FIU: Research links secondhand smoke exposure during pregnancy to developmental delays in children, adolescents

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have long documented the health consequences of secondhand smoke. Now, a new study by FIU criminal justice professor Ryan Meldrum links prenatal exposure to cigarette smoke to lower levels of self-control in children and adolescents.

Low self-control is one of the strongest known causes of delinquent and criminal behavior in adolescents and adults and researchers have devoted considerable attention to identifying potential causes of low self-control.
