second (and third) hand smoke has plenty of bad effects, and some can be every bit as bad as smoking. Effects are not exactly the same, however.

What is worse, inhaling second hand smoke or smoking cigarettes?

Second-hand

Reduce_second_hand_smoke_exposure
Assuming your frequency of exposure to cigarettes is the same as primary vs secondary exposure, the second-hand smoke is worse because it's not filtered and it contains more ash and combustion by-products.

Can you tell me how is second hand smoke more dangerous than regular smoking?

It isn't

Extremity-upper-hand
what is dangerous is that for smokers, they are adding to the toxins they already take in, and for non-smokers they are taking in toxins that they didn't plan to take in, just because they are breathing someone elses sidestream smoke. The risks of smoking-related problems with second hand smoke are dramatically less than smoking, but should be zero in non-smokers.
