New study reveals tobacco smoke can cause miscarriage, stillbirth

By Stella Inger. CREATED Feb 27, 2014

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV)-- Smoking as we all know is something pregnant women shouldn't do.

Now new research shows how tobacco smoke can harm a woman's pregnancy -- even if she's not the one with the cigarette.

Researchers studied more than 80-thousand women and found secondhand smoke exposure in non-smokers--  is linked to problems including miscarriage and stillbirth. 

Women with the highest level of exposure to secondhand smoke-  have an increased risk by 17 percent for miscarriages, and 55 percent for still births.

I'm Stella Inger. I hope you'll join Guy Atchley and me tonight at 5, 6, and 10.

Have a great day!
