A new study shows that babies born to mothers who are exposed to fine dust are more likely to develop eczema. However, expectant mothers can reduce that risk if there are ample green spaces around the house. Here’s more.

It has been found that pregnant women's exposure to fine dust will highly likely cause eczema to their newborns. This discovery was made in a study of 650 pregnant women by an Ewha Womans University research team. The study looked into the correlation between exposure to fine dust during pregnancy and the occurrence of eczema among infants aged six months or younger. The risks of babies suffering from the skin disease jump by 22 percent whenever exposure to fine dust increases by ten micrograms per cubic meter during the initial 12 weeks or earlier stages of pregnancy. The risks of eczema among babies grows 35 percent when exposure to nitrogen dioxide, a representative air pollutant emitted by vehicles, increases by ten parts per billion. The research team presumes that exposure to air pollutants during pregnancy has impacts on newborns, because a fetus' skin structure, which rapidly develops in the early weeks of pregnancy, is very vulnerable to air pollutants. It believes that the air purification function of green spaces help offset the harmful effects of air pollutants.
