We examined the risk of obstructive respiratory disease associated with tobacco smoke in indoor air, independent of active smoking, ambient air pollution, and some of the other sources of residential indoor air pollution.
Data came from a probability sample survey of nine neighborhoods in Philadelphia conducted in 1985-1986, leading to information on approximately 4200 individuals.
While for never-smokers the prevalence of obstructive respiratory conditions was proportional to the level of environmental tobacco smoke, this secondhand smoke was not a factor in the frequency of such problems among current smokers.
