I am interested in the effect of the secondary or second-hand smoke on the developement of lung cancer and other related illness in a person that does not smoke. Recent articles have not been able to establish evidence to the dangers of secondary smoking. So is it a myth?? Also, is possible, what evidence is there to show that continual parental smoking may contribute to retarded development of the child? I know that maternal smoking of a neonatal did not contribute any significant deterioration in the child's mental state is she stops before the baby turns 2. is this true?
