Smoking is a personal choice and we all know that it is injurious to health. One can’t meddle with another’s personal choice to smoke; however, if a person smokes in public, it affects everyone around them. Burning of tobacco releases second-hand smoke which is equally harmful if not more. Research suggests that there is no safe level of exposure to second-hand smoke. It contains carcinogens that can cause cardiovascular diseases, respiratory problems, or even cancer. Vulnerable people such as pregnant ladies, children, the elderly, or those with a weak immune system are at higher risk. It has also been proven to trigger asthma attacks. Smoking in public causes issues to others as well not just the person who is smoking. Thus, smoking in public should be banned. Secluded areas can be built in places like airports, restaurants, and bars where people can smoke and it won’t be inhaled by others in the vicinity.
