Could my sore throat be due to second hand smoke?
I have been living in a house with my mom who is a about six cigarette a day smoker (or so she claims) for 14 years. I am 14. She probably even smoked when she was pregnant with me even though she denies it. I moved in with my cousins. My aunt and uncle both smoke. Just about every second of the day someone has a cigarette. How does this affect my health? I've been having a sore throat recently and thought I had caught a cold because I had moved from sunny Florida to cold Missouri but had no other symptoms. I feel fine, I just have a sore throat. Maybe there's something wrong with my lungs? Any ideas or information would be greatly appreciated :)
