Current research demonstrates that Passive Tobacco Exposure (PTE) by means of Thirdhand Smoke (THS), has devastating cytotoxic effects to living tissue in laboratory experiments. There are but a few studies on Thirdhand Smoke exposure (THSe) on populations. The dangers of Secondhand Smoke (SHS) were described by the Surgeon General in 1986 and yet over 16 million Americans continue to have some level of a tobacco-inflicted illness. Facilitating motivation to change addictive behaviors is a long-investigated topic confounded by the fact that cigarette smoking is legal. Actions such as public smoking bans, raising tobacco taxes, and tobacco litigation demonstrate some progress in Smoke Cessation (SC) but a new approach is needed to effect societal smoking behavior and complete global smoke cessation.
