Passive smoking affects hearing, what do you think?


Following research that found smoking can affect your hearing, experts now believe passive smoking can also have a detrimental effect on your hearing ability.

The latest study in the journal Tobacco Control, involving more than 3,000 US adults, showed that hearing levels were lower in those people regularly exposed to second-hand smoke.

We sent our reporters out on to the streets to find out what you thought about smoking making you deaf.
