Second-Hand Smoke Increases Risk Of Depression In Children

If you haven’t heard enough reasons to quit smoking, here’s another one.

Children and teens who are exposed to second-hand smoke are at a greater risk of suffering from mental health disorders like depression, anxiety, and ADHD, according to a new study.

Researchers found that 60% of kids between 3 and 11 are exposed to second-hand smoke.

That is unacceptable!

While the study was slightly imperfect, and some of the results have been called into question, there is a general consensus that second-hand smoke negatively affects the mental health of children.

Seriously… if you smoke, it’s time to stop.
