Forbes Magazine: UC study links air pollution and mental health disorders
A new set of studies conducted by scientists from the University of Cincinnati and Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center have found a link between air pollution and mental health disorders in children.
"This study is the first to show an association between daily outdoor air pollution levels and increased symptoms of psychiatric disorders, like anxiety and suicidality, in children," said lead study author Cole Brokamp, assistant professor of pediatric medicine at the University of Cincinnati. "More research is needed to confirm these findings, but it could lead to new prevention strategies for children experiencing symptoms related to a psychiatric disorder.”
