Effects of air pollution on child health and do interventions work?

There are significant impacts from air pollution on physical health, both in children and in
adults. Of note a number of the health effects in adults are actually the end result of

surrounding the possible improvements that can be made through reductions in air
pollution exposure through interventions.
