The Negative Effects of Second Hand Smoke

+1 vote
I am a 38 year old woman and had been living with my parents till I was 21 years old. Both my parents were smokers, smoking at least 2 packets a day. And to top it all, my mother for some reason always kept the doors and windows tightly closed. The walls of our home were yellow and both of them were always sick, not to mention the sickly me! When I got married, I found that I had cancer of the reproductive organs. I got the bad cells removed but again it struck and that too was taken care of through two very horrible surgeries. Well, I was diagnosed with asthma ten years after I left home. An attack nearly took away my life. The doctor said that it was quite usual to get struck by it within a period of ten years of leaving the contaminated situation.
In the meantime, I developed endometriosis and I do not claim that SSH was the cause factor. It is just that I am listing all my illnesses down. I gave birth to two kids with Jaundice through a caesarian section and one of them had to be rushed to a hospital with better amenities. Both my children have disabilities like ADD/ADDS ODD. My life was really hectic and it was then that my father died with Emphysema leaving my dear mother without a penny and fending for herself. Smoking is the most stupid thing that one can do as it really takes your life for a toss, giving you terrible Theories have proved that SSH is doubly bad when compared to the actual smoking itself. I am as you all can see the living proof of such a situation and if there is anyone who knows good lawyers do sit up and get noticed. I am now just in the middle of a severe asthma attack and am wondering whether I must file a suit.
