Tobacco exposure causing asthma in children often denied by caregivers

Most adults are aware that tobacco smoke exposure can trigger an asthma attack in a child; however, some smoke in the presence of an asthmatic child. What makes matters worse, a new study has found that when a caregiver was asked about tobacco exposure, the caregiver often denied it. The findings of the study were published online on January 20 in the journal Pediatrics by researchers at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center (Hershey, Pennsylvania),

Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (Cincinnati, Ohio), and Boston Children’s Hospital (Boston, Massachusetts).
