Research states that smoking at home can affect the child’s health
Certain circumstances may not seem like a major health issue but sometimes the reasons behind them can be a cause for concern. Snoring is one such habit and research suggests a possible reason for it.
The research shows that children who are affected by second hand smoke are more likely to snore. The chances of a child becoming a snorer go up by two percent for every cigarette being smoked in the house.
The study is considered as a positive development since snoring is considered to be the first step towards sleep apnoea. It has also connected to high blood pressure and heart disease. This offers more evidence to conclude that second hand smoke can be damaging to children who are still developing.
