PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A new study finds teenagers exposed to second-hand smoke are at a higher risk of developing respiratory issues than teens who are not.
Researchers looked at more than 7,000 non-smoking adolescents. Those exposed to tobacco smoke at home, or for an hour or more within a week, reported more shortness of breath and a dry cough at night.
They also had more visits to the emergency room or urgent care.
The research was published in the Journal of Pediatrics.
