Lungs of London schoolchildren “damaged by poor air quality”

Early findings of research into the impact of poor air quality shows that it is reducing the lung capacity of schoolchildren in London, writes Steve Eminton. The lung capacity of schoolchildren in some London boroughs is being reduced through living by and going to schools near main roads, according to initial findings of  ongoing Low Emission Zone research .

The early indication of some of the findings relating to lung capacity in research work currently being undertaken by the Lung Biology Group of the Environmental Research Group at King’s College London, was given at last weekend’s air pollution conference “Cities for Clean Air, London 2012”.
