Exposure to outdoor (ambient) and indoor (household) particulate air pollution places our youngest infants at increased health risk.
A new report from the State of Global Air found that in 2019, nearly 500,000 newborns globally died within the first month of life, most from exposure to household air pollution.
Learn how a mother’s exposure to air pollution contributes to low birth weight and preterm birth weight, which can affect her newborn’s susceptibility to diseases, like lower respiratory infections and survival.
While the biological reasons for the linkage between air pollution and adverse birth outcomes are not fully known, it is thought that air pollution may affect a pregnant woman, her developing fetus, or both in ways analogous to tobacco smoking, which is a well-known risk factor for low birth weight and preterm birth.
It’s everywhere: in the rain, snow, our food, our waters, even in the human placenta! Mercury is poisoning life on Earth.
ARE YOU AWARE artisanal miners' gold ore processing produces 20% of the world's supply of gold used in our jewellery, iPad’s, iPhone, computers, and other electronics devices?
Artisanal miners' ore processing uses mercury, a deadly neurotoxin to extract gold from crushed or milled ore releasing 2,000 tonnes of mercury vapor to our atmosphere annually and is the world's largest anthropogenic source of deadly mercury pollution overtaking coal fired plants mercury emissions in 2017.
Mercury pollution is documented in 2021 by Oxford University earth scientists to stay airborne up to one year then precipitates back to Earth in the form of rain and snow.
But finally there's hope!
