The World Health Organization considers air pollution the world’s greatest single environmental health risk. Researchers across the country are finding evidence linking air pollution and fertility. One study out of the School of Public Health clearly showed a link between poor air quality and reduced fertility.
“There’s growing evidence that there may be a relationship between air pollution and fertility,” says study author Joan Casey, a postdoctoral scholar at the School of Public Health. “It’s really convincing that something might be going on.”
