Prenatal Exposure to Pollution Raises Risk of Autism in Kids & Car Pollution Linked to Childhood Cancers.   Prenatal Exposure to Pollution Raises Risk of Autism in Kids
TIME Healthland, Alexandra Sifferlin, 06/18/2013

Pollutants in the air are known to affect brain development, but the first national study of in utero exposure and autism rates raises new concerns.
Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) say that early-life exposure to pollution, including diesel particulates, mercury and lead, could contribute to a higher risk of autism disorders.

CAR POLLUTION LINKED TO CHILDHOOD CANCERS: 

Even in utero, children may be affected by exposure to certain compounds in car exhaust.

Reporting at the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research in Washington, D.C., scientists said that mothers who had higher exposure while pregnant to traffic pollution coming from car and truck emissions were more likely to have children who developed cancers like acute lymphoblastic leukemia and a type of eye cancer.

The researchers studied 3,950 children born between 1998 and 2007 who were part of the California cancer registry. They estimated the amount of traffic within a 1,500 meter radius of each child’s home during every trimester of the mothers’ pregnancy and during the child’s first year of life, and, based on factors like traffic volume, emission rates, road geometry and weather, calculated the exposure to car pollutants, beginning in utero and through the baby’s first year.
