A new study links kids' exposure to secondhand smoke to poorer test scores. Researchers at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center studied 4,399 children, aged 6 to 16, and found there was about a three-point drop in reading scores and about a two-point drop in math scores among those exposed to the highest levels of secondhand smoke. The study appeared in Environmental Health Perspectives.
