Prenatal nicotine intake during pregnancy can cause systolic blood pressure problems among offspring



New Delhi, Oct. 21 (ANI): Mothers who consume snus, which is a smokeless tobacco with moist powder containing nicotine, during their pregnancy, their children tend to suffer from systolic blood pressure, a recent study said. Snus, when placed between the gums and upper lip produces high doses of nicotine, not including the flammable by-products found in tobacco smoke. Unlike chewing tobacco or American sauce, it doesn't need to be spit on when using snus. According to research, the use of nicotine during pregnancy, regardless of whether it is in snus, cigarettes, smoking tobacco or vaped tobacco products, is unsafe and may have a negative impact on a child's future health. The current study isolated nicotine exposure by studying women, who only used Swedish snus during pregnancy. Previous studies of women, who smoked during pregnancy, consistently found adverse effects, including preterm birth, low birth weight, and stillbirth. In this study, the researchers measured blood pressure and heart rate among 21 children, five to six years, whose mothers used snus during pregnancy and 19 children of the same age whose mothers did not use tobacco products during pregnancy. They found that systolic blood pressure in children exposed to snus was 4.2 mmHg higher than children without nicotine exposure.
