Washington: A new research found that early-life exposure to traffic-related air pollution was significantly associated with higher hyperactivity scores at age 7.The research was conducted by faculty members from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine`s Department of Environmental Health in collaboration with Cincinnati Children`s Hospital Medical Center."There is increasing concern about the potential effects of traffic-related air pollution on the developing brain. This impact is not fully understood due to limited epidemiological studies," said Nicholas Newman, DO, director of the Paediatric Environmental Health and Lead Clinic at Cincinnati Children`s, who was the study`s first author."To our knowledge, this is the largest prospective cohort with the longest follow-up investigating early life exposure to traffic-related air pollution and neurobehavioral outcomes at school age," he added.
