Description The exposure of children to passive smoking has shown significant associations to respiratory morbidity. The youngest children between 0 to 2 years of age are usually seriously affected. With increasing age of the child a decrease in respiratory illness incidence together with a decrease of the effects of passive smoking were observed. The aim of the study was to assess by repeated investigations the morbidity among children exposed to environmental tobacco smoke (at the age of 6, 18 months and 5 years) and the differences in morbidity in the groups with different exposure in children involved in the ELSPAC study (European Longitudinal Study of Pregnancy and Childhood). The study has provided evidence of the significant influence of the mother's smoking on the child's exposure to passive smoking. The consequences of such exposure are manifested especially as increased respiratory and allergic morbidity, more so in the first 18 months of life than at five years of age.
