Even at levels well below those stipulated in current EU air-quality directives.

Pedersen was component of a group of European researchers coordinated by CREAL and INSERM to measure the impact of contact with low levels of polluting of the environment during pregnancy on low birthweight at term which has been associated with respiratory problems in childhood, as well as other diseases in life later on. The study also looked at the impact on head circumference due to the potential influence on neurodevelopment.Waye, M.D.: Colonoscopic Polypectomy and Long-Term Prevention of Colorectal-Cancer Deaths It has been a long-standing up belief that screening for colorectal tumor can affect mortality from the condition in two ways: by detecting cancers at an early, curable stage and by detecting and removing adenomas.1 Detection of early-stage colorectal tumor has been shown to be connected with a reduction in mortality from colorectal malignancy in screening trials.2-4 However, an adenomatous polyp is a more common neoplastic locating in endoscopic screening. We previously reported that colonoscopic polypectomy in the National Polyp Research cohort reduced the incidence of colorectal tumor.5 A significant question is if the cancers prevented by colonoscopic polypectomy in the cohort were those that had the potential to cause death.
