In the News: The unexpected way second-hand smoke affects you

 
 
Have family members that smoke? Then, girlie, you need to hear this. According to National Public Radio's Allison Aubrey, the second-hand smoke that lingers in your house from those pesky cigarettes that your parents, brother or sister smoke has been linked to a new area of kids' lives: school.

A new study found that students with one family member that puffs on a cigarette a couple times a day are likely to miss an extra day of school per year. Ditto for the students with two smokers in the house -- they miss at least 1.54 days of school. Just how does second-hand smoke translate to school absences? It all comes down to respiratory illnesses and asthma breakouts that living with smokers can cause. Yikes!

Surprised that something as seemingly minor as second-hand smoke can put a stop to your perfect attendance record? Blog it out, babes.
