You know smoking is bad for your health and pregnant women should not smoke. But you probably don't know smoking is the most common preventable cause of infant death. This book must be read by every parent or future parent. Empty Cribs-The Impact of Smoking on Child Health describes the role of smoking on sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), low birth rate, and childhood lung disease. The book also presents information on other ways to prevent infant mortality. Empty Cribs provides a series of solutions for prospective parents and concerned readers including boycotting companies profiting from tobacco, reducing investments in tobacco-involved companies, and strategies to increase consumer awareness. An extensive appendix is included with resources on health, supporting organizations, and how to quit smoking. The book's message will resonate with parents, prospective parents, anti-tobacco advocates, and people of faith. Empty Cribs will be the first book to document the role of smoking on infant mortality and provide solutions to address the issue. The future of our children is in our hands.
