Doctors see connection between passive smoking & artery di

In medical studies it is most concerning for doctors to find that the smoke that gets into the lungs (whether or not it culminates in cancer)--through smoking or through passive inhalation (non-smokers)-- has an adverse effect on the red blood cells specifically in the arteries. There are 'agents' in the smoke that actually prevents them from doing their job. Even non-smokers who have been in a smokey atmosphere for less than a few hours--bar/nightclub full of smoke--have shown that the time it takes for these red-blood cell attacking agents to exit the body is too long for one to say smoking has no noticable ill effect on the body. Those who continue apparently do not mind.... breathing heavily, smelling nasty, having dingie teeth, burning their money, or having to repaint their ceilings every couple years.
