There are many risks of indoor air pollutants. Some of these risks include respiratory disease, cancer, heart disease, and strokes. These risks could be greatly reduced through smoke-free laws. There were some tests done in some public places that allowed smoking. Measurements were made of the particles in the air to see how much air pollution secondhand smoke accounted for. Test results showed that a very high percentage of the air had pollution caused by secondhand smoke. These tests showed the danger that workers and customers faced everyday. Smoke-free laws would end this problem.
