U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona is on a crusade against smoking — specifically, second-hand smoke. “Exposure to secondhand smoke remains an alarming public health hazard,” Carmona said. “Nonsmokers need protection through the restriction of smoking in public places and workplaces” _ and by smokers voluntarily not puffing around children.
