Secondhand Smoke Causes Problems

More studies have been done on smoking and difficulties with pregnancy, but now a small study shows that secondhand smoke can cause miscarriages.

It seems that the longer women have been exposed to secondhand smoke the more problems they have getting pregnant and/or staying pregnant. An article on MSNBC says that secondhand smoke contains most of the toxins that harm reproductive system.

This is one reason I am glad that Illinois passed the no smoking law. With the DJ business, we were playing music in a lot of bars and hotels that allowed smoking in their banquet areas. Now we don't have to worry about smoke at all.

If you have smokers in the family, try to minimize the exposure to the smoke as much as possible.
