HealthDay (10/2, Preidt) reports a new study indicates “early exposure to secondhand smoke may lead to behavioral problems in children.” The study by the French Institute of Health and Medical Research in Paris “analyzed data from more than 5,200 primary school students in France and found that those exposed to secondhand smoke while in the womb and/or at a young age were at higher risk for behavioral problems, particularly emotional and conduct disorders.” The study was published online in PLoS One.
