The article discusses the health effects of third-hand smoke. Third-hand smoke is used to describe the invisible yet toxic brew of gases and particles clinging to the smoker's hair and clothing, with residues including carcinogens and radioactive materials that young children can get on their hands and ingest. Doctor Jonathan P. Winickoff, lead author of the study on the effects of third-hand smoke, says that inhaling smoke from a cigarette can harm the infants and children's health.
