Breathing dirty air during pregnancy raises odds of childhood ADHD-related behavior problems

Prenatal exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, or PAH, a
component of air pollution, raises the odds of behavior problems
associated with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, at
age 9, according to researchers at the Columbia Center for Children's
Environmental Health at the Mailman School of Public Health. Results are
published online in the journal PLOS ONE.
