NEV IORK (Reuters Health) – Smoking during pregnancy brings her children at risk of developing dementia and visual impairment, according to a recent Chinese study.
The study was conducted by researchers at Huazhong University of Science and Technology in China and published their findings on Wednesday in the Acta Ophthalmologica Journal.
Chir is an optical defect that makes the eyes in an unbalanced state, so that every eye rotates in the other direction. One eye can focus forward, while the other eye reflects on the inside, from the outside, up or down.
This imbalance can also be seen in the eyes, and sometimes sometimes disappears or disappears. This imbalance can be transmitted between the eyes.
Eyes also cause visual impairment, sometimes double vision and visual impairment, as well as "blurred" or "eye laziness" as a result of eye neglect in one eye.
In order to investigate the relationship between mothers smoking and childhood injuries, the team reviewed the results of 11 scientific studies carried out in this regard.
They found that mother's smoking during pregnancy led to an increase in the risk of neonatal fatalities of 46 percent, which is one of the most common eye diseases in children.
Smoking of mothers is associated with 10 cigarettes a day during pregnancy, an increase of 79 percent at risk of developing a disease among their children, researchers said.
"Smoking is a public health problem, especially in developing countries, and has a major impact on birth control," said Dr Zukson Lo, head of the research team.
Previous studies have shown that women who smoke during pregnancy are more likely to have children with health problems, especially low birth weight, premature birth, birth defects and sudden infant death syndrome.
She pointed out that smoking of the mother also affects the efficacy of lungs in the baby, which are the main causes of infant mortality, as well as the negative impact on physical growth and maturity in adolescence.
For its part, the World Health Organization reported in its latest report that about 6 million people are killed each year in the Eastern Mediterranean region, including more than 5 million former and current tobacco users, and about 600,000 non-smokers. Smoking is one of the main causes of many chronic diseases, including cancer, lung disease, heart disease, and blood vessels.
