Someone said that when smoking, it's more toxic to passive smoke than it is to the person smoking - with certain highly achievable conditions, of course. I guess it'd be about a table length apart or closer for it to be more dangerous to the passive smoker.
As far as i know, the chemicals in smoke change as they cool in the air. This might make it more toxic, but the amount the passive smoker inhales is far less than what the smoker inhales. Also the smoker inhales tar, while the passive smoker doesn't. I'm not sure which one is the most damaged, but my guess is the smoker.
