Side stream smoke is the smoke from the lighted end of the cigarette and mainstream smoke is the smoke exhaled by someone smoking a cigarette. Breathing in either of these forms of smoke are considered hazardous to one’s health. In fact, the Surgeon General declared that there is NO risk-free level of contact with secondhand smoke. Even brief exposure can be harmful to one’s health. It is also considered a Group A Carcinogen which is known to cause cancer in humans.
