Why does the Mums to Be app have different smoking thresholds?

Why are there different smoking thresholds on the Mums To Be app?

NICE recommends the lowest threshold for a non-smoker should be 3ppm for pregnant individuals. This is to reduce the likelihood of missing potential smokers and missing opportunities to engage in conversation surrounding smoking habits, so that intervention and treatment for smoking is not delayed in pregnant individuals(1).
