UW Report: children exposed to tobacco smoke at home

Here it comes:

MADISON - Despite substantial progress in the past few years, hundreds of thousands of Wisconsin kids are still regularly exposed to high levels of secondhand smoke in their homes.

A report issued today by the UW Comprehensive Cancer Center and co-presented by the University of Wisconsin Center for Tobacco Research and Intervention (UW-CTRI) conservatively estimates that more than 211,000 children are exposed to tobacco smoke in their homes on most days.
At least they're not calling for legislation to outlaw smoking in private residences.
