Are There Masks For Passive Smoking?
I live with a lot of smokers, I can’t choose because this is a hostel and I am very disturbed by cigarette smoke. Are there special masks for passive smoking?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The disadvantages provided by cigarette smoke do not need to be questioned anymore. There has been a lot of research and evidence directly for those who smoke both active and passive, that smoking can have a negative impact on health in the long term.
Among the diseases that can arise from smoking are:
Acid reflux disease
Impotence and fertility disorders
And of course there are many more. In addition, not only common cigarettes, e-cigarettes, and all kinds of other cigarette variants also have a bad impact regardless of what they claim. So that your efforts to stay away from cigarette smoke are very good and must be appreciated.
Unfortunately, so far there are no special masks for passive smoking. But there are many masks that generally protect you from bacteria, pollution, vehicle fumes, ash, and cigarette smoke. These masks differ in type based on the density of the ingredients. The tighter it is, the less bad substances will get through, and usually the more expensive it is. To be able to get a mask like this, you can try looking for it at the pharmacy closest to your home, or at a pharmacy that is incorporated in the hospital. In addition, you can also try to minimize cigarette smoke by leaving the room when someone is smoking, or opening a window. So, hopefully it answers your question.
