Study indicates parents' Smoking impairs child's Ability to read well People who smoke tend more often to have children who don't read well than do parents who do nol smoke. Furthermore, the children with the most severe reading problems tend to come from homes where both parents use tobacco. These are the findings of Dr. Vearl G. McBride, director of the Heading Development Program at Upper Iowa University. Dr. McBride based his conclusions on the results of a study of the re. r;ls of 200 children with reading problems. According to McBride, 80 per cent of the children attending the Reading Program at Upper Iowa come from homes where cne or both parents use tobacco. With few exceptions, he said, the children manifesting the severest reading and emotional problems live in homes in which both parents smoke. The cause or relationship between smoking and reading? "Wt don't know for sure," says Dr. McBride, "but it appears that toe same things or conditions which create a desire or need in people to sin ke may be causing tin reading difficulty. "We know, for example, that reading is closely connected with the nervous and glandular systems cf the body. It is also known that there are more glandular and nervous disorders among poor readers than among good readers." The underlying "need" for smoking, McBride stated, might create a condition in the tody which would cause an upset in the chemical properties and in the nerve tracts. As the impulses move along these tracts, he pointed out, there must be maintained a proper balance to insure good reading. "While we are guessing as to the exact nature of the need to smoke and its subsequent effects on reading," McBride added, "we do know that once the chemical properties are in imbalance, poor reading results. "We alro know that a glandular upset causes an imbalance in these pn3perties. We know, too, that our records show that a large majority of our poor readers here at Upper Iowa university come from homes where tobacco is used, and that the most severe cases come from homes where both parents smoke. "So ... we are adding two and two and two together," McBride concluded, "and are getting six."
