Background. Prenatal and postnatal exposure to tobacco smoke adversely affects maternal and child health. Secondhand smoke (SHS) has been linked causally with sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) in major health reports. In 1992, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) first noted an association between SHS and SIDS, and both prenatal exposure and postnatal SHS exposure were listed as independent risk factors for SIDS in a 1997 California EPA report (republished in 1999 by the National… 
Technical Report—Secondhand and Prenatal Tobacco Smoke Exposure abstract
  • 2009
Secondhand tobacco smoke (SHS) exposure of children and their families causes significant morbidity and mortality. In their personal and professional roles, pediatricians have many opportunities to
Tobacco Industry Efforts Undermining Evidence Linking Secondhand Smoke With Cardiovascular Disease
TLDR
The industry interest in preserving corporate viability has affected the design and interpretation of their cardiovascular studies, indicating the need for great caution in current debates about future tobacco industry regulation and development of reduced-harm tobacco products.
Towards estimating the burden of disease attributable to second-hand smoke exposure in Polish children
TLDR
This study provides a conservative estimate of the public health impact of SHS exposure on Polish children and indicates that lack of comprehensive, up to date health data concerning children, as well as lack of measures that would best reflect actualSHS exposure are major limitations of the study.
EFFECTS OF ENVIRONMENTAL TOBACCO SMOKE ON THE RESPIRATORY HEALTH OF CHILDREN
TLDR
This paper reviews of several articles between year 1992- 2009 obtained from the internet; Pubmed and Medline and discusses primarily on impact of ETS on during the fetal period and infancy and childhood.
Genetic studies in Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) have been motivated by clinical, epidemiological, and/or neuropathological observations in SIDS victims, with subsequent pursuit of candidate genes in five categories: (1) genes for ion channel proteins based on electrocardiographic evidence of

A comprehensive economic assessment of the health effects of tobacco use and implications for tobacco control in Bangladesh
TLDR
The enormous tobacco-attributable healthcare costs and productivity loss underscore the need to strengthen the implementation of tobacco control policies to curb the epidemic.

TLDR
Analysis of internal tobacco industry documents and regulatory agency and court records reveals that smoke-free workplaces would dramatically reduce total secondhand tobacco smoke exposure, providing significant worker and public health benefits.

Parental Smoking and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome: A Review of the Evidence
TLDR
Evidence relating parental smoking to sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) risk in their offspring is reviewed, based on English-language papers covering the period 1966–1996, finding that adjustment for numerous potential confounders very substantially weakened the association between SIDS and parental smoking.
Effect of maternal cigarette smoking on pregnancy complications and sudden infant death syndrome.
TLDR
The low success rate of smoking cessation among pregnant women suggests that efforts to reduce the complications of pregnancy attributable to tobacco use by pregnant women should focus on preventing nicotine addiction among teenaged girls.
Tobacco smoke exposure at one month of age and subsequent risk of SIDS--a prospective study.
TLDR
There was a discordance between prediction of cotinine concentration and prediction of risk of SIDS, but the study lacked the power to detect modest effects, that is, those altering risk less than twofold.
Environmental tobacco smoke and tobacco related mortality in a prospective study of Californians, 1960-98
TLDR
The results do not support a causal relation between environmental Tobacco smoke and tobacco related mortality, although they do not rule out a small effect, and the association between exposure to environmental tobacco smoke and coronary heart disease and lung cancer may be considerably weaker than generally believed.
Parental Smoking and Middle Ear Disease in Children: A Review of the Evidence
TLDR
Though it is prudent for parents not to expose their children to high doses of environmental tobacco smoke for long periods, the overall epidemiological evidence does not convincingly demonstrate that exposure to environmental tobacco Smoke increases the incidence of middle ear diseases in children.

TLDR
The evidence suggests that interventions can be effective in reducing children's exposure to ETS, and those based on sound behavior change theory have yielded the most promising results.
Review of risk factors for sudden infant death syndrome.
TLDR
The overall picture that emerges from this review is that affected infants are not completely normal in development, but possess some inherent weakness, which may only become obvious when the infant is subjected to stress.
Changing Concepts of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome: Implications for Infant Sleeping Environment and Sleep Position
TLDR
The present statement is intended to review the evidence about prone sleeping and other risk factors and to make recommendations about strategies that may be effective for further reducing the risk of SIDS.
Environmental tobacco smoke. The Brown and Williamson documents.
TLDR
The tobacco industry's public and private responses to rising concern over the health effects of environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) are examined, finding that the industry's strategy regarding passive smoking has been remarkably similar to its strategy regarding active smoking.
