Air Pollution Puts Children at Higher Risk of Disease in Adulthood
Summary: In a first of its kind, Standford-led study, released last month in Nature Scientific Reports, researchers investigate air pollution's effects at the single cell level and simultaneously focus on both the cardiovascular and immune systems in children. This study confirms previous research that bad air can alter gene regulation in a way that may impact long-term health.
