Clean Indoor Air



 

West Virginia Clean Indoor Air ProgramWest Virginia’s Clean Indoor Air Program’s goal is to eliminate exposure to secondhand smoke. Secondhand smoke, also known as environmental tobacco smoke (ETS), is a mixture of smoke given off by the burning end of tobacco products, (sidestream smoke), and the smoke exhaled by smokers, (mainstream smoke).

Secondhand smoke contains a complex mixture of more than 4,000 chemicals, more than 50 of which are known or probable human cancer-causing agents (carcinogens). People are exposed to secondhand smoke in the home, workplace, and in public venues such as bars, bowling alleys, and restaurants.

To accomplish our goal, the Clean Indoor Air Program partners with several agencies.
