Air Pollutants Can Be Passed From Mother To Unborn Baby And Enter Developing Brains And Lungs, A New Study Finds

So now, the team believes that research regarding the exact mechanisms and health risks associated with fetal black carbon exposure is urgently needed.

And in the meantime, Professor Tim Nawrot of Hasselt University has called for increased air quality regulation.

“We show in this study that the number of black carbon particles that get into the mother is passed on proportionately to the placenta and into the baby. This means that air quality regulation should recognize this transfer during gestation and act to protect the most susceptible stages of human development,” Nawrot said.
