  • Maternal diet could be linked with low birth weight

    Maternal diet could be linked with low birth weight

    CREAL researchers have observed that maternal diet was associated with dioxin-like activity in maternal blood during pregnancy and this prenatal exposure might lead to reduced birth weight. Dioxins are found in extremely low concentrations in the environment but are very toxic. Even so they remark that more studies are needed to develop updated dietary guidelines for women of reproductive age, aiming to the reduction of dietary exposure to persistent organic pollutants as dioxins and dioxin-like compounds.

  • Gas cooking may increase asthma symptoms

    Gas cooking may increase asthma symptoms

    Gas cooking may contribute to an increase in bronchial responsiveness, a characteristic of asthma related to the contraction of the small airways. According to CREAL researchers, gas cooking affect people with GSTM1 null genotype and this may reflect the oxidant effects on bronchi of exposure to nitrogen dioxide.

    Symptoms of Attention Deficit at Age 4 Predict Difficulties Throughout Childhood

    The presence of symptoms of attention deficit in a 4-year-old child predicts that they will continue to have attention difficulties later on, according to a study by CREAL, an ISGlobal research centre, that evaluated symptoms in 400 children from Menorca. According to Mònica Lopez, researcher and the study’s lead author, "We can now say that at 4 years it is already possible to observe indications that a child will have attention difficulties during childhood, either ADHD or otherwise”.
