AbstractEnvironmental tobacco smoke (ETS) and its sequelae are among the largest economic and healthcare burdens in the United States and worldwide.

In this paper, we highlight the definition and chemical constituents of ETS, review the existing literature outlining the effects of ETS on atherogenesis and thrombosis in both animal and human models, and briefly outline the public health implications of ETS based on these data.
