Obesity and passive smoking reduce oxygen supply to unborn baby
Date:3/16/2010

The mechanisms that link the raised levels of immature blood cells in the samples to obesity and passive smoking or complicated. Obesity is known to affect metabolism, hormones, blood pressure and other physiological factors. Tobacco smoke inhalation whether direct or indirect may affect the amount of oxygen reaching the unborn child, because hemoglobin is poorly oxygenated. Nicotine can also cause narrowing of blood vessels, vasoconstriction, and so reduce oxygen supply through that mechanism too.

The team speculates that even apparently healthy newborns of obese mothers and passive smokers may suffer subtle effects of the reduced oxygen levels during the pregnancy. "We recommended that every effort to control maternal obesity and prevent exposure to tobacco smoke be made," the team says, they insist that "smoking regulations in the workplace and at home should be enforced strictly for the well-being of our infants."
