Air Particulate Pollution and Stress: Effects and Mechanisms for Long-term Maternal Obesity Risks

Project Details

Description

SUMMARY In pregnancy, women typically gain 16-40 pounds and undergo numerous physiological changes with potentially long-lasting consequences. Yet, research on pregnancy as a window of susceptibility to environmental exposures has focused primarily on the child and largely overlooked women’s long-term weight gain and cardiometabolic health. Emerging risk factors for obesity include air pollution that acts via respirable fine particles
