New article presenting results on prenatal exposure to pollutants associated to symptoms at preadolescence
A new article by Elke Rouxel (Inserm) is showing associations between prenatal exposure to pollutants and biomarkers later in life.
Our team in Rennes studied the association between prenatal POP (persistent organic pollutants) exposure and preadolescent cardiometabolic health.
Incorporating data from PELAGIE and INMA cohorts (respectively french and spanish), they studied polychlorobiphenyls (PCB) and organochlorine pesiticide exposure.
For example, they found association between HCB exposure and effect on adiposity and higher blood pressure in preadolescent, with a gender variability.
