My friend wanted these to print out. She just moved into an apartment...across the hall from a chain cigar smoker. She wants to print them out and place them on tables in their recreation room. She already had the management purchase 2 air purifiers. One for outside his door and one for inside his apartment. ...See, they don't work for second hand tobacco smoke and odors either.

The EPA estimates that the lifetime cancer risk from wood stove smoke is 12 times greater than from an equal volume of second hand tobacco smoke. ("The Health Effects of Wood Smoke". Washington State Department of Ecology). This is from Burning Issues Wood Smoke Fact Sheets.
