"Dr. Jeanette Stingone on Lasting Cardiovascular Effects of Prenatal Exposure to Air Pollution"
Researchers have known for years: what happens to mom in pregnancy affects the baby. That holds true with prenatal exposure to air pollution, which has lingering cardiovascular effects, such as birth defects and a higher risk of obesity, explained Jeanette Stingone, PhD, of Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. “The idea that we know what happens to mom during pregnancy is important for the child,” said Jeanette A. Stingone, PhD, MPH, postdoctoral fellow at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
