Patient : What are the potential infant health risks of visiting a home 2 or 3 times a week in which 2 people smoked for 25 years and now one person still smokes only when the child is not present. My concern is 2nd and 3rd hand smoke. The Parents don't want the bring child to visit because of the 2nd and 3rd hand smoke. Is it really that bad or are the parents being over protective?
