  • According to a recent UCLA study, babies that are exposed to pollution in the womb are more likely to have autism compared to those who have mothers who spend their pregnancy in “clean air.”

    UCLA compared the relationship between levels of air pollution during pregnancy compared with the 7,603 children with autism and 75, 635 children without autism who were born between 1995 to 2006 in the highly polluted Los Angeles.

    The study found that babies who had higher exposure to pollution had an almost 10 percent higher chance of having autism, compared to the children whose moms were living in lower levels.
