I am allergic to cigarette smoke. I passed by a smoker who exhaled cigarette smoke. I inhaled that smoke.Can this smoke inhalation cause lung cancer?

It may give you irrittation on the outside layer of the eye- conjunctivitis- makes your eyes red and discomfort.

Depends on variables: An impressionable child might decide it looks cool or normal to smoke, and that visual, not the smoke might induce someone to smoke. I can't buy into the idea that living around 2nd hand smoke alters you physically and makes you want to smoke. ...Read more

How much impact would secondhand marijuana smoke have on small children? Any different from cigarette smoke?
Lots: Secondhand mj smoke implies that an adult is smoking in the same area as a child. Besides the obvious impact of smoke inhalation, there is the facet of tacit acceptance of illegal activities to an impressionable child. The biggest impact then would be abuse of the child. Look at it this way, would you shoot up heroin in front of a child? ...Read more
Toxic level: Cigarette smoking puts the toxins directly into your lungs and your body in a concentrated form. Auto exhaust is diluted by the time you might inhale it.
