Author(s): Lazina Muna, Eshika Nazneen, Prokash Chandra Sarkar, Mozammal Hossain


This study looked at the negative effects of passive smoking on one's health as well as how the socio-demographics of tobacco users affected those effects. The National Institute of Preventive and Social Medicine (NIPSOM), in Dhaka, Bangladesh, conducted this cross-sectional study. The survey included 150 adult males and female respondents in total. Age was determined to be averaged at 38.93 ± 2.04. The majority of respondents (103.36%) smoke smokeless tobacco, while 30% of respondents reported being unemployed based on their profession. The problem with smoking revealed that environmental pollution was a 91.3% problem, problems with pregnant women were 89.3% problems, and the majority (52.67%) had breathing problems and 34.67% had teeth pain. It can be concluded that smoking poses a serious threat to the world's public health, causing serious mental and physical health problems. Implementing focused preventative interventions is therefore essential to deterring tobacco use. It would also be helpful to perform more research on how tobacco users estimate danger.
