The lung function of girls who were exposed to high levels of second-hand smoke was six times worse than boys with equal smoke exposure, according to a study in the journal Pediatric Allergy and Immunology. Researchers noted that children who had allergies during early childhood and were exposed to high levels of second-hand smoke had a higher risk for reduced lung function at age 7 compared with those without allergies.
