My son (who is now 2mos old) was born with a heart murmur and we were advised to keep him away from second hand smoke (which we have). However, the affects of second hand smoke in relation to his murmur were never explained to my fiance and I. We were wondering if anyone could tell us how his heart would be directly affected.
