Substances toxiques dans l’air ambiant et tumeurs cérébrales de l’enfant : étude californienne Volume 16, issue 2, March-April 2017


This news is based on the following article: von Ehrenstein O, Heck J, Park A, Cockburn M, Escobedo L, Ritz B. In utero and early-life exposure to ambient air toxics and childhood brain tumours: a population-based case-control study. Environ Health Perspect 2016; 124: 1093-9.doi: 10.1289/ehp.1408582

According to this study of a population of children younger than six years, the risk of brain tumors could be increased by exposure, in utero and during the first year of life, to various toxic substances found among air pollutants.
