Apartment Dwellers Often Subjected to Neighbors’ Tobacco Smoke

April 30, 2012   Noisy neighbors and broken-down elevators are common downsides of apartment living. You also can add unwanted tobacco smoke to the list of hazards, according to research to be presented Sunday at the Pediatric Academic Societies (PAS) annual meeting in Boston. Studies have shown that tobacco smoke can seep from one apartment into another. The extent to which this happens, however, is unclear. Researchers from the American Academy of Pediatrics Julius B. Richmond Center of Excellence surveyed a nationally representative sample of adults living in apartments to examine factors associated with unwanted tobacco smoke. The center, named for a former U.S. surgeon general, is committed to protecting children from tobacco and secondhand smoke.
