Most countries have smoke-free workplace, this is really really the minimum acceptable in my opinion, but even with that, I find it very hard to enter or leave a building without entering those toxic clouds.
People smoking often doesn't consider the wind direction, and it even seems they are less in danger than the smoke stream spreading with wind to other people
Problem: in my country (France) ashtrays are systematically in front of doors, and people are smoking directly there, I've contacted the company renting the offices, explaining the advantage of putting ashtrays farther, no replies yet, they surely don't care, without any more incentive or law
Question: What could you suggest?
Below are sources pretty scary concerning Environmental Tobacco Smoke, that caused me this fumiphobia, that should normally make stop any smoker instantly and permanently. I'm really keeping breath, optimizing my way for not taking even 0.1% of ETS (you will think it' excessive, but there is no smoke exposure threshold known at this time, any theshold might cause harm):
-Is PM2.5 From Air Pollution The Same As From Smoking?
-Proposed Identification of Environmental Tobacco Smoke as a Toxic Air Contaminant
-Particulate matter from tobacco versus diesel car exhaust
-Chemistry and Toxicology of Cigarette Smoke and Biomarkers of Exposure and Harm
