SAITAMA--A recent study has shown that children exposed to secondhand smoke at home have lower levels of beneficial cholesterol that protects against arterial sclerosis, and therefore, have a higher risk of experiencing a heart attack later in life.

The passive inhalation of tobacco smoke during childhood also can increase the risk of heart attacks in adulthood, according to the study, which was conducted by a group of doctors in Kumagaya, Saitama Prefecture, headed by Toshihiro Ino, a specialist in pediatric cardiology. The results of the study, which also shows the smoking habits of mothers generally has about twice the impact of those of the father--due to the amount of time spent in direct contact with a child--were to be presented at a meeting of the Japanese Society of Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery that began in Yokohama on Saturday. For the study, medical checks for lifestyle-related diseases were conducted on fourth-graders. Each child who said their parents smoked underwent a urinalysis to check the level of nicotine metabolism matter in their blood streams. The results showed 60 percent of the children who said both parents smoked and 30 percent of those who said one parent smoked tested positive for the matter. The children with more nicotine in their urine had lower high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, or "good cholesterol"--up to 10 percent less than other children their age.
