A US research claims thats houses near, beside a busy main road or motorway could cease lung growth in children. The research consisted of 3677 children aged between 10-18 years, which is the normal time for the lungs to completely develop. The researchers indicated that pollution can stop the lung from growing completely even for those who are healthy.
Children living close to major roads/streets in cities with high levels of air pollution are prone to greater risks of lung problems. Scientists have no idea what air pollution has to do with lung growth but believe that lung inflammation of daily air pollutants may be the cause of it.
Ps. My exams got over today so i am free. I should now be able to post.
