Air Pollution Increases the Risk of Hypertension in Pregnant Mothers.
In a new study conducted by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, there is a strong link between air pollutants and the rising prevalence of hypertension in pregnant mothers.
The objective of the clinical research is to investigate how much pollution the 22,000 pregnant mothers were exposed to during the whole period of their pregnancy. The result of the study revealed that 4.7 % of the 22,000 pregnant women are at risk to acquiring hypertensive disorders (gestational hypertension, pre eclampsia and eclampsia) not to mention when they are exposed heavier and longer to pollutants during the first and second trimester of their pregnancy.
