Secondhand Smoke Causes Ear Infections


Second hand smoke is found to cause ear infections in children. Parents who smoke in their homes and cars are increasing their children’s risk of ear infections and associated problems such as long term hearing loss.

Blowing smoke away, opening a window, and similar measures are ineffective at reducing the risk. The best thing to do is quit and barring that to only smoke outside and away from children.
