Pregnant women who also have asthma have an increased risk of premature labor due to air pollution.

The risk of asthma is up to 30 percent in women with more than 30 parts per billion exposure to nitrogen oxide up to three months before conception, while in women without asthma it is eight percent.

Women with asthma are at 12 percent higher risk of premature labor due to exposure to carbon monoxide for the same time.

The last six weeks are also very severe for pregnant women with asthma. Exposure to highly polluting particles, such as acids, metals, and dust particles in the air, also increases the risk of premature labor.

People with asthma should avoid going out of the house during times of extreme pollution to avoid air pollution. We should take measures to reduce air pollution.

Air pollution affects our respiratory system, which causes difficulty in breathing and increases the risk of diseases like asthma, bronchitis, lung cancer, tuberculosis and pneumonia.

Air pollution damages the ozone layer and UV rays can reach the earth and damage skin cancer, eyes and immunity. Air pollution creates a greenhouse effect, increasing the heat in the Earth’s atmosphere, causing changes in weather and increasing sea levels.
