What is secondhand smoke ?

Also called passive smoking, the secondhand smoke (SHS) is the unintentional inhalation of smoke from one or more smokers. Passive smoking can therefore concern the smoker's entourage, the people he encounters in his daily life, but also the fetus in his mother's womb.

In tobacco smoke, there are more than 4'000 chemicals, of which at least 250 are known to be harmful, and more than 50 to be carcinogenic to humans.

What does this test tell you?

The NarcoCheck® Secondhand Smoke urine test can detect minute traces of nicotine in the urine. Because it is 20 times more sensitive than a conventional test of tobacco consumption (active smoking), this test will highlight the characteristic traces of the passive inhalation of nicotine.

This test is therefore a major asset in the search for risky situations, such as exposure to environmental tobacco smoke. This allows to get a real and clear warning and subsequently, to lead any necessary prevention action.

The NarcoCheck® Secondhand Smoke urine test is very easy to use at home and gives a result in 10 minutes.

It can be used with adults and children.

A positive result for this test will reveal a contamination by passive smoking.

  • increases the risk of having a heart attack by 27%.
  • increases the risk of developing lung cancer (25% in a non-smoker if his spouse smokes).
  • in pregnant women, increases the risk of miscarriage, fetal delay or premature birth.
  • in infants, increases the risk of sudden death by 50%.
  • About 40% of children in the world are regularly exposed to passive smoking at home.
