Researchers analyzed data from more than 5,200 primary school college students in France and discovered that those subjected to secondhand smoke while in the womb and/or at a young age were in higher risk for behavioral problems, particularly emotional and conduct disorders. The association was strongest among children subjected to secondhand smoke both during pregnancy and after birth. However, because this was an observational research, the authors can’t say for sure that secondhand smoke caused the behavioral complications. The study was published online recently in the journal PLoS One.
