Secondhand Smoke May Impair Children's Cough Reflex
Date:8/20/2012

ests that even if an exposed child is not coughing, his or her respiratory health may still be affected by secondhand smoke," study co-director Paul Wise, a sensory scientist at Monell, said in the news release.

Future research will investigate if reduced sensitivity to irritants makes smoking more pleasant for teenagers, and whether or not an impaired cough reflex can be reversed, the study authors said.

Sixty percent of American children aged 3 to 11, as well as 18 million young people aged 12 to 19, are exposed to secondhand smoke on a regular basis, the researchers noted.

The findings were published Aug. 20 in the journal Tobacco and Nicotine Research.
