active and passive smokers

Children who live with smokers at greater risk of parents suffering from hypertension or high blood pressure, although they are still small. In fact, hypertension in children may continue until they grow up.

In the website of the Indonesian Pediatric Association (IDAI) mentioned, hypertension in children is a state of systolic blood pressure or diastolic and are on average equal to 95 large percentile for age and sex, performed at least three times of measurement.

Hypertension in children divided into two categories, namely primary hypertension when the cause of hypertension can not be explained. Hypertension is usually associated with heredity, salt intake, stress, and obesity. While secondary hypertension are the result of another underlying disease, such as kidney disease.

In a recent study led by Dr. Giacomo D Simonetti from Children’s Hospital University of Bern, Switzerland, stated that secondhand smoke is a risk factor for hypertension in children.

In his research, Simonetti and his team examined data on 4236 boys and girls aged 5-6 years living in the southwestern part of Germany. Approximately 29 percent of the fathers of the children and 21 percent of their mothers were smokers. As many as 12 percent of children also have parents who smoke.

After calculating factors of heart disease, such as birth weight, premature birth or parental hypertension, the researchers found that parental smoking is an independent factor on the incidence of hypertension in children.

The study also found children whose mothers smoke have a worse impact on blood pressure than if exposed to cigarette smoke from his father.

“Prevention of cardiovascular disease in adulthood can be started from the age of the children by avoiding risk factors, including avoiding exposure to cigarette smoke. The consequences can last long term,” Simonetti said.
