A new Harvard study suggests kids who are exposed to secondhand smoke are 50% more likely to develop a neuro-behavioral disorder-like ADHD.

Researchers used national survey data of about 55,000 children for the study, and found about 6% of kids under age 12 were exposed to secondhand smoke.

The study does not prove smoking causes behavior problems...it simply shows an association.
