Father's smoking prior to conception raises risk of asthma in the child
Father (September 9, 2014 - Insidermedicine)
From Germany - A new report presented athlete European Respiratory Society International Congress finds that a father's smoking prior to conception could raise a child's risk of asthma. Researchers studied over 13,000 mean and women, examining the link between participant's smoking history prior to conception and the incidence of asthma in the child. Results showed that asthma was much more common among children of fathers who smoked prior to conception, with risk increasing the longer the father had been smoking. There was no such connection among mothers.
