In brief: Passive smoking

Many factors influence the lung in passive exposure.
Age, amount, duration, ventilation, underlying lung conditions.Pulmonary evaluation is needed, to make such conclusions.However, smoke exposure is well known to affect the lung function, yet to what extent ! , this depends on the factors noted above.Outdoor exposure would possibly be less damaging to lungs than indoor exposure.
