MEHWISH MARYLAND: A new study reveals the risks of a condition in pregnant women that leads to premature births and lifetime neurological and respiratory disorders in children if she is exposed to even a small amount of air pollution. This least amount includes the fine particles that exhausts from cars, power plants, and other industrial resources. This research shows that air carrying these pollutants if inhaled by the pregnant women would have long term destructive effects on the baby due to a condition called intrauterine inflammation. “Twenty years ago, we showed that high levels of air pollution led to poor pregnancy outcomes, including premature births. Now we are showing that even small amounts of air pollution appear to have biological effects at the cellular level in pregnant women,” says the study’s senior author, Xiaobin Wang.
