Kids whose Parent’s Smoke Are More Likely To Suffer Ear Infections, Says Study
Smoking is one of the unhealthiest habits and affects lives of thousands of people across the globe, through causing a number of health problems. Smoking, active or passive, is already known to impart negative effects on health.
In a recent study, experts have suggested that parents who practice frequent smoking are not only spoiling their own health but also contributing sufficient to cause some ear related complications in their children. Simultaneously, the study suggested that parental smoking has a deep association to increase the instances of ear infection surgeries among the children. To conclude the findings, experts have analyzed the conclusions of more than 61 previous studies and claimed that a majority of ear infection cases were observed due to smoking habits in parents.
Consequently, an expert who has studied the consequences of parental smoking at New York University Medical Center, Dr. Michael Weitzman, also applauded the study and said that ear infections affect a number of people every year and causes severe pain. However, Dr. Michael Weitzman has no involvement in the study.
Simultaneously, a tobacco researcher from the University of Massachusetts Medical School situated in Worcester said: "Ear infections themselves are very common, but the surgery is not”.
