We don’t know enough about the link between road traffic pollution and cancer in children. Prof John Wright is studying whether air pollution can transfer from pregnant women to their unborn child through the placenta. This work could lead to new measures to protect children’s health and prevent cancer.
Does maternal ambient air exposure to traffic-related particulate matter induce carcinogenic responses in the foetus.
