The University of Rochester press release concludes with: 'Wilson said many parents are trying to limit their children's tobacco smoke exposure by not allowing smoking in their apartments, but they say they can smell tobacco smoke coming from other apartments or from common areas.'
And, 'Last summer, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development released a memo recommending that their housing developments enact smoke-free policies. A smoking ban within multi-unit, subsidized housing could further reduce the tobacco smoke exposure for children and reduce smoking rates among residents.'
Studies have shown that children exposed to tobacco smoke, and with high levels of cotinine in their blood, have higher rates of respiratory(lung related) diseases, decreased cognitive (learning) abilities, and decreased antioxidant levels (fewer molecules to help strengthen the immune system and ward off diseases).
