Submission + - Abused children smoke more as teens and adults->

vinces99 writes: Researchers have long suspected some kind of link between childhood abuse and smoking. But in an interesting twist, a new study finds a connection not between whether or not abused children will ever begin smoking but to how much they smoke if they do start. “In other words, people are as likely to smoke whether or not they were sexually or physically abused, but they’re inclined to smoke more if they were abused and have a history of smoking,” said Todd Herrenkohl, a University of Washington professor of Social Work. A paper documenting the work is published online in the Journal of Adolescent Health.
