Smoking fathers put unborn child at risk of ADHD

According to a new research study, the risk of children having ADHD is heightened when the mothers had smoked while pregnant.

According to WebMD, the study, done in Denmark and led by assistant professor at Aarhus University, Dr. Jin Liang Zhu, looked at medical records of about 85,000 children who were born in Denmark to moms who all agreed to be a involved in the study from the years 1996 to 2002.

WebMD reports that the study showed that out of the 85,000 children, 2,000 showed signs of ADHD. What was also noted was that the numbers were lowest for the kids who had parents who both didn’t smoke, while the numbers were highest for kids who had parents who both smoked.

According to The Westside Story, after looking over the results of the study, researchers concluded that women who smoked while pregnant were 1.6 times more likely to birth a child with ADHD, and if the father also smoked while the mom was pregnant, then the child was 1.8 times more likely to have ADHD.

According to The Westside Story, the study shows that women who use nicotine products like patches could also affect the likelihood of their children having ADHD, although this hasn’t been definitely proven.
