The Link Between ADHD and Smoking During Pregnancy

Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD for short, affects about 5–8 percent of school-age children.

ADHD is a fairly common neurological condition that presents itself through inappropriate levels of inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Although ADHD is not life-threatening, it can become a very difficult obstacle to overcome.

Recent data shows there is a link between ADHD and smoking during pregnancy so what does it mean?

Can Smoking During Pregnancy Cause ADHD?

Data shows that smoking can raise the chances of ADHD by more than double. If the mother does not quit smoking during pregnancy, the chances of ADHD for the child will be increased by 2.4 times.

Furthermore, there is also a link between lead exposure and ADHD, exposure to lead can also increase the chances of a child having ADHD. Most cases of lead poisoning ADHD are due to contaminated paint, soil, and old water pipes.

The findings clearly demonstrated a link between ADHD and smoking. Smoking raised the chances for ADHD by 2.4 times, and lead exposure raised it by 2.3 times. However, when a child was exposed to both smoking and lead, the chance of having ADHD was eight times as high!
