SINUS ISSUES? COULD BE SECOND-HAND SMOKE

Posted on | April 20, 2010 | No Comments

Cigarette smoke could be to blame for much of the chronic itchy, runny nose and sinus woes — also known as rhinosinusitis — that plague one in every six US adults. New research (Brock University in St. Catherines, Ontario) shows if you’ve had a history of chronic rhinosinusitis or if you have sensitive nasal passages and sinuses and you’re vulnerable, then you should avoid second-hand smoke.

… Researchers say exposure to second-hand smoke — especially on the job and at private social functions like parties and weddings — upped the likelihood of suffering from chronic rhinosinusitis. In fact, they calculated that passive smoking is behind 40 percent of all cases of the condition.
