  1. Child health level in Moscow as related to ambient air pollution.

    Article - En anglais

    Ambient air in Moscow is characterised by high concentrations of nitric oxide and other pollutants.

    The level of air pollution varies from one neighbourhood of the city to another.

    This accounts for the variability of child health levels.

    In the most severely polluted areas the prevalence of childhood bronchial asthma is much higher ; cases of disharmonious physical development among children are more frequent.

    A map of Moscow depicting the degrees of environmental hazards has been established on the basis of interrelated studies of ambient air quality and child health levels.
