Urban air is dangerous for pregnant women.

As American scientists have found out, the air in its toxicity is close to cigarette smoke, which, in particular, has an extremely dangerous effect on the health of women who are expecting a child. It was found that exposure to polluted air of noisy metropolitan streets leads to the development of hypertension in pregnant women.

The composition of urban air includes carbon monoxide and sulfur dioxide, as well as dust, acids, particles of earth, and harmful metals.

The effects of harmful substances for pregnant women are especially dangerous in the first trimesters of pregnancy: it is during this period that the influence of an unfavorable atmosphere can affect the fetal development of a child.
