Synopsis by Glenys Webster
"Mothers who breathe secondhand smoke are twice as likely to have children with attention and aggression problems, a study from China reports. While it is known that smoking during pregnancy can affect a child's behavior, this is one of the first studies to show a link to secondhand smoke. Women can be exposed at home or at work when they breathe the smoke from a burning cigarette or smoke exhaled by a smoker."
