Download our fact sheet to learn how secondhand and thirdhand smoke effects musician health.

Musicians and other entertainers breathe in an excess of secondhand smoke, which puts them at a higher risk for health complications like eye, ear, nose, and throat issues, or long-term health risks including heart disease and cancer.

For every ½ hour a musician performs in a smoky venue, he or she has smoked the equivalent of one cigarette.

For a two-hour gig, that’s 4 cigarettes!
