The deveopment of the brain may be badly affected due to smoking in your teens,a study has revealed.Brian is vulnerable to the effects of tobacco especially during adolescence,when it rapidly matures.Researchers have shown that young smokers,particularly boys,are more likely to suffer hearing problems,making it harder for them to concentrate in the class.
Dr.Leslie Jacobson ,a paediatric psychiatrist from Yale University feels that the levels of disruption in hearing are significant enough that these smokers start to be less attentive in the class.
Jacobsen observed the effect of smoking and brain deveopment in a group of youngsters aged between 14 and 19.Changes,found in regions responsible for relaying signals to ear,were greatest in smokers,suggesting the brain is at heightened risk while maturing.
IF YOU ARE
In teens—It’s up to you to decide to smoke or not.
A parent–Explain your teen how dangerous the smoking can be and tell them not to go it atleast in the teen age.
