A study published this year in Environmental Health Perspectives correlates air pollution with cardiovascular problems and premature births. This study focuses on the health effects of fine particulate air pollution which is emitted from factories, traffic and industrial activities. In addition to its effect on cardiovascular issues and premature birth, it is implicated in increased risk of infant mortality, breathing and feeding problems of infants, cerebral palsy, and increased risk of developing developmental delays.
This study has implications for locations of schools and residential areas near factories. Air pollution and fine particulates can travel on wind currents affecting areas removed from the immediate sources of pollution. Knowledgeable decisions are required to protect your home environment from these fine particulate emissions.
