Children with autism are two to three times more likely than other children to have been exposed to car exhaust, smog, and other air pollutants during their earliest days, according to a new study.
That new research adds to a mounting body of evidence that shows a link between early-life exposure to pollution and autism spectrum disorders.
Ecolibria have been one of the very few companies that place a large emphasis on the testing of ultrafine dust particulates. The ultrafine particles are extremely small and capable of affecting the deepest parts of the lungs. When these ultrafines carry toxic pollutants like vehicle emissions or industry pollutants, the adverse health effects can be far worse.
