Diesel exhaust fumes can cause harm to embryo
Toxic traffic fumes can increase the risk that women will miscarry, researchers have warned.
Thedirty aircreated by the vehicle output stunts the growth ofembryosand can result in earlypregnancy loss, new research suggests. They said that women should avoid gettingpregnantwhen there were high levels ofpollutionin the air.
While this did not stop theembryoimplanting in the womb it did cause development problems, increasing the risk that the women would go on tomiscarryby up to two and a half times.
Dr Paulo Marcelo Perin, from the University of Sao Paulo, in Brazil, part of the team which carried out the study, said: ‘Our recommendation would be to not getpregnantwhen you have high levels ofpollution.’
Around one in 10 pregnancies in Britain ends inmiscarriage.
A second study estimates that being exposed to high levels of air pollution can cut a woman’s chance of successful IVF by the same rate as being a year older. Researchers at Penn State College of Medicine in Pennsylvania found that high levels oftraffic pollution, specifically nitrogen dioxide, reduced the chance that IVF would work by around 9 per cent.
