Smoking during pregnancy not only affects the pregnant woman but it also affects the health of the child in the womb.This has been confirmed in a new study. Studies have found in the report that women who smoke during pregnancy, their children can grow up obese.This study has been published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology. It is reported in the study that Chemerin protein is spread in the skin of the child who’s mother smokes during pregnancy. Chemerin protein is a type of protein that is formed by fat cells in the body.
In the report of the previous study, it is reported that Chemerin protein is found in large amounts in the blood of people suffering from obesity.
At the same time, according to a new study report, smoking during pregnancy involves changes in the child’s genes, which play an important role in the formation of fat cells in the body.
University of Kentucky researcher Kevin Pearson said that, on the basis of the study, it can be said that women who smoke during pregnancy, their children are at high risk for obesity.
However, the reason behind this has not been fully confirmed yet.For this study, the researchers studied 65 pregnant women.The results showed that more than half of pregnant women in the study used to smoke during pregnancy.
