This is Why You Shouldn’t Smoke Near Children
Non-smoking adults have a higher risk of dying from serious lung disease if they grew up with parents who smoked, according to US research. The researchers said childhood passive smoking was “likely to add seven deaths to every 100,000 non-smoking adults dying annually”.
The study of 70,900 non-smoking men and women was led by the American Cancer Society. Experts said the best way to protect children was to quit smoking. If participants lived with a smoker during adulthood, there were other health implications, the study found.
Hazel Cheeseman, of campaign group Action on Smoking and Health, said: “This latest study adds to the compelling case to take smoke outside to protect children from harm. The best way to do this is for parents to quit.” Dr Nick Hopkinson, medical adviser to the British Lung Foundation, agreed, saying: “Passive smoking has a lasting impact well beyond childhood.”
Children whose parents smoke are known to be at risk of asthma and poor lung development. This study shows that the effects of childhood smoke exposure persist into adulthood, resulting in chronic obstructive lung disease.Disclaimer:We do not allow users to post content which is copyright and We take strict actions against the users who post infringement content on our website.Although we do not host any content, users post embed videos from youtube, facebook, Dailymotion and Vimeo and are moderated before posting but we still take strict action against the copyright videos posted.If you are an official representative of any company whose videos are posted illegally on our website or you think some video infringe the copyright then you can simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
