Children could be particularly susceptible to the negative impacts of passive smoking on their cardiovascular health because of their underdeveloped physiological functions. Over 30% of coronary heart disease (CHD) mortality is attributable to either active smoking or exposure to passive smoke. While the specific causes of cardiovascular disease remain unknown, for a long time, people have understood that smoking has an impact that is harmful to the function of the endothelium. The purpose of this research was to report on the levels of knowledge among never-smokers about the dangers of secondhand smoke. A total of 50 participants were surveyed using a Likert scale and SPSS for this research. We used a standardized questionnaire to collect information on demographics, location, risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD), lifestyle, and physical activity levels among those exposed to secondhand smoke. Using the mentioned Scales and correlation analysis it was found that sleep quality is strongly positively associated with hypertension (r = 0.90 p < 0.005), and physical activity swimming is strongly positively associated with (r = 0.87, p < 0.005) is strongly positively associated. The author concluded that respondents were most knowledgeable about the risks of passive smoking to lung cancer, asthma attacks in adults and children, and preterm births in the obstetric population.
