New York: Air pollution can not only affectone`s respiratory system, it can lead to lower IQ levels amongkids, a new study claims.
"These weren`t even super impressively high levels ofpollution" but the dip in IQ level was enough to affect schoolperformance and scores on standardised tests, Perera said. Most PAH pollutants -- black carbon and other particulatematter -- come from motor vehicle emissions, especiallydiesel- and gas-powered cars and trucks, and from the burningof coal. Perera suggested that by limiting outdoor physicalactivity on smoggy days and adopting better policies ontraffic congestion, we can reduce exposure to toxic chemicals. Bureau Report
