“Tobacco smoke has been found to have a detrimental effect on the foetus when pregnant women are under the effect of it”.
As shown in a study carried out by researchers at 13 research centres in Asturias, Gipuzkoa, Sabadell and Valencia, over half of non-smoking pregnant women, 55%, are passive smokers.These women are under the effect of tobacco smoke to a considerable extent because a member of the household, their partner in particular, smokes at home.The result of the study has been published in the journal Science of the Total Environment.
