More research claims that air pollution can harm mental health

Sep 27, 2019 12:25 IST

More research released recently indicates that air pollution could lead to depression, anxiety and other mental health problems in kids. A study, published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives, found that short-term exposure to air pollution was associated with psychiatric disorders in children one to two days later. A second study, published in the journal Environmental Research, found an association between exposure to high traffic-related air pollution and depression symptoms. More research is needed to confirm these findings, but this could help create new prevention strategies for children experiencing mental trouble.
