Secondhand smoke damages the arteries, which can cause stroke or heart attack.
VO: Secondhand smoke enters the throat. And it doesn’t just damage the lungs: Within minutes the smoke activates platelets, which thickens the blood and damages arteries. In time plaque accumulates in the damaged blood vessels, obstructing blood flow to the heart. This can result in stroke or heart attack.
