Pollution liée au trafic et leucémie infantile : revue actualisée de la littérature et nouvelles méta-analyses Volume 18, issue 6, November-December 2019


This news is based on the following article: Filippini T, Hatch EE, Rothman KJ, et al. Association between outdoor air pollution and childhood leukemia: a systematic review and dose-response meta-analysis. Environ Health Perspect 2019 ; 127(4) : 46002. doi : 10.1289/EHP4381


This review of the recent literature supports the hypothesis that traffic pollution exposure plays a role in the onset of childhood leukemia. The various meta-analyses conducted point in particular to benzene emissions.
