Jill Baumgartner, lead author of the study and a research specialist at the University of Minnesota’s Institute of the environment: “Although no research results of interest for a but with the whole community, the high blood pressure in boys is a big problem. More than 1/3 children in the United States are exposed to cigarette smoke every day leads to the risk of high blood pressure when they grow up “.
In contrast with the boys, the girls exposed to cigarette smoke often have low blood pressure levels than people without much exposure to cigarette smoke. Special scientists note this because they assume that there probably are a few differences in the sexes helped girls succumb to the smoke better.
