Second hand smoke is also dangerous to your Child
Posted in 2014
Children exposed to secondhand smoke in the home are more likely than children in smoke-free homes to develop behavior and learning problems, according to new research. These include learning disabilities, attention deficit, hyperactivity disorders and behavior and conduct disorders.
Worse, the problems often come in twos or more.
"We found that children who are exposed to secondhand smoke in the home have a 50% increased odds of having two or three of these common neuro behavioral disorders," says researcher Hillel Alpert, ScM, at the Harvard School of Public Health.  The study is published in the journal Pediatrics
.Second-hand smoke is characterized as the product released into the environment whenever someone who is smoking exhales. It can also come from the end of tobacco-containing smoking products. There are approximately 4,000 chemicals present in second-hand smoke, many of which have been determined to be related to cancer.  If you are exposed to second-hand smoke during pregnancy, both you and your baby are put at risk.

My advise
1... Secondhand smoke is the combination of smoke from the burning end of a cigarette and the smoke breathed out by smokers. Secondhand smoke contains more than 7,000 chemicals. Hundreds are toxic and about 70 can cause cancer
2.. Since the 1964 Surgeon General’s Report, 2.5 million adults who were nonsmokers died because they breathed secondhand smoke.
3.. Secondhand smoke causes numerous health problems in infants and children, including more frequent and severe asthma attacks, respiratory infections, ear infections, and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)
4..  Smoking during pregnancy results in more than 1,000 infant deaths annually.
5... Some of the health conditions caused by secondhand smoke in adults include coronary heart disease, stroke, and lung cancer.
6.. Secondhand smoke causes nearly 34,000 premature deaths from heart disease each year in the United States among nonsmokers.
7... Nonsmokers who are exposed to secondhand smoke at home or at work increase their risk of developing heart disease by 25–30%
8.. Secondhand smoke increases the risk for stroke by 20−30%
9..  Breathing secondhand smoke interferes with the normal functioning of the heart, blood, and vascular systems in ways that increase the risk of having a heart attack.
10.  Secondhand smoke causes more than 7,300 lung cancer deaths among U.S. nonsmokers each year.
11..  It is important your baby has limited exposure to second-hand smoke even once he/she is born. Babies in contact with second-hand smoke are more likely to develop SIDS. In addition, children exposed to second-hand smoke experience negative effects on their immune system.
12..  They are more likely to have ear infections, colds, respiratory ailments, and teeth problems. Third-hand smoke is likely to be as harmful as second-hand smoke to your infant, so it is important to keep your child away from areas that contain third-hand smoke residue.
13,,  I advise every couple to quit (if habit ) before conceiving.
