If you live in an apartment, you are more likely to be a smoker or breathe smoky air than someone who lives in a single family home.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it’s a big problem in private and public housing.

our take

You are simply more likely to be exposed to secondhand smoke if you live in a multi-unit dwelling – that’s clear from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention survey. Everyone deserves to live in a smoke-free environment, and we are keen to see final regulations from the Department of Housing and Urban Development making public housing smoke-free. We also need to see more effort going into making those policies stick – including cessation help for apartment-dwellers.
