In Utero Exposure to Carbon Monoxide Increases Infants’ Risk of Poor Lung Function

American Thoracic Society (ATS)

Exposure to elevated levels of carbon monoxide (CO) in utero increases infants’ risk of poor lung function at one month after birth, according to new research conducted as part of the Ghana Randomized Air Pollution and Health Study (GRAPHS). While household air pollution from solid fuel stoves has previously been associated with child mortality, this is the first study to investigate the association between household air pollution and lung development beginning in utero and to identify the most harmful times during pregnancy for exposure to this pollution. The study was presented at the 2018 American Thoracic Society International Conference.
