Long-term exposure to air pollution – reduced lung function in children

Leave a comment

Scientific Knowledge on the Subject

Long-term exposure to ambient air pollution has been associated with reduced lung function in children. However, the role of timing of exposure remains unclear as well as possible effect modification by allergic status and other factors.

What This Study Adds to the Field

In this prospective birth cohort study we found association between traffic-related air pollution exposure during infancy and decreased lung function in children up to 8 years of age. Our results suggest stronger effects in children sensitized to common allergens. Early life exposure to traffic-related air pollution seems to have long-term respiratory consequences in susceptible groups such as atopic children.

I like canoeing, photographing, friends, movies, food, humor, and going on trips. I dislike rudeness, dishonesty, violence, nastyness, and people not caring for others. I do not drink much, I do not smoke and I do not do drugs. I love friends who are kind to me and stick with me. If you want to give me a gift, the best gift is to stop smoking and stop using fragranced products. Then you give me health and that dear friend, is the best gift a person can get. It is a gift of love. I got asthma and I am hearing disabled.
