Second Hand Smoke
Environmental Risks Factors
The effects of air pollution may extend
to more than your lungs
Ultrafine particles in polluted air and
LDL or “bad” cholesterol may work
together to accelerate the narrowing and
blockage of blood vessels
Check the Environmental Protection Agency’s Daily Air Quality
Advocate for better air
Avoid exercise near heavy traffic areas
Cholesterol levels were highest during the winter
months and the lowest during the summer
Men’s total cholesterol levels being the
highest in December
Women’s total cholesterol levels being
the highest in January
Affects the cardiovascular system
Increases risk of cardiac disease
Makes platelets stickier
Reduces HDL cholesterol levels
Increases LDL cholesterol levels
Increases insulin resistance
Second Hand Tobacco Smoke
Cues to Action
Pender, Murdaugh, & Parsons, 2010, p.39
