New research shows effects of mothers' smoking on kids continue long after birth
Jun 2, 2016
A new study on animals led by the University of Yale has found that smoking while pregnant can cause genetic changes in children that can affect health long after birth. The team believes the results help to explain why maternal smoking has previously been linked with behavioural changes such as attention deficit disorder, hyperactivity disorder, conduct disorder, and addiction. For this new study the team of researchers looked at lab mice exposed to nicotine during their early development.
