Exposition prénatale aux polluants de l’environnement intérieur et de l’air extérieur et trajectoire de développement cognitif jusqu’à l’âge de 7 ans Volume 18, issue 1, January-February 2019



This news is based on the following article: Gonzalez-Casanova I, Stein AD, Barraza-Villarreal A, et al. Prenatal exposure to environmental pollutants and child development trajectories through 7 years. Int J Hyg Environ Health 2018 ; 221 : 616-22. doi : 10.1016/j.ijheh.2018.04.004


This Mexican study investigating developmental trajectories and exposure to a variety of pollutants suggests that poor indoor air quality during pregnancy increases the likelihood of suboptimal cognitive development in children. The results support the need for a policy to improve living conditions.
