New Study Reveals Teenage Girls Are At Higher Risk of Health Disorders Due To Passive Smoking

Date: 2nd May 2013

A group of researchers carried out a study and found that teenage girls are more at risk of suffering from health problems due to passive smoking than boys of their age.

For the study, the researchers surveyed more than 1000 youngsters in Perth, Australia who were born in between 1989 and 1992.

During the study, the researchers collected information relating to their exposure to passive smoke right from the time when they were 18 weeks till the time when the children reached the age of 17.

The researchers carried out blood tests to calculate the cholesterol levels of the youngsters. It is noteworthy that by that time, 48 percent of the participants were under the influence of second hand smoking at their homes.

As the study concluded, Doctor Chi Le Ha, the leading author of the study and other researchers found that 17-year-old girls brought up in a passive smoking environment were prone to suffer from a reduction in HDL cholesterol levels. The HDL cholesterol is responsible for reducing the risk of heart diseases.

According to Doctor Chi Le Ha, the study made it apparent that exposure to passive smoking may prove to be a primary cardiovascular risk factor for women than men.

Doctor Chi Le Ha reveals that, in the study, second hand smoking did not affect teenage boys in a similar manner and this showed that exposure to passive smoking may be more damaging for teenage girls than boys.

The results obtained from the study were published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism
