what to say the next time your pal wants to light up on a road trip.
