Each year about 38,000 people die from heart and blood vessel disease caused by other people's smoke. Nonsmokers who are exposed to secondhand smoke at home or at work increase their risk of developing heart disease by 25–30 percent.
There is no safe level of secondhand smoke exposure and employees are often forced to work in smoke-filled restaurants and bars. Smoke-free workplace ordinances across Texas would provide clean indoor air to the nation’s second largest state and 5.6 percent of the U.S. population.
