Secondhand smoke makes children antisocial and aggressive

International group of scientists, which included Linda Pagani of the University of Montreal and Caroline Fitzpatrick from the University in new York, the study has established quite an interesting fact. It turns out that children who are passive smokers, are more aggressive and have a higher propensity for antisocial behavior than those children who never smoked. A more detailed study is published in the pages of the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.

In their study, the researchers used statistical data concerning infants and during their early childhood. Some parents were smokers, some don't, and the comparison found that passive Smoking in childhood has a certain effect on his psychology. Passive Smoking harms the psychology of the child until they reach the age of ten. If during this entire period the child is breathing in tobacco smoke, as a rule, he becomes hostile and aggressive.

This phenomenon causes the fact that the brain in the age of the child is formed and develops new social functions. Meanwhile, passive Smoking supplies children's brain toxins, which leads the cases of oxygen deficiency that causes more harm than the presence of toxins.

During a scientific experiment, the scientists analyzed the data of more than 2000 children, while paying particular attention to psychological portraits. The obtained results did not depend on the antisocial behavior of their parents, nor from Smoking parents during pregnancy.
