"Second-hand smoke is known to cause asthma, seasonal allergies and eczema." Dr. Marin Kiesau said.

The word is partially out there. What about wood smoke? No mention. Wood smoke is almost identical to environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) but is more toxic.

Wood smoke (PAH's) is in our non-smoking homes at higher levels when one neighbor is burning wood than that of second hand tobacco smoke (PAH's) in tobacco smoking homes. (Ott's Christmas study).
