How clean is the air in your child’s day care center? Is it clean enough for young children to be breathing every day? Harmful contaminants build up quickly indoors. Everything from outdoor air pollution to off-gassing from carpets to allergens and germs can accumulate in the home, causing all kinds of problems. Clean air and daycare centers is an important concern for parents.
Exposure to dirty air can be dangerous for babies. A study published by the American Thoracic Society says dirty air can increase the risk of infants developing bronchiolitis, a serious respiratory infection.
Dirty air and asthma: The March of Dimes says polluted air can worsen symptoms for young children with asthma.
Air contaminants and autism: Harvard researchers found pregnant women who were exposed to certain pollutants at high levels were twice as likely to have an autistic child compared to pregnant women who lived in areas with low pollution levels. You can read more about that study here.
