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.

No

Extremity-upper-hand
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.

Does small amounts of second hand smoke cause visceral fat accumulation? I know that smoking itself increases visceral fat, but what of this variety?

Not that i know of

Extremity-upper-hand
am unaware of any evidence that associates second hand smoke with anything like that, particularly if in small amounts. Do your best to keep your home, or at least your living space, smoke free, and ask smokers not to do so in your vicinity, but don't think it is related. Visceral fat, for the most part, is influenced by diet and exercise, and to heredity to some extent.

I have quit smoking since more than a year and a half now, but I am always around smokers.How bad is it for me now second hand smoke? It bothers me.

You still smoke

Hand
Instead of smoking your own cigarettes, you now smoke other people's smoke and burning chemicals. Second hand smoke is just as dangerous as as smoking. The only sensible way dealing with it is avoidance. If you can't, at least limit your stay to the shortest time. Also, try to meet people where there is no smoke, or outside. An air purifier may help some in a closed space, or open windows.
