The line I bolded makes it sound like if you breathe any second hand smoke you will drop dead on the spot. I do agree that in the cases of people with respiratory disease of some type second hand smoke would be bad. But most of the time a little smoke isn't going to kill you on the spot.
I'm a non smoker and I was in the sport bar on Splendor watching a soccer game. There was quite a bit of smoke and guess what I'm still alive.
I hate it when non smokers go into a smoking area to complain about the smoke or make stupid fake coughing sounds. As a non smoker I find it irritating to be in the smoking area with other disrespectful non smokers. If you are a non smoker in a smoking area complaining about the smoke then you are a person looking to cause trouble. Stop it you are making the rest of us non smoker look bad.
