42% of children are exposed to snuff smoke daily or occasionally, because 26% of parents smoke at home. This is shown in a study by Portuguese researchers.
The research, published in the latest issue of the “Journal Tobacco Prevention”, shows that a significant number of children are exposed to smoke at home, despite the evidence that to be a passive smoker is harmful to health in all phases of life, especially in childhood.
"Snuff consumption at home is a risk factor for subsequent children who become smokers," told me the coordinator of a Smoking Area at Houston Centre Hospital, who recalls that passive exposure causes coughing, hoarseness, asthma, increased the risk of acute infections (bronchitis and pneumonia) and repeated respiratory infections.
It would be essential to maintain the work reported on the damage of snuff, the need to continue with public awareness campaigns and go smoking on the balcony asshole smoker!
