Second Hand Smoke and Indoor Air Quality, OMA Position Paper on Second Hand Smoke

Ontario Medical Association. 1996.



From the introduction: "The purpose of this document is to outline the position of the OMA with respect to second-hand smoke. Its deleterious effects are particularly significant when one takes into account the fact that second-hand smoke usually victimizes non-smokers against their will. The recommendations included in this report will, if acted upon, lead to a significant reduction in the overall involuntary exposure of non-smokers, especially children, to second-hand smoke."
