Do you smoke 10 cigarettes a day? This is what happens to your child's eyes


NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Smoking during pregnancy places children at risk of developing dementia and visual disturbances, a recent Chinese study suggests.

Research was conducted by Huazhong Science and Technology Centers researchers in China and published results on Wednesday in Acta Ophthalmologica.

Wound is an optical failure that makes the eyes unbalanced, making each eye different in the direction. One eye can focus forward, while another eye bends in, out, up or down.

This imbalance can also be observed in the eyes, and sometimes it sometimes disappears or disappears. This imbalance can be transmitted between the eyes.

Eyes also cause deterioration of vision, sometimes double vision and impaired vision as well as "blurred" or "lazy eyes" due to visual impairment with one eye.

Studying the relationship between mother smoking and childhood injury, the team reviewed the results of 11 research results.

They found that maternal smoking during pregnancy was associated with a 46% increase in the risk of newborn deaths, one of the most common eye diseases in children.

Maternity smoking was associated with 10 cigarettes per day during pregnancy, an increase of 79 percent of the risk of developing the disease for their children, the researchers said.

"Smoking from mothers is a public health problem, especially in developing countries, and has a major impact on fertility management," says research team leader Zukson Lo.

Previous studies have shown that women who smoke during pregnancy are more likely to have children with health problems, especially low birth weight, premature birth, congenital deficiencies, and sudden death.

He pointed out that mothers' smoking also affects the effectiveness of lungs in babies, which are important causes of child mortality and its negative effects on physical growth and maturity in adolescence.

The World Health Organization, meanwhile, reported in its most recent report that tobacco kills nearly 6 million people in the East Mediterranean area annually, including more than 5 million former and current tobacco users and about 600,000 smokers exposed to exposure to exhaust fumes. Smoking is one of the main causes of many chronic diseases, such as cancer, lung diseases, heart disease and vascular disorders.
