According to a study, yes. Why, on the other hand, is anyone’s guess. Is it due to abused children being more likely to be exposed to second hand smoke? Could be. I was exposed to second hand smoke as a child, but I don’t have asthma. I do, however, have numerous allergies, and had many problems with ear infections as a child that have left me with slightly damaged hearing as an adult.
So I know second hand smoke does affect children, but does it explain the study results? Or is the study’s data questionable? What’s your experience been?
