Tobacco Exposure Linked to Behavioral Problems in Children (University Herald)

Posted on

On September 28, 2015 the University Herald published an article that reported  new research which suggests that children exposed to tobacco at an early age are more likely to have behavioral problems.

Researchers from Inserm and Pierre and Marie Curie University (UPMC), in collaboration with the university hospitals of six French cities, found that early exposure to tobacco is associated with a risk of behavioral disorders in children, particularly emotional and conduct disorders.

The full research study and its findings can be found in the Journal PLOS One
