Cot death vaping link
PREGNANT women who resort to e-cigarettes or nicotine patches to avoid smoking may increase the risk of their newborns becoming cot-death victims. Any kind of nicotine exposure during pregnancy, heightens the chances of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), research from the Geisel School of Medicine in the US suggests.
Scientists found that nicotine in the womb can affect an unborn baby’s central nervous system and cardio-respiratory responses to stressful environments. This could leave infants susceptible to asphyxia.
