London, UK (PRWEB) April 23, 2006 -- The NHS say the effects of secondhand smoke on children can be more serious because their bodies are still developing.

Secondhand smoke contains poisonous gases, tar and thousands of toxic chemicals. These poisons get into the bodies of children who live in smoky atmospheres.
