Biomarkers of environmental tobacco smoke in preschool children ad their mothers.
Adverse health effects attributable to environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) include respiratory illness and lung cancer in nonsmokers.
There is accumulating evidence that children may be at heightened risk of cancer later in life as a result of exposure to carcinogens during their early development.
It is of concern that as many as 9 million American children under the age of 5 years may be exposed to ETS.
Our goal was to assess whether levels of cotinine and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon-albumin (PAHalbumin) are associated with ETS exposure in children and in women of reproductive age, after accounting for background exposures to PAHs in the diet, workplace, and the home environment.
