Kids who are exposed to second hand smoke in early childhood are more likely to grow up to be physically aggressive and antisocial, a new study has warned.

Researchers from University of Montreal, Canada, found aggressive behaviour in kids was linked specifically to secondhand smoke exposure in childhood, regardless of whether they were exposed during pregnancy or their parents have a history of being antisocial.

“Secondhand smoke is more dangerous that inhaled smoke, and 40% children worldwide are exposed to it,” said researcher Linda Pagani.
