Air Pollution and Infertility

February 1st, 2016


Shruthi Mahalingaiah, MD MS recently published a paper titled “Adult air pollution exposure and risk of infertility in the Nurses’ Health Study II” in the Human Reproduction journal.  She found that increased exposure to air pollution is associated with an increased incidence of infertility.  She was recently interviewed by Lisa Rapaport at Reuters in order to spread the word to the general public about the dangers of air pollution.  You can read the article here: Air pollution and traffic fumes tied to infertility risk.  Following the interview, several other news organizations around the world picked up the story.  We are very excited that this very important story is reaching the general public!
