Facts About the Most Used and Abused Drugs from Alcohol to Ecstasy:
Study Finds High Level of Toxins in Smoke-Filled Rooms
Researchers at Sweden's Lund University say that an unventilated room filled with cigarette smoke contains 120 times greater levels of dangerous endotoxins than smoke-free rooms, Health Day News reported Aug. 25.
Endotoxins are poisonous airborne substances produced by bacteria. Although low concentrations don't pose a health threat, high levels can cause severe inflammatory reactions in the respiratory tract.
The study also determined that tobacco endotoxins are a more aggressive form of the bacteria.
"This can be one reason why smokers so often suffer from respiratory ailments. The fact that passive smoking entails exposure to extremely high concentrations of endotoxins is an entirely new breakthrough," said study leader Lennart Larsson.
The researchers plan to continue their research to determine whether tobacco-smoke endotoxins are absorbed by airborne dust, causing their effects to linger after a smoker leaves the room.
The study is published in the current online edition of the journal Indoor Air.
