To assess the degree of carcinogen
exposure among those individuals
working or socializing in smoking
environments, scientists at the
University of Minnesota conducted
two studies, which measured the
level of carcinogen uptake in nonsmoking
casino patrons and in nonsmoking
bar and restaurant
employees both before and after
exposure to environmental tobacco
smoke (ETS). Both studies demonstrated that nonsmokers' exposure to ETS causes significant increases in uptake of tobaccospecific carcinogens and toxins.
