Asthma in toddlers linked to exposure to air pollution while in the womb, study finds.
A “huge” increase in the number of visits to doctors by children with asthma problems occurs after a week of raised air pollution, according to another study. The number of inhaler prescriptions also increases significantly, wrote The Guardian a few days ago.
It added that dirty air was already known to increase hospital treatment for severe asthma attacks and other respiratory problems.
Adolescents who were exposed to air pollution as infants have less lung power.
