Parents should not smoke, at least for their kids. Recent studies have shown the relation between parent’s smoking habit and kid’s heart rhythm problem. It is called Atrial fibrillation (or a-fib). When kids exposed to smoking parents, the heart rhythm is disturbed. This could lead to stroke or heart failure in kid on a long term. For every packet of cigarette that parents smoke, kid’s a-fib risk rose by 18%. Also, because of smoking habit in parents, the risk of kids smoking as they grow up increases.
Kids watch their parents’ actions and follow rather listening to them. Parents should be aware of it.
