Asthma Asthma is caused by over-reactive airways in the lung. There is sometimes a family history. Asthma can be worsened by air pollution or smoke exposure. Although asthma can run in families, your baby will have only half of your genetics so may not get asthma. Your asthma is extremely unlikely to affect your baby as long as you keep your asthma under control. Be sure your doctor is aware if you have asthma symptoms.

• The Surgeon General has determined that there is no safe level of exposure to ambient smoke!

• If you smell even a subtle odor of smoke, you are being exposed to poisonous and carcinogenic chemical compounds!

• Even a brief exposure to smoke raises blood pressure, (no matter what your state of health) and can cause blood clotting, stroke, or heart attack in vulnerable people. Even children experience elevated blood pressure when exposed to smoke!

• Since smoke drastically weakens the lungs' immune system, avoiding smoke is one of the best ways to prevent colds, flu, bronchitis, or risk of an even more serious respiratory illness, such as pneumonia or tuberculosis! Does your child have the flu? Chances are they have been exposed to ambient smoke!
