We've all been warned about the dangers of smoking and second hand smoke, but third hand smoke is something you don't hear about too often. After cigarette smoke is exhaled, third hand smoke is what gets absorbed by furniture, clothes and walls and poses a threat to the health of smokers and non-smokers alike. It's said that there 4,000 chemicals linger after a cigarette is put out, which could eventually lead to the onset of cancer.

This ad from The Israel Cancer Association is quite timely, considering that May 31st is annually recognized as World No Tobacco Day and June 1st is National Cancer Survivors day. With this ad, a couch shaped like a giant cigarette shows that you might be constantly breathing in smoke, even if you don't have a lit cigarette in your hands.
