In brief: 11,000/year in US

About 11, 000 cases/year of cancer in the us are attributable to second hand tobacco smoke, compared to about 400, 000 from smoking.

In brief: A lot

3000 lung cancer deaths in the us in non-smokers as a result of second hand smoke.
Living with a smoker increases lung cancer risk by 20-30%.
